The Flyers after having yesterday off, will take on the Minnesota Wild (41-22-8) coming off a 2-1 win over the Devils on Tuesday. Flyers have been up and down in the league standings recently, but currently sit at 27th.

There are no changes to the Flyers lineup as of yesterday and this morning, Egor Zamula stays up with the team after a strong performance against the Panthers, putting up 2 assists. Brendan Lemieux is looking like a promising left winger, in 6 games with the Flyers he has 2 goals and 3 assists.

Key Players:
