• Carter Hart will be back between the pipes after being pulled late in the second period of the Game 2 loss.

The 22-year-old allowed four goals on 26 shots.

"I'm not sure his game was rough; I think our whole group had a challenging night," Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault said Saturday. "That's why you've got to have faith in the group, faith in the leadership, faith that we're going to come up with a much better game and a much better effort. Our guys are aware of what's at stake. The stake is to get to four first, win four games first. Everybody knows we weren't very good. The most important thing is that we know it and we are going to get a chance to redeem ourselves."

A positive for the Flyers is that Hart hasn't lost consecutive starts over his past 17 games.

• Canadiens goalie Carey Price has been a stud all tournament so far. The veteran netminder is 4-2-0 with a 1.46 goals-against average, .954 save percentage and two shutouts.

It's also his birthday today.

• Following the Game 2 drubbing, the Flyers could make some changes.

It's looking like Travis Konecny will play despite a scare late in the third period of Game 2 when he blocked a shot with his foot. The status of Michael Raffl (undisclosed injury) is uncertain, while the Game 3 forward combinations and defensive pairs are unknown.

One change that might seem most obvious would be Robert Hagg drawing into the lineup for Shayne Gostisbehere, who played Games 1 and 2.

"There's no doubt that Robert down the stretch was a big part," Vigneault said Sunday. "We had some injuries on our back end, he played a smart, simple, physical brand protecting the front of our net. I do know that if we need him moving forward, he's the ultimate team player. If we need him, he'll be ready."
