Flyers welcome Canadians to Philadelphia for a game of the last five

The Philadelphia Flyers have had an incredibly streaky 2021-22 season in the NHL. Filled with injuries, disappointments, numerous losses and trade rumours, the Flyers are either desperate for a change or they’re getting a little too comfortable with their position in the standings.

Although Philadelphia has mostly been on losing streaks, like the two-game skid they found themselves in, they will have a solid chance to win today when they host the Montreal Canadiens at the Wells Fargo Center.

Philadelphia Flyers

Record: 18-30-10 (46 pts, 8th in Metro)

Despite losing four of the last six games, the Flyers have shown their loyal fans some positive things to take away from some of those matchups. Like re-signing Rasmus Ristolainen to a new five-year deal, which includes a pay cut, and putting on a quality fight against the Carolina Hurricnanes.

But fans also received a lot of negativity. Philadelphia has lost all of its recent matchups against teams vying for the playoffs, except for their 2-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights, which was largely lifted by Carter Hart’s 47-save night.

They also lost one of their most consistent players, Scott Laughton, who is now out indefinitely after suffering a concussion in last Thursday’s 6-3 loss to the Florida Panthers. Laughton took clean hip control from Florida’s Petteri Lindbohm and was awkwardly sent headfirst into the boards from the hard impact of the blow. When Laughton hit the boards he appeared to be knocked unconscious and play was stopped so he could be helped off the ice to a standing ovation and receive medical attention.

Lindbohm seemed worried about Laughton, but he had to drop his gloves and fight Travis Konecny ​​before he had a chance to see the full effect of the check he had thrown. Philadelphia losing Laughton with the kind of season he’s had is a major loss for the club.

“He’s a player with heart and soul,” goaltender Carter Hart said after Thursday’s loss to the Panthers.

Montreal Canadiens

Record: 15-35-8 (38 pts, 8th in the Atlantic)

The Montreal Canadiens are one of the few NHL teams to do worse than the Flyers since the start of the season. Although they just hired hockey legend Martin St. Louis, who was born and raised not far from Montreal, in an effort to create something new at their club, the Canadiens are still the worst team in the game. league.

They are certainly performing better already in the new era of St. Louis in Montreal, emphasizing that their offense is awake and playing much better than they have all season. Don’t expect Montreal to get an easy two points tonight, especially when Cole Caufield is on the ice as he finally begins to warm up and play like the fans have been begging him to.

Projected programming

Caufield-Suzuki–Anderson

Hoffman–Pitlick–Gallagher

Byron-Evans-Pezzetta

Lehkonen–Poehling–Armia

Koulak–Petry

Romanov-Chiarot

Schueneman–Wideman
