Game 22 Preview: Flyers vs. Lightning

Alain Vigneault's Philadelphia Flyers (8-9-4) will host Jon Cooper's two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning (14-5-4) on Sunday evening. Game time at the Wells Fargo Center is 6:00 p.m. ET (NBCSP, 97.5 The Fanatic).

This is the third and final meeting of the regular season series between the teams for 2021-22. The Flyers are 0-1-1 to date against the Lightning.

The Flyers enter this game needing to end a seven-game winless skid (0-5-2) that started with the Nov. 18 shootout loss to the Lightning. On Wednesday of this week, the Flyers suffered a 4-1 road loss to the New York Rangers. Morgan Frost tallied the lone Philadelphia goal. Tampa enters the game having won back-to-back contests including a 3-2 overtime win in Boston on Friday evening. Stamkos scored the winning goal in overtime. Overall, the Lightning have points in eight of their last 10 games (7-2-1).
