The Flyers look to repeat last night's spectacular win in St. Louis as they head into Dallas to battle the league leading Stars.
The Philadelphia Flyers pulled off the night's biggest upset on Thursday as they went into St. Louis and laid a beating down on the home town Blues in a game that looked closer than it was and now they'll look for a similar effort in Dallas on Friday. The Flyers haven't had the best start to the year but in the Metro division there is still plenty of wiggle room and plenty of time left for them to get back in the mix as they sit just seven points back of the third seeded Islanders. The Flyers are likely to turn to Steve Mason in this spot after Michael Neuvirth got the call last night as he will face off against Kari Lehtonen or Antii Niemi at the other end.

The Stars have taken the league by storm this season and while many predicted they would be a playoff team this season there are very few who expected they would be in the running for the President's Trophy and the Stanley Cup. Dallas holds the league's best mark heading into the weekend with an impressive 21-5-2 record and are eight points up on the second seeded Blues in what is turning into the most lopsided division lead in the NHL. Dallas is lights out at home and while Philly played very well last night I don't think they will find the same result here as the Stars are too good and should get another victory at home.
