The streaking Philadelphia Flyers will be back at it after a disappointing and boring loss to the Florida Panthers last night. The Flyers have now lost three games in a row following their seven-game winning streak which came after their 10-game losing streak. Things will not get any easier with a visit to the NHL's top team.
Michal Neuvirth is expected to get the start in goal tonight. It will be his first action since he lost to the San Jose Sharks back on November 28. He is 4-2-0 with a 2.71 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage in eight career games against the Lightning.
Since the start of the 2010-11 season, the Flyers have picked up just two wins in Tampa Bay with just one of those in regulation. The Lightning currently boast an incredible 16-2-1 record at home this season.
