Who’s ready for another loss, but this time in the morning?!

The Ducks are staring down the barrel of their seventh straight loss when they take on the Philadelphia Flyers for a matinee game.

There’s not much hope for this game, as Anaheim is coming off being shut out by the worst defensive team in hockey, while Philadelphia is arguably the hottest team in the NHL, currently riding a nine game point streak.

Young goalie protege Carter Hart has brought long-awaited stabilization to the goaltending position, something the Flyers haven’t had in years. At one point considered dead in the water, the intro of 20-year-old Hart has served as a catalyst for the boys of Broad Street to roar back into the playoff conversation.

With John Gibson suffering a head injury after Jaycob Megna collided into him, Kevin Boyle has been recalled from San Diego to back up Chad Johnson, who will be the likely starter for Anaheim.
