Game Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers 11/25/2022 – Lines, how to watch

When: 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time

how to watch– Game broadcast nationally on TNT, Sportsnet and TVA in Canada, Sling TV

opponent’s track: On November 8, the Flyers defeated the St. Louis Blues to move to 7-3-2 on the season. There was a lot of smoke and mirrors with poor process, great goalkeeping attention and hot shots and it has gone downhill ever since. Philadelphia is 0-5-3 since then, including recent losses to Boston, Montreal (shootout), Calgary and Washington (overtime) in the past week.

pens way ahead: The long “road” for road games that stand out on the schedule is about to break for the Pens after tonight. Pittsburgh returns home for the next five games and seven of the next eight. Toronto, Carolina, Vegas, St. Louis and Columbus will be the teams arriving in Pittsburgh over the next few days, starting with the Maple Leafs tomorrow night.

season series: Tonight is the first of only three PIT/PHI games this season. And if you like this game you better enjoy it because it won’t be back for a while. The Pens and Flyers don’t meet again until March 11 when the Flyers come to the ‘Burgh and then a final game in Pittsburgh between the two occurs on April 2.

—There’s probably more sideline and IR talent than in the Flyers’ lineup tonight. Heart just breaks for them. But it’s hard to compete in the NHL with so many top players who can’t

—Where would the Flyers be without Carter Hart this season? Only four players have five or more goals in the season. Hart has had a checkered career up to this point and could be more of a solution than a problem if Philly can build the rest of the team around him.

—Only four more seasons after this one for Rasmus Ristolainen. The odds of it going that far have to be pretty low.

If you can’t be good, at least cut it

The Flyers are tied for first in the NHL with 13 fights this season, so at least they’re the best at something. (The Pens, by the way, have one fight in the year, and it was barely memorable with Bryan Rust. I’m not even sure any punches were thrown.)

Still, now that he’s on an eight-game losing streak with the season spiraling out of control, John Tortorella should be more forceful against the team he loves to hate, the Pens.

face to face confrontation

“The Flyers, wow. They are very bad at almost everything, plus Carter Hart has been in charge of running them for a while. Who knows how long it could go on, but that will be the matchup to watch in this game.

And now the Feathers…
