The Flyers will be trying to rebound from Thursday's 5-3 loss to the powerful Ducks. The Flyers played relatively well, but a couple of mistakes turned into Anaheim goals, sending them to their fifth loss in the last six games.
"We played a good game; it was probably the hardest that we battled all year," Simmonds said.
"We've got to make it a cleaner game," said coach Craig Berube, whose team allowed too much traffic in front of goalie Steve Mason, and surrendered its ninth shorthanded goal, which is tied for the most in the NHL.
Los Angeles, which is a physical team like the Ducks, is also scuffling. The Kings have lost seven of their last eight games and will be a desperate, dangerous team.
"We have to focus on our game, play the way we want to play, and if we do that, we'll have a chance to win," center Claude Giroux said.
In his first NHL game at center Thursday, Michael Raffl had a goal and won two of five faceoffs. Berube said he wanted Raffl at center because of the speed he brings to the fourth line. Adam Hall played at wing, but was used on some faceoffs, winning four of five. . . . With the game tied at 1-1 and 2:37 left in the first period, Vinny Lecavalier was robbed by Frederik Andersen on a point-blank rebound, and the Ducks scored about two minutes later to turn the game in their favor.
