Philadelphia Flyers Host New Jersey Devils Tonight

The Philadelphia Flyers look to notch their second three-game winning streak of the season when they host the New Jersey Devils Thursday night at 7 p.m. (CSN-PH).

The Philadelphia Flyers look to notch their second three-game winning streak of the season when they host the New Jersey Devils Thursday night at 7 p.m. (CSN-PH). 

The Flyers have rebounded since losing five out of seven games, winning their last two against Carolina and Buffalo. Sean Couturier, James van Riemsdyk and Scott Hartnell all scored within the first seven minutes against Buffalo Wednesday, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves as Philadelphia held on for a 3-2 win. 

New Jersey has fallen into a skid, losing three straight and five out of six. Goalie Martin Brodeur returned from a shoulder injury Wednesday against Toronto, but only notched 18 saves in New Jersey's 5-3 loss. Johan Hedberg, who started every game in Brodeur's absence, is expected to start in net Thursday night.

The Flyers have beaten New Jersey in eight of the teams' last ten meetings in Philadelphia.
