Egor Zamula Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers are coming off an unlikely comeback win against the Devils in the first of four straight against New Jersey. They’ll now play two games in New Jersey before hosting the Devils again on Saturday night.

Tuesday night’s game will be as much about trying to build off Sunday’s win as it is about the NHL debut of Egor Zamula. Zamula had a long look in training camp this year but didn’t make the team. Now, after improving his play in Lehigh Valley recently, Zamula is getting a look.
