Flyers Vs Coyotes: Philly Hosts Streaking Coyotes Tonight

The Philadelphia Flyers host the streaking Phoenix Coyotes tonight, giving Ilya Bryzgalov an opportunity to face his old mates.

The Philadelphia Flyers host the streaking Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night (7 p.m., CSN-PH), giving Ilya Bryzgalov an opportunity to face his old mates.

Bryzgalov, who signed a $51 million contract with Philadelphia after four seasons with Phoenix, has posted a 4-0-1 record in his last five starts, bouncing back after a slow start to the season. He told the Philadelphia Inquirer facing his old team is special.

"The Phoenix Coyotes. The other side. You're in a different jersey," Bryzgalov said. "Ah, I don't know. It's special. It's my former team. I have lots of friends. I can't forget the time I played there. It's going to be a very special game. It was good years."

The Coyotes have thrived despite losing Bryzgalov this offseason. Exceeding preseason expectations, Phoenix has compiled a surprising 9-4-3 record that leaves the Coyotes just one point behind Dallas for the Pacific Division lead.

The Flyers also enter the game with momentum, with a two-game win streak and a 6-2-2 record during their last ten games.
