THREE THINGS TO WATCH
1. Win the third interval
Because the Flyers' demise continues on this eight-game shedding streak, one of many greatest issues that stands out is the third interval. For the reason that slide started, the Flyers have been outscored 10-2 within the third body
“I mentioned it earlier than the sport: I perceive from a participant’s standpoint, the frustration that comes tonight proper at this time limit,” coach Dave Hakstol mentioned. “I mentioned it earlier, we have now to have a brief reminiscence on it as a result of we have now to show round and play (Tuesday) evening as a result of that’s our subsequent alternative and backside line you'll be able to overthink it or put any terminology that you really want on it, backside line is we have now to exit and play one other good hockey sport and push to get a win.”
2. Discover some emotion
The Flyers have reacted like a workforce that is been overwhelmed down and never like a workforce that is indignant. Even when they are overwhelmed down in the event that they proceed to be robotic in how they carry themselves they're going to have a a lot tougher time breaking out of this droop
Three. Goalie matchup
Michal Neuvirth will seemingly be between the pipes for the Flyers within the second half of this back-to-back. He has a 2-Three-Zero report in six profession video games in opposition to the Sharks with a 2.26 goals-against common and .925 save share
Aaron Dell seems to be the man in internet for San Jose. Dell, who performed beneath Dave Hakstol at North Dakota, has appeared in two video games in opposition to the Flyers and has stopped 54 of 56 pictures he is confronted.
