The Philadelphia Flyers are currently in a huge battle for a playoff spot and have a chance to make up some ground tonight. 

The Flyers host the Pittsburgh Penguins at Wells Fargo Center on Monday and with a win will be within four points of the Penguins and the final Wild Card spot. 

Carter Hart gets the start and looks for his ninth win in a row as he's been absolutely incredible since the start of the new year. The 20 year old has a 2.35 goals against average and .934 save percentage during his win streak. 

A win tonight would set a new NHL record for win streak by a goalie before his 21st birthday.

The Penguins on the other hand have lost four straight games but will likely get Evgeni Malkin back after a four game absence. 

It's simple, this is a big moment to prove something for the Flyers and head coach Scott Gordon summed it up perfectly. 

"We've got to treat this like a playoff game."
