The final game of the Flyers three-game road trip comes on Saturday night against the Nashville Predators, a team that has lot four straight games since opening the season with a pair of wins in Czech Republic.
The Flyers got a win over the Predators on March 17 in Claude Giroux's 1,000th game, rallying back to claim the victory. There have been plenty of changes to theFlyers lineup since then, while the Predators look to continue their playoff push.
Flyers captain Claude Giroux will suit up in his 1,000th NHL game, all with the Flyers, as they take on the Nashville Predators on Thursday night. With the trade deadline looming, now just four days away, it could very well be the final time Giroux wears the Flyers uniform.
As free agency begins on Friday at noon, the Flyers have $8.6 million in cap space available, but have to sign Phil Myers and Nolan Patrick as well.
