On Friday night, the Flyers completed a two-goal comeback to knock off the Minnesota Wild in overtime. This will be the first of two meetings between these two teams this season. The Flyers are 3-2-0 in their last five against the Jets and 5-4-1 in their last 10. Carter Hart is 4-0-0 in his career against the Jets with a 1.15 GAA, a .964 save percentage, and one shutout.
