After a 2-1-0 road-trip thru Western Canada, the Flyers return home a match-up against the struggling Arizona Coyotes. A game the Flyers can’t overlook.

While the Coyotes are win-less so far this season, their games have been closer than their record shows. Losing 5 of their 9-games by 1-goal. (3-games with empty net goals).

Tonight, one Coyote will have extra motivation to get a win in Philadelphia. Former Flyer Shayne Gostisbehere makes his return to Philadelphia.

As for the Flyers, they will be without defenseman Ryan Ellis once again tonight. Missing his 5th straight game with a “nagging” lower-body injury per Alain Vigneault.

“When you’re missing a guy of his type of caliber, whether it’s a forward or defenseman or goalie, it’s a huge miss,” Keith Yandle said. “It’s just one of those things where everyone else needs to step up a little bit and try to fill the void as much as you can and hope that he can get back as quick as possible.”
