1. BACK TO THE ICE… FOR BOTH
The Flyers return to action after having a full six days off of games - it is their longest break in game action in the schedule of the season, except for the NHL's break for the Winter Olympics in February… The Rangers have also had time off this past week, taking a four-day break in game action after dropping a 4-0 loss at New Jersey last Saturday - the four-days in between games is also their longest break during the season, except for the Winter Olympics.

4. Player to watch FLYERS: Jakub Voracek - (RW) #93

- Flyers head coach Craig Berube
