In one of the more interesting matchups of the evening, the Philadelphia Flyers are set to take on the San Jose Sharks. East meets west, coming in hot after the 2014 Winter Olympic break.
These two teams started off the 2013-14 NHL season in very different ways. For San Jose, it didn’t seem like they could lose through the first two months of the season. They rode that hot streak to the top of the Pacific Division, but couldn’t quite keep the magic going as the injuries piled up.
They’re still at the 80-point mark, so it’s not like they’ve been bad by any stretch. Their path just stands in stark contrast to what the Flyers have done this year. Philadelphia was one of the worst teams in the early going, but are in the weak Metropolitan Division.
There, the 66 points they’ve put up is good for third place in the Division. What will happen when one of the best teams from the NHL’s strongest division clashes with a squad from the weakest? Tune in to find out. Here’s how:
