The Flyers have earned points in eight of nine games played this month, but only two in the last three games as part of a three-game losing streak. Saturday night's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders after leading 3-0 is a tough pill to swallow.

The Flyers get back on the ice on Tuesday night, starting a brief two-game road trip. They face the Florida Panthers, who have won three of their last four games and bring a high-power offensive attack.

Game time is at 7 p.m.

Morgan Frost makes his NHL debut on Tuesday night and all eyes are sure to be on the 20-year-old prospect. He's playing with two pretty good linemates too, Claude Giroux and Travis Konecny, which should give him the opportunity to be productive early in his career.
The skillful center Aleksander Barkov is always an offensive threat, but also one of the best two-way forwards in the game. Barkov has been productive all season, but he's especially started to pick things up in the goal scoring department with three of his six goals this season coming in the last five games.

Carter Hart gets back in goal for the Flyers after suffering a hard-luck loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday. Hart was excellent against Washington and looked solid in Ottawa as well, but allowed two goals in the second period. Even with two defeats in the last week, Hart has brought his other numbers back up with a string of successful starts.

It's been a different start to the season for Sergei Bobrovsky. The elite netminder has struggled to start the season with just seven wins in 17 games played and an uncharacteristically high 3.53 GAA. Despite posting a 22-save shutout against Detroit on Nov. 2, Bobrovsky has allowed at least two goals in every other start this season, including at least three in five of his last seven starts. Bobrovsky does always get up to face his former team. Against the Flyers, he has a 14-3-1 record with a 2.14 GAA and .927 save percentage in 18 games.

Frost joins the lineup on a line with Giroux and Konecny. Matt Niskanen was a game-time decision on Saturday, but played. He took a maintenance day on Monday and figures to be a game-time decision again for Tuesday's game.
