The Flyers return home turned unpleasant as they suffered a fourth straight loss, falling to the 1-7-1 Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Monday's game provides another chance to right the ship, and there will be two new faces in the lineup trying to provide a spark. 19-year-old Joel Farabee makes his NHL debut and Mikhail Vorobyev joins the lineup as well.

It is sure to be a tough test for the Flyers, as they face the Vegas Golden Knights, off to a 6-3-0 start and coming off a shutout win in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Game time is at 7 p.m.

All eyes will be on Joel Farabee in his NHL debut on Monday. Farabee impressed in the preseason, but was unable to score. Once he went down to the AHL to start the season, he opened his professional career with goals in his first three games and a four-game points streak. Now he gets his chance in the NHL and even more opportunities could open up if he is able to be a play-driver and produce.
Mark Stone opened the season with four multi-point games in the team's first five. He is also currently on a five-game points streak. In eight of the nine games for Vegas this season, Stone has factored into the scoring in some way. His addition to the lineup, starting the previous season, has made an already dangerous group even more lethal.

Brian Elliott gets the start in goal for the Flyers, his first at home, after getting his first start of the season last week in Calgary and taking over in relief of Carter Hart in Edmonton. Hart has allowed seven goals on 29 shots over the last two games, so this could be a good chance for Elliott to provide some relief.

Oscar Dansk was the first goalie off the ice for Vegas at Monday's morning skate, so he will make his first start of the season. Dansk made three starts and appeared in four games for Vegas in the 2017-18 season, posting a 3-0-0 record, a 1.78 GAA and .946 save percentage.
