Flyers receive good news ahead of tonight's matchup

Published February 15, 2024 at 1:01 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers somewhat have a tough stretch coming up, with three straight road games including the 2024 NHL Stadium Series at MetLife Stadium against the New Jersey Devils. The Flyers will begin their stretch tonight in Toronto as they take on Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs. After yesterday's practice had multiple Flyers missing, the team received good news regarding two key pieces on Thursday morning.

This morning the Flyers held an optional skate at the Scotiabank Arena before taking the ice at 7:00p.m. EST tonight. Two specific Flyers who were missing from yesterday's practice, participated in the optional skate and are set to play in tonight's matchup.

Jamie Drysdale and Owen Tippett were both on the ice this morning and skating around after missing yesterday's practice. Although yesterday was listed as a maintenance day for the two, Flyers fans could officially exhale as Tippett and Drysdale hit the ice.

As far as Tyson Foerster and Rasmus Ristolainen, their injuries seem much more severe as a timetable has yet to be listed for Foerster and Ristolainen is expected to miss at least a month.

Tonight proves as a key Eastern Conference matchup for the Flyers as they look to earn their fifth straight win and remain undefeated since the All-Star break. Puck drop is set for 7:00p.m. EST in Toronto.
