The Philadelphia Flyers look for their fourth straight win on Thursday night when they host the Florida Panthers. (7 p.m., CSN-PH)

Philadelphia has bounced back from a shutout loss to San Jose with three consecutive wins, the most recent coming Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings. Philadelphia netted two first period goals Tuesday and added another in the second to build a 3-1 lead, then held for a 3-2 win after Detroit delivered a third period score. Ilya Bryzgalov notched 37 saves in the victory.

Florida snapped a two-game losing streak on Sunday, ousting the Ottawa Senators 4-2. The Panthers surrendered two first period goals to dig a 2-0 hole, but responded with four unanswered tallies in the final two frames. Marcel Goc, Krystofer Barch, Mikael Samuelsson and Jack Skille all scored during the Florida rally.
