If the Flyers do go on a deep run, there's a solid chance they'll have to go through the Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final. Hart finding some success against Tampa Bay before then would be huge. "We know they’ve got some top players that have a lot of skill, " Hart said Friday in a video interview. "They’ve got a really good power play. But, I mean, that’s like any team, we always prepare the same, we go over their systems.

The man advantage is 0 for 8 through the first two games. The Flyers aren't having difficulty with entries or getting set up; it's more inconsistency in looks and not being able to finish. Without Jakub Voracek (undisclosed absence), the first-unit power play will have a new face. Perhaps James van Riemsdyk, a guy with a man advantage track record of finishing, jumps onto that unit. The Lightning had the worst penalty kill among the four round-robin teams during the regular season. The Flyers would love to light the lamp on the power play Saturday to gain a little momentum in that regard entering the first round. Head coach Alain Vigneault said the team worked on the man advantage a lot in practice Friday. • Speaking of van Riemsdyk, the 31-year-old winger will be a player to watch in this round-robin finale.

We’ve just got to trust our game and just play. " As well as the Flyers have played in the round robin, their power play has not been productive.

A bit surprisingly, van Riemsdyk was healthy scratched for Thursday's 3-1 win over the Capitals. "Probably less to do with benching, more to do with the big picture, " Vigneault said Friday. JVR can be an X-factor for the Flyers with his production, especially if it's from a depth role. Could this be the team to help him show his coach some more? In 36 career regular-season games against Tampa Bay, van Riemsdyk has 29 points (16 goals, 13 assists), his second-most points vs. any NHL team. • The winner of Saturday night's game will earn the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed in the first round of the playoffs, while the loser will settle for the No.

Tampa Bay boasts the NHL's most prolific offense, scoring a league-most 3. 47 goals per game during the regular season. After Hart made 34 saves on 35 shots in last Sunday's 4-1 win over the Bruins, a strong follow-up performance against a team like the Lightning would only boost the 21-year-old's frame of mind going into his first-ever best-of-seven NHL series.
