Carter Hart got another home win on Saturday against the Jets, making 27 saves in the process. He'll be back in net looking for a much better result than his first game against the Sharks back in December.

Aaron Dell gets the start for the Sharks after allowing three goals on 33 shots in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday. Dell has been the more consistent goalie for the Sharks, though they have had a lot of struggles in that area this season. Dell has a 3-0-1 record with a 1.24 GAA in four career starts against the Flyers, including one shutout.
