Kings vs Flyers Game 50: Lines, Notes & How to Watch

Fans should also keep an eye on Quinton Byfield, who’s playing the best hockey of his NHL career right now.



After getting back into the win column on Sunday, the Los Angeles Kings (26-17-6) need another strong performance Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers (20-21-7). 

Puck drops at 4:00 PM.

The last time the two teams faced off, the Flyers came out victorious in Alex Edler's 1000th game.

Todd McLellan appears to be sticking with Pheonix Copley after a solid performance in Chicago Sunday. McLellan's stuck with Copley though some tough performances recently and we'll see if that pays off tonight.

The other big question is, what will the fourth line look like, and will they get more ice time? The young line of Rasmus Kupari-Alex Turcott-Samuel Fagemo played well in their limited minutes and perhaps another strong performance Tuesday will earn them more leash.

Fans should also keep an eye on Quinton Byfield, who's playing the best hockey of his NHL career right now. Finally showing why he was drafted second overall. 

This is another game with a must-win feel, despite it being a game in January against an Eastern Conference team.
