Vancouver hosts Philadelphia on Thursday night at Rogers Arena. The Flyers finally ended a long 10-game losing streak by taking down Calgary on the road. The Canucks have been victorious in three straight games. They were part of Philadelphia’s torment in their long losing streak on November 21st, beating them 5-2.

Manning lands on injured reserve after Calgary win

It was tumultuous, but Philadelphia’s losing ways finally hit the skids after a great second period lifted them to a 5-2 victory. After falling 1-0 in the first period, they hit a tying shot just one minute later and they opened up the second period with three consecutive goals to take a 4-goal lead. Two goals were scored by Scott Laughton, bringing his total to four goals total and eight points on the season.

Defender Brandon Manning has landed on the injured reserve with an undisclosed injury after the win over Calgary. He didn’t have a point in the game, and the latest point he registered was an assist against Pittsburgh on November 27th. He has six points on the season. Goaltender Brian Elliott (7-6-6) is expected to make the start after grabbing the win in Calgary. He gave up just two goals and faced 45 total shot attempts.

Horvat listed as questionable for the next game

Vancouver’s been feeling great with three straight wins and have rolled in the first two games at home in this three-game set. They have outscored opponents 10-4 in the winning streak and the latest was a 3-0 shutout against Carolina. They had just 22 shots on goal in the contest and were outshot 12-3 in the first period, but they were efficient enough to get the job done.

Defender Derrick Pouliot (10 pts) had a night to remember with a goal and two assists in the victory. His last point came against Pittsburgh with a goal back in November 22nd. Goaltender Jacob Markstrom (8-8-3) picked up his first shutout of the season and saved 30 shots. Center Bo Horvat (20 pts) is questionable with an undisclosed injury for the next game. He’s had four points (2 goals, 2 assists) in his last six games.

Trends

Flyers are:

  • 5-16 in their last 21 games overall
  • 1-6 in their last 7 against Western Conference

Canucks are:

  • Not available

Both teams haven’t been thriving with a lot of success this season. Even though Philadelphia has won 8 of their last 11 games in Vancouver, their poor traction as of late could make this pretty tough to obtain.
