Understandably, there's not a lot of love lost between the teams as they prepare for their Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup (NBCSN/TSN2). The game at Prudential Center in Newark is also the opener of a home-and-home series -- the teams meet again Friday at Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers are still looking for their first win against their division rivals this season.
Here's a statistical look at this Rivalry Night matchup:
Nightmare in New Jersey: The trip up the New Jersey Turnpike used to be an easy win for the Flyers -- they won in seven of 10 visits during the first three seasons after the Colorado Rockies moved to New Jersey for the 1982-83 season. But those days are long gone. Since play resumed after the 2004-05 work stoppage, the Devils are 20-5-1 against the Flyers in New Jersey in the regular season, including a 12-5-1 mark since they moved to Prudential Center in the fall of 2007.
