With a playoff birth already locked up, the Philadelphia Flyers will jockey for seeding the rest of the way, with just six games remaining on their regular season schedule.

They'll travel to Toronto on Thursday night to take on the Maple Leafs, a team that has struggled defensively throughout the year. That bodes well for the Flyers, who are near the top of the NHL in offense, and are seeking to hit a defensive stride behind goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

Bryzgalov will be out on Thursday night after suffering a chipped fracture in his foot during warm-ups of Monday night's outing against Tampa Bay, which means Sergei Bobrovsky will likely start between the pipes.

The Flyers stand at fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings with 96 points, and can creep within just two points of Pittsburgh with a win and a Penguins loss to the Islanders on Thursday night.

Game Time: 7:00 p.m. EST

TV Schedule: Comcast
