Suddenly losers of two straight, the Philadelphia Flyers (25-16-6) close out their three-game homestand when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning (24-18-5) at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m. This is the first of three meetings between these two teams this season; all three games will likely have significant ramifications on the Eastern Conference standings. The Flyers are 1-4-0 in their last five against the Lightning and just 1-7-2 in their last 10.

The Flyers will hold a morning skate at 10:30 a.m. at the Flyers Training Center in Voorhees, NJ, prior to their 7 p.m. puck drop against the Lightning.
