1. GAME HEAVY
The Flyers enter the first of back-to-back games tonight and enter a stretch in which they play five games in the next seven days… It is the second set of back-to-backs so far this season after earning a win in the first game of the season, and suffering an overtime loss in the second game… The Flyers have the third-most set of back-to-backs this season (18) with only two other teams having 19 (Columbus & Buffalo).
2. HOT START… AGAIN
For the second straight year, the Montreal Canadiens are off to a hot start, tying for second in the NHL with nine points and outscoring their opponent, 13-4, in the last three games… They are the only team without a loss in regulation… Last season the Habs got off to a hot start with nine-straight victories and a 17-4-2 record before Carey Price went down with a season ending injury on Nov. 25, 2015… They posted a 21-34-4 record without Price in the lineup, eventually missing the playoffs with a 38-38-6 record.
