The Flyers will try to continue their impressive run - and contain the league's top goal scorer - when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night. Flyers center Sean Couturier and linemates Max Talbot and Jakub Voracek will have a difficult challenge when matched against the high-scoring Steven Stamkos unit. Stamkos leads the NHL with 52 goals and is second in points with 87 - giving him one more point than the Flyers' Claude Giroux. With his next goal, Stamkos will set a single-season franchise record; he shares the mark originally set by Vinny Lecavalier in 2006-07.

Stamkos has not been cleared to return from a broken leg. He was one of 14 forwards selected for the Canadian team ahead of Giroux last month by executive director Steve Yzerman, who is also Tampa Bay's general manager. Giroux reiterated on Wednesday that he was "disappointed" by the decision but that he had moved past the snub.
