KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHILADELPHIA:

LAST SEASON:47-26-9,103 points. Lost to New Jersey Devils 4-1 in second round.

COACH: Peter Laviolette, 4th season with Flyers, 122-73-26; 11th season overall, 366-257-25-60 in NHL.

ADDED: D Luke Schenn, LW Ruslan Fedotenko, D Bruno Gervais.

LOST: RW Jaromir Jagr, G Sergei Bobrovsky, RW James van Riemsdyk, D Matt Carle, D Pavel Kubina

PLAYER TO WATCH: G Ilya Bryzgalov. Bryzgalov made few fans in his first season in Philadelphia with his quirky personality and erratic play. He had his moments of proving he was worth the $51 million, nine-year deal he signed, but he'll need more of them in the playoffs to win a Stanley Cup.

OUTLOOK: The Flyers have one of the best players in the game in team captain Claude Giroux, but the thin defense needs improvement and Bryzgalov has to improve if Philadelphia is going win its first Stanley Cup since 1975.

OTTAWA:

LAST SEASON: 41-31-10, 92 points. Lost to New York Rangers 4-3 in first round

COACH: Paul MacLean, 2nd season with Senators and NHL, 41-31-10.

ADDED: RW Guillaume Latendresse, D Marc Methot, D Mike Lundin.

LOST: LW Nick Foligno, C Zenon Konopka, LW Nikita Filatov, D Matt Carkner, D Filip Kuba.

PLAYER TO WATCH: D Erik Karlsson's continued emergence as the NHL's top play-making defenseman. The 22-year-old Swede won his first Norris Trophy in only his second NHL season after leading all blue-liners with 78 points (19 goals, 59 assists).

OUTLOOK: A surprising run to the playoffs led to captain Daniel Alfredsson's decision to put off retirement for at least one more season. The Senators have the capacity to build on last year under the firm direction of MacLean, the longtime Red Wings' assistant, who had an impressive debut as a first-time head coach.

*Flyers-Senators Preview* =========================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Philadelphia (22-22-3) at Ottawa (24-16-6), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Ottawa Senators could finish as high as fifth in the Eastern Conference or as low as eighth, but they're just happy being in the playoffs.

Having reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson back is nice, too.

Ottawa will try to avoid a season-high third straight home loss Saturday night against a Philadelphia Flyers team that's closing out a non-playoff season on a surge.

Back after missing 31 games with a lacerated Achilles' tendon, Karlsson set up two goals - one of them Sergei Gonchar's winner - in a 2-1 overtime victory at Washington on Thursday. That helped the Senators (24-16-6) clinch a playoff berth and move into sixth in the East.

Should Ottawa finish in that spot, it would open against the Capitals. The Senators, though, could also overtake fifth-place Toronto or get passed by the New York Rangers and Islanders.

"This is what you fight for all year - to get into the playoffs," captain Daniel Alfredsson said. "No matter who you play, it's going to be a tough series. Everybody poses different challenges, and I think we're the same way: We pose different challenges to other teams."

The Senators are a much more dangerous team with Karlsson on the ice. Expected to be sidelined up to six months after Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke stepped on the back of his leg Feb. 13, the defenseman played a game-high 27-plus minutes Thursday as the Senators improved to 5-2-0 since a season-worst five-game losing streak. That slide ended with a 3-1 win at Philadelphia on April 11.

"I would have been happy if I sat in the stands and we would have won this game, as well, I think, and that's the main goal," Karlsson said. "I'm going to have to work on my stuff, and as long as this team keeps winning, I'm going to be happy."

The Flyers (22-22-3) appear to be playing mad after missing the postseason, winning three straight and five of six. They've outscored opponents 23-11 in the five victories.

"What's the point? There's no difference (if we win Saturday)," said Ilya Bryzgalov, who finished with 21 saves in a 2-1 victory over the Islanders on Thursday. "We are not going to make the playoffs. It doesn't matter whether you're two games below or two games above .500. It's pointless.

"Of course, it's nice to win the games, but at the end of the day it doesn't change anything."

There could be a number of changes made in the offseason, though, as coach Peter Laviolette's return for a fifth season is in doubt. Veteran center Danny Briere could also be playing his last game in a Flyers sweater.

"It wouldn't be right for me to start commenting on that at this point," Briere said. "I have a job to do. I have one more game to play."

Briere scored just his sixth goal of the season Thursday.

The Senators are seeking a 12th victory in Philadelphia's last 14 visits. Ottawa plays at Boston in Sunday's regular-season finale, a game rescheduled from April 15 due to the Boston Marathon bombings.
