Flyers-Stars highlights Wednesday's NHL action
The Philadelphia Flyers will face the improved Dallas Stars in one of six games on Wednesday's NHL schedule.
The Philadelphia Flyers haven't lost three games in a row all season, and they have no intention of starting now. But to avoid their first three-game slide, they'll have to beat the improved Dallas Stars in one of six games on Wednesday's NHL schedule.

The Flyers come to Dallas after a 3-2 shootout loss in Colorado on Monday night, the same night the Stars returned home from a five-game trip and beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3.

The game can be seen on VERSUS in the United States and TSN2 in Canada, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Wednesday's action begins a half-hour earlier when the Phoenix Coyotes visit Carolina. The Coyotes won 2-1 in Florida on Tuesday, while the Hurricanes have been off since a 3-2 overtime loss to the same Panthers on Sunday.

Also at 7:30, Chicago returns home after a 3-2 loss in Pittsburgh on Tuesday to host Montreal. The Canadiens have lost both games under interim coach Randy Cunneyworth, including a 3-2 defeat at Boston on Monday. That game can be seen in Canada on RDS and TSN.

At 9:30 p.m. ET, St. Louis visits Colorado. The Blues have been off since beating Columbus 6-4 on Sunday.

A half-hour later, two of the best teams in the Western Conference meet when Detroit visits Vancouver. Both teams won on Monday -- the Wings were 3-2 winners in Edmonton, while the Canucks routed the visiting Minnesota Wild 4-0. That game can also be seen in Canada on TSN.

In the final game of the evening, Tampa Bay starts a quick West Coast trip with a visit to San Jose. Both teams have been off since 3-2 wins on Saturday -- the Lightning won at Columbus, while the Sharks beat Edmonton at home.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
