Both Colorado and the Flyers continue to push for a playoff spot when the two teams meet on Thursday night in Colorado.
The Flyers currently sit in the 2nd wild card spot in the East, while the Avalanche are one spot back of a playoff position.
Philadelphia has done one thing right lately, not letting losses turn into losing streaks.
The Flyers will look to avenge a loss with a win for the 6th straight time as they get set to take on Colorado here.
With their recent surge, the Flyers now sit in the 2nd Wild Card spot, ahead of Detroit by percentage points and just 4 points back of the Islanders. The Flyers picked up a giant win in Brooklyn 2 games ago, as they continue to put the pressure on.
Philadelphia has been very respectable on the road this season, as they have gone 16-14-2-4 on the year. This team has relied heavily on G Steve Mason, who has turned away 74 of 77 shots over the past two road games.
Across the ways in the Western Conference, the Colorado Avalanche continue their surge toward the postseason.
Right now, the Avalanche sit 3rd in the Wild Card race, 1 point behind Minnesota for that 2nd spot.
The Avs have won 3 straight games and they are being led by the captain, Gabriel Landeskog, who has stepped up after some key injuries have taken place. Colorado has also been getting production from G Semyon Varlamov.
Varlamov has recorded a 4-1-0 record over the past 5 outings with a GAA of just 1.59. The Avs head coach, Patrick Roy, has already told Varlamov he will start in both games against Phili and then the crucial one against Minnesota.
