The Flyers will try to avenge a recent loss when they play the Kraken on Thursday in Seattle.

In their last game, the Flyers (22-23-10) dropped a 4-3 decision Sunday to the second-year Kraken.

Balanced scoring has been Seattle’s calling card. The Kraken (30-18-6) and Vegas are the only NHL teams with 10 players who have scored at least 10 goals.

The Flyers have five such players.

Seattle is fifth in the NHL in goals scored per game (3.46), while the Flyers are 27th (2.69 per game).
