The Flyers look to piece a couple wins together and get back into the Metropolitan Divisions upper echelon but the Penguins will look to do anything they can to keep the Flyers in a wild card spot.
The Metro division has been up for grabs for what seems like months now, with no one team pulling away from the others. Columbus is by far the hottest team right now, winning their last 10 games, but the top four teams are still only separated by just seven points.
Pittsburgh holds a 3-0 lead on head-to-head matchups between these two this season, with two of the three wins coming in regulation and one in overtime.
Here are the details for tonight’s game:
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Date: Sunday, Mar. 25
Location: PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
Time: 12:30 p.m. ET
TV: NBC, TVAS
Live Stream: Fubo.TV
The Flyers have been inconsistent lately, with a 4-5-1 record in their last 10 games. However, they have won three of their last four, and a win in Pittsburgh would make a statement that everything is back to normal with the Flyers. They’ll look to Claude Giroux to continue producing offensively, as he has seven points through the last four games.
Pittsburgh is coming off an overtime loss against the New Jersey Devils on Friday evening. They have been solid lately, with wins in six of their last 10 games. The Penguins look to increase the gap between them and the two teams below them, Columbus and Philadelphia. They could also still catch Washington for the Metro’s top seed.
Evgeni Malkin will look to add to his point total tonight and further his case for the Hart and Rocket Richard Trophies. He currently sits in fourth for points (91) and third for goals (41). Phil Kessel looks to break the 30-goal mark for the first time since his 2013-14 season with the Maple Leafs. Get your hot dogs ready.
Regardless of the final score, the fans are the real winners here, as we are being treated to an early playoff game tonight. Get comfortable and enjoy the game.
