Flyers host Hurricanes on Pride Night in mid-Monday matchup

The Philadelphia Flyers will certainly want to avoid the eye of the Carolina Hurricanes in this matchup, as the Hurricanes currently hold first place in the Metropolitan Division.

The Hurricanes are coming off an important win over the second-place Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon. They’ll travel across the state and take on the Flyers today at 3:00pm on Pride Night for a mid-Monday matinee!

Get your 2:30 coffee at work folks, you won’t want to miss the Flyers aggravating you during your rush hour commute home! Flip a coin for who makes you yell obscenities first: That guy in the Corolla who cut you off on 76 or the Yandle-Seeler pairing getting mauled by the Canes’ top line. Let’s see how the Flyers stack up vs the Canes.

News and Notes

  • Rasmus Ristolainen re-enters the lineup after missing 3 games with an upper-body injury. Patrick Brown is also making his return to the ice, coming back from a knee injury. His last game was a 3-2 OTL vs the Sharks on January 8th.
  • The last time the Hurricanes flew into town on Black Friday, the Flyers took a beating. Sebastian Aho scored twice and the Canes netted four straight unanswered goals to walk away with a 6-3 win in Philadelphia. Joel Farabee scored a pretty slick shorthanded goal though.
  • Today is Pride Night at Wells Fargo Center! The arena will be decked out in rainbow colors and the Flyers will be using Pride Tape in warmups. The sticks then will be auctioned off afterwards by Flyers Charities. The Flyers will also be hosting multiple LGBTQ+ organizations at the game as well with complimentary tickets and will be celebrating Pride throughout the game.
  • The Flyers have an all-time record of 53-31-7 against the Canes and have outscored them in those games 284-232. There have been four Flyers hat tricks against the Canes, scored by Danny Briere (2007), Joffrey Lupul (2007), Scott Hartnell (2008), and Jeff Carter (2010).
