Avalanche Vs. Flyers: Philadelphia Begins Five-Game Road Trip

The Philadelphia Flyers begin its longest road trip of the season Monday, as they visit the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO (9:00 p.m. ET on COMCAST).

What better way to answer Saturday's 6-0 drubbing to the Boston Bruins, then to hop on a plane and begin a five-game road trip. That's exactly what the Philadelphia Flyers will do Monday, as they face the Colorado Avalanche in an inter-conference match up at the Pepsi Center, Denver, CO (9:00 p.m. on COMCAST).

The Flyers (20-8-3) had their seven-game winning streak stopped Saturday when they were blanked by the Bruins. However, this season the road seems to be the best place for Philadelphia, which owns a 12-3-1 record away from the Wells Fargo Center, to get back on track. Currently, the Flyers have a won five straight away from home.

Philadelphia, though, will be battling the injury bug again, as its top draft pick Sean Couturier will not be available Monday after the center suffered a hit to the head in the first period of Saturday's loss. This is the third head injury to hit the Flyers' medical sheet. Already, Philadelphia has lost its captain and top defenseman Chris Pronger for the season because of a head injury, while leading-point getter, center Claude Giroux, is out indefinitely because of a concussion.

Meanwhile, the Avalanche (15-17-1) are currently in last place in the Western Confernece's Northwest Division. Colorado has dropped four of its last six games, but did earn a road victory, 2-1, over the Washington Capitals on Saturday.
