The Flyers first game of 2020 also marks the halfway point of the regular season. While it has been a fairly successful one so far, the current six-game road trip has tested the Flyers.

The Flyers have a 1-2-0 record on the six-game road trip so far, and that includes two rather lackluster losses in San Jose and Los Angeles. The road trip continues with a stop against the Vegas Golden Knights, as the Flyers look to get back into the win column.

Game time is at 10 p.m.

Sean Couturier did score a goal in Sunday's win in Anaheim, but has struggled to put up points over recent games with just two over the last five games after a string of five points in three games.
Mark Stone is on a four-game points streak where he has scored three goals and has six points. In the month of December, there were only four games where Stone did not record a point. Stone has at least one point in 10 of the last 11 games, including six multi-point games.

Carter Hart struggled in San Jose, but looked pretty good in two periods in Los Angeles in relief of Brian Elliott on Tuesday. He gets back in net for the start in Vegas on Thursday night.

Marc-Andre Fleury had a rough outing on Dec. 23, allowing seven goals in a loss to Colorado, but has since bounced back with back-to-back wins. In his last against Anaheim, Fleury stopped 26 of 28 shots.
