PHILADELPHIA -- Goalie Michal Neuvirth will make his fifth straight start for the Philadelphia Flyers as they try to extend their winning streak to four games when they face Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday.

It will be the first time McDavid, the No, 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, plays against the Flyers since Nov. 3, when he sustained a broken left clavicle after he fell into the boards. He missed nearly three months.
