The Philadelphia Flyers start a three-game road-trip tonight in New York against the Rangers. The start of a tough back-to-back with the Rangers & Toronto Maple Leafs.

After another two-goal comeback on Saturday, even though it fell short in the end, head coach John Tortorella was extremely happy with his team. Continuing his message of positivity even in a late comeback overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

Tanner Laczynski, who has been away from the club for the birth of his first child, is back with the Flyers. Laczynski could make his return tonight. Wade Allison would be a healthy scratch if Laczynski is in the lineup.

The Flyers vs Rangers matchup has been bad to the Flyers recently. Losing four of the last five meetings.

Carter Hart will make his 7th start of the season. Hart is 2-0-0 with 1.50 GAA & .957% in 2-starts on the road this season.
