    No longer the cellar dwellers?

    The Flyers (16-22-6) can move out of last place in the Metropolitan Division when they visit the Devils (16-20-7) Saturday.

    Let's look at the essentials:

    When: 1 p.m. ET with Flyers Pregame Live at 12:30 p.m.
    Where: Prudential Center
    Broadcast: NBC Sports Philadelphia
    Live stream: NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and the NBC Sports MyTeams app

    • With a victory in regulation, the Flyers (38 points) will slide ahead of the Devils (39 points). The Flyers, who have been in the Metro basement since New Year's Day, also have a chance to win consecutive games for just the second time since mid-November.

    The other time came Dec. 18-20, when Carter Hart won his first two career starts in the Flyers' first two games under interim head coach Scott Gordon.

    • The Flyers have had a nightmarish time on the road. They are 1-7-2 in their last 10 games away from the Wells Fargo Center, a stretch in which they've been outscored 44-20. Yes, that is nearly 4½ goals allowed per game.

    The Prudential Center hasn't been a fun place for the Flyers, either. They've lost four of their last five trips to Newark, New Jersey.

    For as bad as the Devils are on the road (5-15-3), they've been much better at home (11-5-4).

    • The Flyers will catch a break with not having to see Taylor Hall, last season's Hart Memorial Trophy winner. The 27-year-old winger is out with a lower-body injury and has been a problem for the Flyers in the past, scoring 21 points (nine goals, 12 assists) in 17 lifetime matchups.

    • Carter Hart will make his ninth start. After converting a career-high 37 saves in the Flyers' 2-1 win Thursday over the Stars, the 20-year-old lowered his goals-against average to 2.46 and raised his save percentage to .920.

    James van Riemsdyk provided a great quote on the rookie goalie:

    When you have a goalie that's making big stops and has that coolness to him, for whatever reason, you can definitely feel that on the ice.

    I would be curious to see what his heart rate gets to because he seems so cool under pressure.
