Flyers look for revenge vs. Maple Leafs
One week after losing to the Maple Leafs in Philadelphia, the Flyers will try to get even in Toronto.

The Leafs and Flyers meet for the second consecutive Thursday, this time at the Air Canada Centre, in one of seven games on the NHL schedule. The Leafs won 3-2 a week earlier, but are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss on Long Island two nights earlier. The loss to the Leafs was the second of four in a row for the Flyers, who ended their slide by beating Edmonton 4-1 at home on Tuesday.

The Flyers and Leafs start at 7 p.m. ET, as do the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Both teams are coming off road losses on Tuesday -- Boston fell 4-1 at Montreal, while the Sabres lost 3-1 at Pittsburgh.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
