The Flyers enter this cross-state affair on a 2-game skid and all but out of the playoff picture down 14 points with 7 games to go. Philly has been without tendy Carter Hart due to a lower-body injury over the past week and recalled Sunday's likely starter, Samuel Ersson, on an emergency basis.
Pittsburgh dropped a 4-3 heartbreaker to the Boston Bruins in the final 3 minutes Saturday. The Pens are just 3-7-0 in the last 10 and have fallen a point behind Florida for the final Wild-Card spot. They'll look to make a statement Sunday as 4 of their last 6 are against non-playoff teams.
