The Flyers were not able to string together back-to-back shootout wins over the weekend, but did get three points out of four, bouncing back from two lopsided efforts against the Islanders and Penguins. It's a step in the right direction for a team that needs to get it going, especially with a busy month ahead against a number of Eastern Conference opponents.

The Carolina Hurricanes come to town on Tuesday night, and after a 5-0-0 start to their season, have since cooled with a 4-4-1 record in the last nine games.

Game time is at 7 p.m.

Travis Konecny has remained at the top of the Flyers point leaders all season as one of the most consistent forwards on the team. His offensive skills have already been on display, and he'll be a focus for another reason on Tuesday, as he will take face-offs on the line with Sean Couturier battling a shoulder strain.
Sebastian Aho is starting to heat up. He scored two goals and had a three-point game against Detroit on Friday and seven of his 10 points on the season have come in the last five games. Against the Flyers, Aho has always been a threat, with six goals and 15 points in 13 career games.

Brian Elliott was in for six of the seven goals allowed against the Penguins on Tuesday before being pulled after the second period. Elliott had been playing very well up to that point with wins in three straight starts. He will get the start in the back-end of this back-to-back.

It's been tough to beat Petr Mrazek this season. The former Flyers netminder has seven wins on the season in nine games, including three straight wins entering Tuesday. In that stretch, he has allowed four goals on 93 shots, a .957 save percentage.
