Hart will tend twine Thursday in a road start versus the Canadiens, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. Hart was yanked from Tuesday's game against the Lightning upon permitting three goals on nine shots. We can't stress enough how good Hart has been in his rookie campaign -- the 22-year-old owns a 13-7-1 record, 2.67 GAA and .920 save percentage through 21 games -- but the Flyers acquired veteran goalie Cam Talbot from the Oilers last Friday, and he's almost ready to serve as the healthy, established backup that this team has been longing for nearly all season. The Habs rank 16th in the league offensively by virtue of averaging 2.95 goals per game, but Hart got the best of them in Montreal on Jan. 19.
Hart allowed three goals on nine shots during about half a period before getting pulled in a 5-2 loss to the Lightning on Tuesday. Despite facing the top-scoring Lightning offense, this stinker comes as a surprise with how well Hart had been playing. He came into Tuesday having gone 11-3-1 with a 2.46 GAA and .930 save percentage in 2019. After winning eight in a row, though, Hart has stopped 100 of the last 112 shots (.893 save percentage) in the last four games. Overall, he is 13-7-1 with a 2.67 GAA and .920 save percentage this season.
Hart will start Tuesday's home game against the Lightning, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports. The 20-year-old phenom will try for his third win in as many starts when he takes on the league-leading Lightning. Hart has been phenomenal since the new year, racking up an 11-3-1 record to go along with a 2.46 GAA and .930 save percentage. Even though he faces the top-scoring offense (233), it's hard not to roll with the hot hand in Hart.
Hart will draw the start for the second day in a row in Detroit on Sunday. The rookie netminder continues to take on a huge workload for the Flyers. In 28 games since his Dec. 18 NHL debut, he's appeared in 20 contests. Hart owns a strong 2.62 GAA and .921 save percentage and should be started as usual in all fantasy formats.
Hart stopped 33 of 38 shots in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Red Wings. The rookie had a 5-1 cushion early in the third period and seemed to be cruising to his 12th win, but Detroit stormed back with four straight goals -- the last coming with only seven seconds on the clock -- before Travis Konecny salvaged a positive result for Philly in OT. Hart now has a 2.62 GAA and .921 save percentage, and with Cam Talbot having not yet officially joined the Flyers, the 20-year-old could be back in net for a road rematch with the Wings on Sunday.
