Scouting Report:

The Panthers had left home before this trip with just one road win on the season. But then they did what they did -- which included knocking off two of the elite goalies in the league in Montreal's Carey Price and New York's Henrik Lundqvist. Florida now has 21 points after 19 games. At this point last season, the Panthers had just 19 points, and they went on to win the Atlantic Division. Meanwhile, the Flyers are just 3-4-1 on the road this season and are coming off a 3-0 home loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. Philadelphia has had trouble in on the Panthers' home ice, losing its past three BB&T Center matchups. (Yahoo! Sports)
