After after beating Toronto, the best Canadian team, on Monday the Flyers take on one of the worst on Wednesday, Montreal.

The Flyers will commence life after the Chris Pronger injury. The defenseman is expected to miss two weeks after he was hit in the eye in Philadelphia's 4-2 win against the Maple Leafs. Pronger did not travel with the team to Montreal.

In the matchup on the ice, the Flyers will look to continue their success against the Canadiens, who sit in the basement of the Northeast Division with just four points. Montreal has struggled to score goals this season, ranked 25th in goals per game and 29th in power play conversion.

Keep an eye on the Flyers net, where goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, who started and won against the Maple Leafs, could be pushing Ilya Bryzgalov -- Philadelphia's expensive offseason acquisition -- for minutes.

Game Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Arena: Bell Centre, Montreal
TV Schedule: Comcast Sports
