Tight affairs have become the norm for the Philadelphia Flyers, who look to extend their winning streak to four games when they visit the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. Each of Philadelphia’s last six contests have been decided by one goal, with the club winning four overall and three in a row – including Thursday’s shootout triumph over the Islanders in New York.

Michael Raffl returned to the lineup Thursday after missing eight games with an upper-body injury but was kept off the scoresheet. Defenseman Andrew MacDonald sat out the victory and is expected to be sidelined for approximately one week with a lower-body injury. Scott Laughton, who has yet to make his season debut, was assigned to Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League for conditioning.

Montreal’s season-opening point streak ended with a thud as the team surrendered 10 goals for the first time since Dec. 13, 1992, when it suffered a 10-5 setback against the New York Rangers.Forward Torrey Mitchell leads the Canadiens with five goals but has yet to record an assist.

The Flyers have been an offensive force in the second period this season, entering Saturday’s action with a league-best 21 goals in the session.

Montreal has had 14 players score at least one goal and 19 register a point this campaign.

Philadelphia has overcome a deficit in five of its six victories this season.
