The Flyers welcome the Carolina Hurricanes into Philadelphia tonight as they try for a season best four straight wins. The boys in orange have beat the Sabres, Penguins & Islanders over this streak scoring fifteen goals in the process. They've given up just six goals over that period with rookie Sergei Bobrovksy in net.
Things haven't been going quite as well for Carolina, who have lost three of its last five and been shut out in two of its last three contests. It's also given up at least three goals in each of its last five games. Many of Carolina's problems this season can be traced back to its anemic power play, which is just 6 of 47 on the year. That's less than 13% and in the bottom eight of the league. The Flyers penalty kill, by comparison, is seventh best in the NHL.
The Flyers have fared quite well against Hurricanes in recent years having one six straight games between the two, including three straight in Philadelphia.
