Both the Flyers and Rangers entered Friday's game on hot streak, but the Flyers were the team that was able to extend their winning streak, matching a season high with five straight victories.

They have the chance to extend that streak to six games on Sunday afternoon, as they once again face the Rangers, this time on the road.

Game time is 12 p.m.

Claude Giroux has really been stringing together the points lately. Giroux had two goals in Friday's win and has scored six goals and added eight assists in the last 10 games. Look for the Flyers captain to be a key presence once again.
The Rangers have scored three goals in the two games against the Flyers this season and Jesper Fast has two of them. Fast has four goals in his last five games after going 14 straight games without a goal.

Carter Hart made 26 saves in Friday's win and will be back in the net again on Sunday. Hart has won four straight starts, all at home, and has wins in both starts against the Rangers this season.

It has been nearly a month since Henrik Lundqvist got a start in goal, but he will be in for the game on Sunday against the Flyers. Lundqvist was in goal and allowed five goals on 30 shots in a loss to the Flyers on Dec. 23. He has lost three of his previous four starts.

Lineup Notes

Joel Farabee was called up late on Saturday and the reasoning behind that is due to an illness that is affecting Sean Couturier. Couturier is a game-time decision, so Farabee could slot in if he is not able to play.
