The Flyers get to head into their 3rd game of the season without a single loss on the year. While that may not seem that impressive, what is impressive is the way that the Flyers were able to play against their first two opponents. The Flyers have scored a total of 8 goals and the last game was a shutout against the Devils.

Carter Hart has been the goalie who has helped to lead the Flyers on the year. He has managed to give up only 1.50 goals a game on the season. He has saved 94.6% of the shots that have been sent towards him on the year and has only allowed 3 goals this year.

Vancouver in their last game was finally able to win their first game of the year. The downside is the win in the game came against a team that is not that good on the year, the Kings. What does not help the Canucks out either was the fact that in the first two games of the year the Canucks only managed to get 2 goal and that was definitely not going to be impressive for the team when they face a halfway decent team.

Jacob Markstrom is the goalie the Canucks have come to rely on this year in net. He has allowed a total of 7 goals on the year, but has a 2.38 goals against average per game. He has ended up turning away 92.2% of the shots that have been sent towards him on the season.

The Canucks are struggling offensively and the goal scoring breakout against the Kings was more of a fluke than anything else. What else does not help the Canucks out is the fact they are now facing one of the best goalies in the league so far and that will make it harder for the Canucks offense to score as they are shut down again. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia Flyers win 5-1.
