The Flyers five-game winning streak came to an end on Thursday night in a 3-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Following the loss, the message was about a solid game played on the ice and maintaining the level of gameplay for the next game to start a new streak.

This is the new sense of accountability the Flyers have. They feel like there is a need to stop the bleeding before this snowballs into a losing streak. The Flyers get the chance to get back in the win column when they face the Ottawa Senators on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.

Game time is at 1 p.m.

Claude Giroux was silenced in Thursday's game like most of his teammates, but his two early penalties also cut his ice time down a bit. Against Toronto two games ago, Giroux was one of the best players on the ice for the Flyers, scored the game-winning goal and had five shots.
Anthony Duclair has found a home in the Senators top six. He may have just two points in the last five games, but he's a player who is striving to find his place in an NHL lineup and establishing his career.

Carter Hart continued his great play of late in his last start, stopped 27 of 28 shots by the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 6-1 win that was a lot closer than the score indicates. Hart allowed two goals on just 19 shots in a loss to the Senators.

Craig Anderson returned to the Senators lineup after a week on the injured list and played excellent in Edmonton, making 24 saves in a win. That was Anderson's first start since Nov. 25.

Lineup Notes

Alain Vigneault said after Friday's practice that the Flyers would likely go back to the usual 12-forward, six defensemen lineup. That would mean Mikhail Vorobyev comes back into the lineup. Robert Hagg played the fewest minutes in the seven-defensemen rotation on Thursday, so he could be the one who exits the lineup.
