Fly­ers: Philadel­phia was 9-10-3 af­ter a Nov. 25 loss to the New York Rangers and has won nine in a row since. … Winger Jakub Vo­racek was the NHL’s first star for last week, with nine points in four games. … The Fly­ers opened this trip with a 1-0 over­time win at Detroit on Sun­day, with Bray­den Schenn scor­ing the game-end­ing goal and goalie An­thony Sto­larz get­ting the shutout in only his sec­ond ca­reer start. … Sto­larz is back­ing up Steve Ma­son with Michal Neu­virth out with a knee in­jury. … The last time the Fly­ers won nine straight was in April 1995.

Avalanche: Although Se­myon Var­lamov — who won’t suit up Wed­nes­day — has had pre­vi­ous pe­ri­odic groin is­sues that have kept him out of the lineup for sig­nif­i­cant stretches, Avalanche coach Jared Bed­nar on Tues­day called the Rus­sian goalie “day to day” and added, “Ap­par­ently, he’s feel­ing bet­ter to­day than yes­ter­day, so I’m hop­ing it’s go­ing to be shorter than what he’s had in the past.” … Cen­ters Carl Soder­berg (ill) and Joe Col­borne (lower body in­jury) also didn’t prac­tice Tues­day. It seems likely that one or both will be avail­able against the Fly­ers. … Colorado is car­ry­ing only one ex­tra for­ward, but Bed­nar said that as of Tues­day af­ter­noon, there were no plans to re­call a for­ward from San An­to­nio.
