The Flyers earned a win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday night in large part to Carter Hart. Hart is back in goal on Thursday night, and goes against a netminder that he is largely compared to in both style and career path.

Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens pay a visit to Wells Fargo Center as the Flyers look to continue a recent streak of three straight games with points.

Game time is at 7 p.m.

Since making the move to the top line, Joel Farabee has been heating up. He scored his first NHL goal last Friday and then added his second on Tuesday. And there are plenty of signs that more could be on the way soon.
Brendan Gallagher is off to another good start this season. It's no secret how much success he has had against the Flyers. Gallagher has scored 10 goals and 16 points in 20 career games against the Flyers.

Hart stole the show on Tuesday, making 33 saves in the win over Carolina. That easily earned him another start on Thursday night. Since entering the game in relief in Pittsburgh on Oct. 29, Hart has stopped 64 of 69 shots faced, a .928 save percentage.

Price has been off to a solid start this season and has especially been on a roll lately. He has won three of his last four starts, allowing six goals on 103 shots in the three games prior to Montreal's win over Boston on Tuesday. In that win, Price stopped 21 of 25 shots.
