Former Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Mark Streit returns to Philly for the first time since being traded at the deadline.

Streit of course was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Valtteri Filppula, and then flipped to the Pittsburgh Penguins. As much as Streit wants to play tonight, he'll be a game time decision for the Pens after suffering a lower body injury on Monday.

The Flyers meanwhile have lost three in a row and have found themselves seven points out of the second Wild Card spot.

There was some shuffle in regards to the power play units as Ivan Provorov was moved to the left point of the first unit while Shayne Gostisbehere went to the right. Jakub Voracek was bumped down to the right side of the second power play unit.

After being scratched for the past six games, forward Dale Weise will step in for an injured Jordan Weal.

Steve Mason gets the start for Philly while Matt Murray starts for the Pens.
