THREE THINGS TO WATCH
1. Fast to neglect
The Flyers felt slighted by two disallowed objectives in Thursday's loss in opposition to the Ottawa Senators. Final time they'd a sport like that, the place they fell behind Three-Zero and got here again solely to lose on a controversial name, they took their frustrations out on the Washington Capitals. 
You understand what, let’s make it a rallying cry as an alternative of sit and cry about it,” normal supervisor Ron Hextall stated. “Crying about one thing doesn’t do you any good.”
2. After the highest pair
After a fast feeling-out course of, the Flyers' high pair of Shayne Gostisbehere and Ivan Provorov settled in properly. It is a fluid state of affairs who performs which aspect, however they appeared to have their head on a swivel to determine it out. 
It wasn't so seamless for the pairs of Brandon Manning with Radko Gudas or Travis Sanheim with Robert Hagg. They could want extra time to get issues snug.
Three. Goalie matchup
Brian Elliott will probably get the nod in aim. He has a 6-6-1 document in 15 profession video games in opposition to the Maple Leafs with a 2.73 goals-against common and .906 save proportion. He'll most likely face Frederik Andersen between the pipes for the leafs. Andersen has an ideal 6-Zero-Zero document in opposition to the Flyers with a 2.60 goals-against common and .923 save proportion.
