The Philadelphia Flyers will put a cap on their four-game West Coast swing Tuesday, as they visit the San Jose Sharks (10:30 p.m. on CN8).
The NHL trade deadline has passed and now its time to get back to playing some hockey, and that's just what the Philadelphia Flyers will do Tuesday when they visit the San Jose Sharks at the HP Pavilion (10:30 p.m. ET on CN8).
The Flyers (34-20-7, 75 points) are trying to string together consecutive victories for the first time since Jan. 10-12 after defeating host Calgary Flames, 5-4, Saturday, while the Sharks (32-22-7, 71 points) will be trying to extend their winning streak over Philly to nine games.
On Saturday, Philly played their third of a four-game West Coast swing, which has featured two extra-session victories, the first coming last Tuesday at the Winnipeg Jets, 5-4, in overtime. Sandwiched between the two wins was a loss at the Edmonton Oilers, 2-0, Thursday.
On Monday, the Flyers were quiet at the NHL trade deadline, but the Sharks were not acquiring forwards Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi. The moves were made to hopefully help them move themselves up the Western Conference standings, which currently has them sitting in seventh place.
