The Philadelphia Flyers are set to visit Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Canada for a cross-conference clash against the Calgary Flames.

The Philadelphia Flyers received goals from Oskar Lindblom and Carsen Twarynski while Travis Konecny, Justin Braun, Matt Niskanen, and Travis Sanheim recorded assist. The Philadelphia Flyers dominated the Vancouver Canucks in the shot department, 32-24.
The Philadelphia Flyers were solid in keeping the Vancouver Canucks off the scoreboard as they held them to 2 goals on 24 shots. The Flyers starting goaltender Carter Hart had a good game in the crease as he recorded 22 saves which pushed his season save percentage to .938 and GAA to 1.62. The Philadelphia Flyers were dominated by the Vancouver Canucks in the faceoff circle, 34-27.
The Calgary Flames come into this matchup with a 2-3-1 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the San Jose Sharks, 3-1.

The Calgary Flames have struggled to open the season as they have dropped 4 of their 6 games, but they are clearly the more talented team in this matchup. The Flames have one of the most electric young players in the NHL as Johnny Gaudreau has already put up 7 points, and he should find success against a Flyers team who has been on the road for 2 of their 3 games this season. The Flames should be able to give enough support to their struggling goalies on their home ice, and they will even out their record with a win.
