The Flyers have failed to stop the bleeding, as they have lost five of their last seven games. They currently sit three points out of a playoff spot, but their recent struggles against the Capitals, along with a nine-game winning streak from the Islanders, have buried their chances of securing one of the top two spots in the standings come playoff time. They'll have to fight with the Penguins and Bruins to try to secure one of the final two playoff positions.
They will try to apply the tourniquet as they face the Rangers tonight. They'll have Michael Raffl back in the lineup as he will play for the first time since injuring his hand on February 27th. The Flyers will also use Alex Lyon as the backup tonight instead of Brian Elliott.
Flyers: 13-9-3 (29 points, 5th place) Rangers: 11-12-3 (25 points, 6th place)
