FLYERS (8-7-2) at WILD (7-7-2)
8 p.m. ET; FS-N, NBCSP+, NHL.TV
The Minnesota Wild will go for a third straight win when they play the second game of a home-and-home series against the Philadelphia Flyers at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday. The Wild defeated the Flyers 1-0 on Saturday.
Forward Jason Zucker has scored Minnesota's past six goals to set a Wild record. The NHL record for consecutive goals is seven shared by Cy Denneny with the Ottawa Senators from Feb. 28-March 7, 1921 and Brian Noonan for the Chicago Blackhawks from Dec. 27-29, 1991, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
The Flyers are 2-2-2 in their past six games. They've been shut out four times this season, most in the NHL.
Players to watch
Forward Sean Couturier has 12 points (six goals, six assists) in his past nine games. He leads the Flyers in goals (10), and is third in points (19) behind Jakub Voracek (21) and Claude Giroux (20).
Goalie Devan Dubnyk will make his seventh consecutive start for Minnesota. He's made 73 saves in back-to-back shutouts and has not allowed a goal in 135:05 since the third period of a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov.8.
They said it
"We played a hard-fought game [on Saturday]. In a 1-0 game, you don't want to be on the losing end of it but I think we played good. We could have done some things different…We just have to get to the blue paint and I think that's what we're going to do tonight." -- Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere
"You just got to take it as another game. I know it's the cliché answer but … that's really how you get into a roll in the season is forgetting about previous games, wins and losses, and treat this game the same way we treated the game going into Philly. …This is an opponent that's got a lot of offensive skill and it's going to be a challenge for us." -- Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk
