Flyers at Jets, Game 51: Lines, Notes & How to Watch



Kevin Hayes, Philadelphia Flyers

There are two ways to look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent action.

Glass half full: The Flyers have points in three of their last four games.

Glass half empty: The Flyers have lost three straight.

Philly (20-21-9) will play its final game before the All-Star break when it meets the Jets (31-18-1) in Winnipeg on Saturday night.

The Flyers need a win to feel good about themselves going into the break. After Saturday, they don’t play again until Feb. 6 against the visiting New York Islanders.

Flyers’ expected lineup

Van Riemsdyk-Frost-Tippett



Deslauriers-Brown-coach’s choice.







Hart (14-14-8, 2.97, .908).

Jets’ expected lineup










Hellebuyck (23-14-1, 2.40, .924).


RW Zack MacEwen will miss about five weeks because of surgery to repair a fractured jaw. … Wade Allison (lower-body injury) will also be out tonight. … Hayes scored two goals in last Sunday’s 5-3 home loss to goalie David Rittich and Winnipeg. … In his career against the Jets, Hart is 3-0 with  a 1.50 GAA and .950 save percentage. … Scheifele has 18 points (5-13) in 15 career games against the Philadelphia Flyers. … The Flyers lead the NHL in hits (1,439) and are second in blocked shots (870). … Winnipeg is averaging 3.24 goals per game, while the Flyers are scoring at a 2.76 clip. … The Jets have a big advantage in special teams. Winnipeg has a strong penalty kill (83.6%, third in NHL) and power play (23.6%, 13th); the  Flyers are 19th on the PK (76.9%) and 30th on the PP (16.2%). … Philly is 6-2-2 in its last 10 games against Western Conference opponents. …  Konecny (24 goals, 49 points) has his first three-game pointless streak of the season.
