The Flyers are coming off of an overtime loss to the New York Islanders, 4-3. Morgan Frost tied the game with 10 seconds left, but he made a turnover in overtime, that cost them the game. Philadelphia’s new goalie, Ivan Fedotov, made his debut in the second period, and made 19 saves in the loss.

Match Prediction

Philadelphia is fighting for their playoff lives. They have lost five in a row, and they are playing the first of a back-to-back this weekend. Buffalo has nothing to play for since they are all but eliminated. The Flyers were called out by their head coach. Then, the next day, John Tortorella got a lot off of his chest by saying, “I am proud of our team. From day one when you could see this room come together, I love coming to the rink and working with these guys. But it’s my job to make sure they understand where we’re at now. We’re not regular season now.” I am expecting the Flyers to come out and show that they will put forth a strong effort against the Sabres.
