The 14-7-3 Philadelphia Flyers travel to Phoenix tonight to face the 13-8-3 Coyotes. The Flyers have won three of their last four games, including a shootout win in Ahaheim against the Ducks last night. At one point the Ducks were up 3-0 in the second period, in their new head coach, Bruce Boudreau's debut. Following back-to-back Jaromir Jagr goals the Fylers were right back in the game, down only 3-2. A Scott Hartnell goal late in the third tied the game to complete the comeback, which the Fyers won in overtime on a Claude Giroux goal. At 3.5 goals per game, the Flyers are the most prolific offense in the NHL.
The Coyotes have won two of their past three by a combined score of 7-2. However; they were shutout 1-0 two nights ago by the Winnipeg Jets.
The Flyers are 1-3 in the second game of a back-to-back this season but 8-3-1 on the road. Phoenix does not have a very impressive home record at 6-4-2.
