OFFICIAL NHL GAME NOTES  I PHI v MTL: A Deeper Look
1. HOME SWEET HOME
The Flyers return home after a six-game, 12-day road trip in which they went 5-1-0… The Flyers have not lost on home-ice in a span of two months - since Nov. 7 - During that streak, the Flyers have gone 9-0-0 and have out-scored their opponent 36-16… The home-winning streak is the longest in over eight years, while the last 10-game streak at home came over 10 years ago during the 2003-04 season (Oct. 27-Dec. 5) which was an 11-game streak… During the streak, the captain leads - Claude Giroux leads the Flyers in goals (7) and points (14) and plus-minus (+12)… 16 different players on the Flyers have scored at least one goal during the streak.

2. SERIES FINALE
Tonight marks the third and final meeting of the year against the Canadiens with the two teams splitting wins on home ice… The Flyers have won the season series against Montreal in each of the last three seasons and, at home, have won the last six games against the Canadiens on home-ice, dating back to the 2009-10 season - they have out-scored the Habs, 22-10 during that six-game streak… Alex Galchenyuk leads Montreal with three points (1g-2a) in the season series this year, while Giroux (1g-1a) and Brayden Schenn & Jakub Voracek (2a) lead the Flyers with two points… The Flyers will be going for their 70th all-time win against Montreal tonight - they have a 69-77-30-4 record against the Canadiens with a 37-34-16-2 mark at home.

3. THIS, THAT & THE OTHER
The Flyers are one of six teams to have six players with 10 or more goals so far this season (BOS, CHI, OTT, PHX & WPG) - No team has seven players with 10 or more goals… The Canadiens are one of three teams (OTT - Karlsson & NSH - Weber) in which their leading scorer is a defenseman as PK Subban has 33 points (7g-26a)… Flyers defensemen have posted 11 goals in the last 15 games… The Canadiens are 21-0-3 in games when they lead after the 2nd period and 19-2-2 when they score the first goal… The Flyers’ penalty kill is perfect (15-for-15) in its last five games… Lars Eller (3-3) and David Desharnais (3-4) are a combined 6-for-7 in shootout attempts this year for Montreal… Jakub Voracek has posted seven multi-point games in his last 12 games.

4. Player to watch FLYERS: Scott Hartnell (LW: 19)
Until he goes a game without a point, Scott Hartnell continues to be the Flyer to watch… Hartnell now has a career-high, eight-game point streak where he has four goals and five assists for nine points… He is the third Flyer to establish a new career-high point streak in the last month (Giroux & Voracek - 9gp)… Hartnell has posted a goal in two straight and three of his last four games… Hartnell is fifth on the team in scoring with 22 points (10g-12a) ranks second on the Flyers in plus-minus (+5)… Against the Canadiens, he has 14 points (4g-10a) in 28 games.

5. Player to watch CANADIENS: Max Pacioretty (LW: 67)
Pacioretty has four goals and seven points in his last four games, including a four-point night at Dallas on Jan. 2… He leads the Canadiens with 19 goals, including power-play goals (6) and game-winning-goals (5)… He ranks third with 26 points in 35 games this season… Against the Flyers, he averages a point-per game with three goals and nine assists for 12 points in 12 career games, but is scoreless in his only game against the Flyers  this season… Pacioretty was named to Team USA for the Winter Olympics on Jan. 1

QUOTABLE
"I thought Giroux played an outstanding game - the whole game, from start to finish. He was physical, he competed and did everything possible out there."
- Craig Berube on last night's game
