After four games on home ice, the Flyers go back on the road again. While this trip is not nearly the same amount of days away from home, there will be plenty of game action, with three games in four days.

It starts on Friday night, as the Flyers take on the Minnesota Wild. It's been a struggle of late for Minnesota, with losses in four of five games in January and in six of their last seven games.

Game time is 8 p.m.
