The Philadelphia Flyers still have a snowball's chance of making the Stanley Cup playoffs, and until it completely melts they're going to keep believing it can happen.

The Devils look to snap their 10-game losing streak as they host the Flyers at the Prudential Center tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

According to STATS:

  • The Devils have beaten Philadelphia twice this season by a combined margin of 8-1. New Jersey has thus improved to 13-3-3 in the series since the beginning of 2013-14, during which time the Devils have outscored the Flyers at even strength, 42-22.
  • The Flyers ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over the Penguins on Wednesday which matched Philadelphia's largest margin of victory this season. It was the Flyers' fourth team shutout of 2016-17.
  • The Devils' game against Winnipeg on Tuesday was postponed due to Winter Storm Stella and will be made up on March 28. The storm denied New Jersey an opportunity to end its 10-game losing streak (0-8-2), which is tied for the second-longest skid in franchise history (14 straight losses by the Kansas City Scouts in 1975-76).
