The Philadelphia Flyers look to return to the winner's column when they visit the Ottawa Senators Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m.

After beginning the season with three straight wins, Philadelphia (3-1-0) was beaten by the Los Angeles Kings and a pair of former Flyers on Saturday. Justin Williams scored both of Los Angeles's regulation goals, and Mike Richards assisted on Jack Johnson's overtime tally at 1:39 of the period as the Kings handed the Flyers their first loss, 3-2. Danny Briere and Matt Carle both scored for the Flyers.

The Senators (1-4-0) have given up 23 goals in five games, the majority of them given up by starting goalie Craig Anderson. Anderson, who could miss Tuesday's game due to personal reasons,  is 1-2-0 with an .853 save percentage and a 5.07 goals-against average this year. If Anderson does not play Tuesday, expect Alex Auld to get the start.

Philadelphia has relied on free agent signing Ilya Bryzgalov in net. Bryzgalov stopped 23 shots against the Kings in his first loss of the season.

"I felt okay out there tonight," said Bryzgalov on Saturday. "I wasn't as busy as I was the last time, but they had some good chances out there and I was seeing things well. That last goal, he was just in a good spot and put it in the empty net."
