Flyers vs. Rangers: Live stream, storylines, game time and more originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com

Four games remain with no hope for the playoffs.

That string starts Sunday when the Flyers (37-33-8) host the Rangers (30-34-13).

While the games don't have meaning for postseason purposes, there are still reasons to watch.

Let's get into that and more with the essentials:

When: 12:30 p.m. ET
Where: Wells Fargo Center
Broadcast: NBC
Live stream: NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and the NBC Sports MyTeams app

• The Flyers experienced a lot of turmoil in 2018-19, but at least Carter Hart came up and proved he is the team's future in net.

In 28 starts, Hart has gone 16-11-1 with a 2.76 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. He has wins over the Bruins (twice), Maple Leafs, Jets, Penguins and Predators - all top-10 teams this season.

That is exciting and seeing the 20-year-old continue his development is worth watching, starting with Sunday's game.

• The young defense is taking shape.

Samuel Morin won't play Sunday, but he'll see more audition time over the final three games.

Look at the ages of the key pieces to the Flyers' future on the blue line:

Shayne Gostisbehere: 25
Robert Hagg: 24
Samuel Morin: 23
Philippe Myers: 22
Ivan Provorov: 22
Travis Sanheim: 22

Myers has been fun to watch. Gostisbehere's elusiveness is a treat for fans that like offense. Provorov eats minutes. Sanheim has been a major positive in his first full season.

All good stuff and we'll see more of it coming up.

Sean Couturier is always worth watching because he does so much. He'll probably be pretty fired up Sunday after receiving a confounding game misconduct Saturday.

Given the fact that he's in the midst of another career year and could reach 35 goals, he's a big reason to watch.

And a reminder: he's only 26, which is hard to believe.
