Can the Flyers jump on a team at home?

They'll have a good opportunity to Saturday when the Flyers (11-7-4) host the Flames (10-12-3).

• Coming off a big 5-3 win Thursday over the Hurricanes, the Flyers want to build on the momentum at home, where they have a 6-1-3 record.

The Flames also come staggering into the Wells Fargo Center. Calgary has lost six straight games by a combined score of 23-5. During that stretch, the Flames have lost three road games by a combined score of 14-0.

Just a season ago, though, Calgary went 50-25-7 with 107 points, second best in the NHL to only the Lightning.

They've got some of the best skill. We just played Florida two days ago where I thought as far as D jumping up in the play and being a part of the attack, that was a huge challenge. We're getting the same thing from Calgary [Saturday]. There's no doubt that alert and readiness will be two key words [Saturday] right from the start. They're going to be focused and hungry and we have to be the same.

- Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault

• The Flyers will see the return of Scott Laughton, an important depth piece who could help Kevin Hayes (see story). Laughton has been out following a broken right index finger Oct. 26.

Travis Konecny is coming off a three-assist game in which the Flyers' top line shined (see story). The Flyers are 5-0-0 this season when Konecny records a multi-point game.

• Sean Monahan has killed the Flyers with 10 goals in 13 career games against the orange and black.
