Nearly half of Hertl’s output this season has come in this streak, and he’s known to be a multi-game scorer, so keep an eye on him in this game.

The Flyers will make a decision on the target later today. For now, the expectation seems to be Martin Jones there will be another beginning. Jones faced a fair amount of work on Wednesday night, making 34 saves on 36 shots, so it’s not ruled out. Felix Sandstrom So did his NHL debut.

James Reimer will be a target for the Sharks. Reimer made 39 saves from 46 shots in a massive 8-7 penalty shootout win over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday in San Jose’s return game from the break. Reimer has been successful with wins in six of his last eight matches. Before scoring seven goals for Arizona, Reimer had conceded two or less goals in four consecutive games.
