After losing the first three games of the shortened NHL season, the Philadelphia Flyers will attempt to snap their losing streak at home Thursday night against the New York Rangers.
Thursday night's meeting is the first of five against the Rangers.
As the Flyers look to avoid their first 0-4 start in franchise history, their lineup will be without both Brayden Schenn and Scott Hartnell. Schenn was given a one-game suspension on Wednesday, while Hartnell will be out indefinitely due to an injury to his left foot.
FOX 29's Howard Eskin reports Hartnell could be out for as long as a month.
Keep the rain gear and jackets handy for your Friday evening out. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities. Rain will change to a wintry mix tonight in the Poconos with a light slushy accumulation overnight.
We receive a dry break on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. A challenging trip to and from the Linc for the Eagles game!
