With their first win in the books and a familiar face possibly ready to add some reinforcement, the Philadelphia Flyers can focus on trying to continue their success at Florida and avoid equaling a 44-year-old regulation road slide to open a season.
Veteran forward Mike Knuble could begin his second stint in Philadelphia on Saturday night when the Flyers try for a fifth consecutive road win over the Panthers, losers of three straight.
Philadelphia (1-3-0) avoided its worst start by beating the New York Rangers 3-1 on Thursday.
