After a thrilling comeback win over the Bruins capped off a 2-1-0 stretch at home, it's back on the road for the Flyers, where they will be put to the test once again.

The Flyers faced both the Capitals and Bruins on home ice, and at the time, each was at least in a tie for the most points in the NHL. Their only remaining road game before the All-Star break and bye week is also against a team tied for the most points in the standings. The defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues await in a Wednesday night matchup.

Game time is 8 p.m.

Sean Couturier scored on Monday to snap a four-game goalless drought and posted a three-point game to move into a tie for the team lead in points. With six points over his last five games, Couturier has stepped up in a big way lately and will need to again on the road against the West's best team.
Brayden Schenn has piled up plenty of points over the last few games, but all of them have been assists. He has not scored since a two-goal game on Dec. 23, a nine-game goalless drought, while posting nine assists in that time. The former Flyer sure seems due, and that doesn't bode well for the Flyers.

Brian Elliott gets the start on Wednesday night against his former team. Elliott suffered the loss in his last start in Carolina on Jan. 7, making 28 saves on 33 shots.

Jordan Binnington picked up where he left off a year ago. He's obviously come such a long way since his first NHL win and shutout in Philadelphia on Jan. 7 last year. Aside from a disastrous night against Colorado, where he allowed seven goals on 41 shots, Binnington has wins in nine of his last 10 starts.

Flyers Projected Lineup

Injuries: Carter Hart (lower right abdominal, 2-to-3 weeks), Shayne Gostisbehere (knee, 3 weeks), Justin Braun (groin, out until All-Star break), Nolan Patrick (migrane disorder, out indefinitely), Oskar Lindblom (Ewing's sarcoma, out for season)

Lineup Notes

With the news of Carter Hart's injury, Alex Lyon has been called up to fill in as the backup. To make room for Lyon on the roster, the Flyers sent down Joel Farabee for Wednesday's game and placed Chris Stewart on waivers. Stewart will play on Wednesday before Farabee likely rejoins the team on Thursday.

Injuries: Vladimir Tarasenko, Sammy Blais, Colton Parayko
