The Flyers get to continue their visit to Canada in this game. The Flyers are heading not far away from Calgary, the place they played on Tuesday night to face the Oilers.

Travis Konecny is the player who has been able to lead the Flyers in the scoring department with 3 goals and 3 assist on the year so far. Carter Hart has been the starter in all the games so far for the Flyers and he has allowed 1.62 goals a game, but saved 93.8% of the shots sent towards him. The backup goalie and most likely starter in this game is Brian Elliott who has been able to play good in the past and should be able to continue to play good in this game.
Edmonton sits in first place in the Pacific, but the Oilers are coming into this game after losing a game to the Blackhawks. Granted, the loss was one that was a little bit shocking as the Blackhawks have really struggled on both sides of the puck, but also the loss is surprising in the fact that the Blackhawks managed to shut down the prolific Oilers offense to only a single goal.
