The Philadelphia Flyers will look to go for three wins in a row as they continue their excursion in sunny Florida. The high octane Tampa Bay Lightning will hope to erase the Flyers' hopes of continuing the winning streak.
Only a handful of hats decorated the ice at the BB&T Center in Florida during the third period.
To Matt Read it didn't matter if it was 10 hats or 1,000 hats. His hat trick helped spark the Flyers in their 7-1 rout over the Florida Panthers Saturday.
All it took for Read was three well-timed, well-placed shots for him to net the first hat trick of his career. His offensive outburst couldn't have come at a better time for the Flyers, who had scored only five goals in their first four games of the season.

One of the many highlights from Thursday's thrilling 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers was a penalty kill in the third period.
No, you didn't read that wrong. The Flyers killing of a 5-on-3 power play that included a four-minute double minor for high sticking and a two-minute penalty for hooking turned out to be the ultimate seal of Philadelphia's first victory of the 2013 season.
