The battle of Pennsylvania is always fierce and this afternoon’s game between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia promises to be no exception. The Flyers earned a 4-0 victory against the Penguins yesterday and Pittsburgh would love to return the favor.
The game will start at 12:30 p.m. ET and will be on NBC. You can also watch it online via our livestream player.
The Flyers have won seven of their last 10 games, but they can’t afford to slow down now. They have a mere two-point lead over the Detroit Red Wings in the battle for a Wild Card spot. With the Washington Capitals and New Jersey Devils also within striking distance of Philadelphia’s spot, there is a lot at stake for the Flyers this afternoon.
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
