PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Flyers will try to break even on their six-game road trip tonight as they wrap things up in Pittsburgh.
After hammering the Islanders on Monday in New York, 7-0, the Flyers are 2-3 on this trek. The other win came in Winnipeg.
Overall on the season the Flyers are 7-9-1, good for 15 points and that has them sitting fourth in the Atlantic Division. They are seven points behind the Penguins, who are tied with New Jersey for first place.
While the Penguins are 11-5, much of their damage has come on the road where they have won eight of ten games. They are just 3-3 in six games at home.
This will be the second meeting of the season between these two teams. The first came in the season opener back on January 19th at the Center, Pittsburgh winning 3-1.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Sarah Baicker, who covers the Flyers for CSNPhilly.com, about tonight’s match-up.
