Devils week continues for the Philadelphia Flyers! They head to New Jersey Tuesday night.

Here’s what to watch:

Devils week continues

The Flyers and Devils will be facing off all week. For the first time in the Flyers’ regular season history, there will be four straight games against the same team. Tonight’s game is the second of the four and the fifth game of the eight-game season series between the teams.

The teams will play each other at the Prudential Center again on Thursday and then return to the Wells Fargo Center on May 1. The season series will conclude in Philadelphia on May 10, the final game of the season for both teams.

The Flyers are 3-1-0 against the Devils this season. Philadelphia earned 5-3 and 3-1 victories at the Prudential Center on January 26 and 28. The Devils skated to a 4-3 win at the Wells Fargo Center on March 23 as a late rally by the Flyers fell short. On April 25, two late goals by Claude Giroux rescued the Flyers from a regulation loss before the team prevailed 4-3 (3-2) in a shootout.

NHL debut

Rookie defenseman Egor Zamula will make his NHL debut for the Flyers in Tuesday’s game. He will be paired with Travis Sanheim. Samuel Morin will exit the lineup.
