The Penguins (18-17-7) have dominated the Flyers this season, winning the first five meetings so far.
Sidney Crosby saw his five-game points streak (4+6) come to an end against the Florida Panthers on Wednesday. However, he maintains the NHL scoring lead with 65 points (21+44) in 39 games. Washington’s Alexander Ovechkin is second with 61 points (28+33) in 44 games.
Crosby hopes to erupt against the Flyers again. He’s enjoyed success against Philadelphia throughout his career. He recorded his first six-point game of his NHL career the last time the two teams met Dec. 13 in Pittsburgh.
Evgeni Malkin maintains his scoring lead among NHL rookies. He has 41 points (20+21) through 38 games. Los Angeles center Anze Kopitar is second with 39 points (12+27) in 45 games.
The Penguins return home Tuesday to take on the Islanders at 7 p.m.
