Game 60: Flyers vs. Lightning

The Philadelphia Flyers (30-22-7) are back home on Tuesday to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning (32-23-5) on Tuesday evening, Game time at the Wells Fargo Center is 7:00 p.m. ET.

The Flyers lost, 2-1, at home against the Rangers on Saturday and 7-6 on the road against the Penguins on Sunday.

At Tuesday's morning skate, the Flyers skated Sean Couturier on the fourth line. Cam Atkinson took about 30 extra minutes of work on the ice after the skate, implying that he is a healthy scratch. Tyson Foerster, who took a puck off the knee on Sunday in Pittsburgh, did not skate on Tuesday but is expected to play in the game.

Travis Konecny remains out of the lineup with an upper body injury (believed by not confirmed to be an oblique muscle strain) suffered last Friday during practice. Jamie Drysdale suffered an upper-body injury (left shoulder) in Sunday's game and is believed to bout on a week-to-week basis but could return this season per a report from Elliotte Friedman.

Samuel Ersson will get the start in goal for the Flyers. Andrei Vasilevskiy will go for Tampa.
