After having its five-game winning streak snapped Sunday against the New Jersey Devils, the Philadelphia Flyers get another crack at the visiting Devils on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET on CN8).

A day after losing to the New Jersey Devils, the Philadelphia Flyers get a shot at a bit of revenge Tuesday when they host the Devils at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. ET on CN8). The Flyers (39-22-7, 85 points) are looking for a bounce-back victory after having their five-game winning streak snapped Sunday by the Devils (40-24-5, 85 points), while New Jersey is looking to surpass Philly for fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings.

On Sunday, the Devils used an 18-save performance from goaltender Martin Brodeur to defeat the Flyers 4-1. Brodeur has been the key -- 1.01 goals against average -- in New Jersey's recent six-game span that has featured a 5-1-0 record.

Meanwhile, Philly is looking to use the recent solid play of its goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov -- three shutouts in the past four games -- to regain its winning momentum. Also on a hot streak, is center Claude Giroux who has netted four goals in five games.

This is the sixth and final meeting between these two Atlantic Division rivals this season. The Devils lead the series 3-2.
