Preview 8:30 AM EDT – Flyers vs Jets
by Bill Meltzer, PhilaPhans’ Contributor (Bill Meltzer-HockeyBuzz)

Looking for their fifth straight win, the Philadelphia Flyers (17-17-3) will be in action today for the third time in four days when they visit the Winnipeg Jets (18-19-2) in an afternoon showdown. The game starts at 3 p.m. and will be televised locally on CSN Philadelphia and across Canada on the CBC.

This is the third and final meeting between the teams this season and the second in Winnipeg. On Feb. 12, a tired-legged Flyers team gritted out a 3-2 road win in Winnipeg behind stellar goaltending by Ilya Bryzgalov and goals by Brayden Schenn, Kimmo Timonen and Tye McGinn. Eleven days later, the Flyers scored three times on the power play to battle back from deficits of 1-0 and 3-1 to grab a 5-3 win on home ice. Brayden Schenn tallied a pair of goals, and Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, and Zac Rinaldo (empty net goal) scored once apiece.

The Flyers have managed their four-game winning streak despite a wave of injuries that have depleted the lineup. The team has lost defensemen Braydon Coburn (separated left shoulder) and Andrej Meszaros (torn left rotator cuff) for the season, and has been without Nicklas Grossmann (upper body injury) for the last two weeks. Up front, they are missing Danny Briere (concussion, out indefinitely), Max Talbot (broken left leg, out for the season) and Zac Rinaldo (high ankle sprain, will miss about two weeks).

Flyers-Jets Preview
by Taylor Bechtold (STATS Writer) for The Associated Press

Playing their best hockey of the season just when it looked like their postseason hopes were all but dashed, the streaking Philadelphia Flyers are now making a push for a playoff spot. The Winnipeg Jets are headed the other direction, as they’re falling out of contention after a hot streak that had them eyeing a division title.

Philadelphia (17-17-3) is in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, but continued its perfectly timed roll with a 5-3 victory at Toronto on Thursday. The Flyers are just a few points out of playoff position with 11 games remaining.

The Jets (18-19-2) have been outscored 20-6 in the past five games, falling 4-1 to Montreal on Thursday. Winnipeg, 2-7-0 in its past nine, led the Southeast Division by six points before its losing streak dropped it into 10th place in the East.

According to a report, the Flyers have convinced Minnesota defenseman Mark Alt - a former second-round pick - to leave the Golden Gophers after his junior season.

"Alt was a two-sport star in high school, as he led Cretin-Derham to a state title as a quarterback in football. The son of former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Jon Alt, he was entertaining offers to play football in college until late in the spring, when he committed to playing hockey at the University of Minnesota. Like his father, Alt is a tall man but despite his height is a fluid skater who has good speed and agility. Having not yet played at a higher level of hockey, he is still raw in terms of tactical play and positioning but is a strong two-way player according to scouts who've seen him play."


6ft3 and shoots right handed.
