The Philadelphia Flyers end their road trip against the New Jersey Devils tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. It will be the third of four meetings between both teams this season.

New Jersey Devils (21-6-2)

On a three-game winless skid, the Devils met their longest rough patch of the season. After a loss to the Dallas Stars, they’ll be eager to bounce back into the win column versus the Flyers.

Jack Hughes (15G, 19A) scored the game-winner versus the Flyers back on December 3rd, 2022. It is his only point against Philadelphia this season.be a threat on the ice against the Flyers. His 34 points leads New Jersey. In a loss to the New York Islanders, Hughes set an NHL record for the longest single shift in history, 6:02.

Vitek Vanecek (12-2-2, 2.39GAA, 91.2%SV) and Akira Schmid provide stellar goaltending. Schmid occupied the crease versus the Stars on Tuesday, saving 28/30 shots on goal. Tonight, Vanecek will start.

Here’s the tentative lineup for the Devils, per Amanda Stein:

Tatar-Hischier-Zetterlund
Sharangovich-Hughes-Bratt
Wood-Haula-Mercer
Boqvist-McLeod-Holtz

Siegenthaler-Hamilton
Graves-Marino
Smith-Severson

Philadelphia Flyers (9-14-7)

Recently, the Flyers were defeated by the Colorado Avalanche, 3-2. Losers of four consecutive games, this road trip hasn’t treated them well. Despite the losses, John Tortorella continues to find positives.

Cam York (+3, 6HIT, 60.2%CF) scored his first of the 2022-2023 campaign in Colorado. Showcasing his offensive talent while upping the physicality, York certainly impressed after recalled from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at the start of the road trip. He logged the most ice time on defense in the loss to the Avalanche; 21:35.

Carter Hart (8-8-6, 2.84GAA, 90.9%SV) owns the crease. He didn’t have a great game against the Arizona Coyotes, which was the seventh game in a row started (a career-high for consecutive starts.) The backbone of the Flyers, Hart is ready to lock in against an elite NHL team.

Here’s the tentative lineup for the Flyers, per Jordan Hall:

van Riemsdyk-Frost-Tippett
Hayes-N.Cates-Konecny
Sedlak-Laughton-Farabee
Deslauriers-Brown-MacEwen

Provorov-Ristolainen
Sanheim-York
Seeler-Braun
