Game 19 Preview: Flyers at Penguins


The Flyers have a crucial three-game stretch in front of them, as they will face their most-hated rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins are just two points behind the Flyers in the standings, so it is vital for Philadelphia to have a successful stretch of games to either maintain or grow their lead over the Penguins in the East Division.


With Sidney Crosby out due to COVID protocol, the Flyers will have every chance to come away with two points in tonight's game. Crosby has been a notorious Flyers killer, with 107 points in 72 games.


Travis Konecny is off the COVID protocol list and will be back in the lineup tonight. He'll take Nicolas Aube-Kubel's spot in the lineup as he will be eased back into game action on the fourth line.

Flyers: 11-4-3 (25 points, 4th place) Penguins: 11-8-1 (23 points, 5th place)
