Hart coughed up four goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Sabres.
Hart's 100th NHL performance was one that he'd like to forget, as the Flyers gave up a 2-0 lead from the first period and ended up stunned by the league's worst team on record. You'd have to go back to March 18th, a road clash with the Islanders, to see the last time that Hart's emerged victorious from a given contest. Over that seven-game span, he's 0-5-2 with a 4.04 GAA and .850 save percentage. Brian Elliott currently looks like the better goaltender for the Flyers, though he's only played twice in April.
Hart will defend the home net in Sunday's game versus the Sabres, Charlie O'Connor of The Athletic reports.
Hart has gotten back on track lately, but he's still on a six-game losing streak with an .846 save percentage. The Sabres have shown some life lately, scoring at least three goals in six of their last seven outings, but this is still a solid opportunity for Hart to notch his first win since March 18.
Hart stopped 21 of 23 shots Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Hart had no chance on a pair of New York goals 63 seconds apart in the first period, both coming on the doorstep from centering passes. He shut the Islanders down the rest of the way, save for a Brock Nelson shootout tally. Hart is now winless in his last six (0-4-2), but he's logged a .903 save percentage in three April appearances. That won't win the Flyers or fantasy managers any championships, but it's a substantial improvement on the .815 mark he logged in March.
Hart will guard the road goal in Thursday's game versus the Islanders.
Hart has played fine over his last two starts, but he's still on a five-game losing streak with an .833 save percentage in that stretch. The Islanders have won six of their last eight games while averaging 3.50 goals, and they just added Kyle Palmieri via trade from the Devils.
Hart allowed three goals on 25 shots Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.
Brad Marchand's short-handed goal 8:21 into the third period snapped a 2-2 tie and Patrice Bergeron sealed the deal in the final minute with an empty-netter, extending Hart's winless skid to five games (0-4-1). Hart has just one win regulation since the start of March, and he owns a rough .871 save percentage in 24 appearances this season.
Hart will get the start at home against the Bruins on Tuesday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
The Flyers will give Brian Elliott the starting nod for Monday's tilt in Boston while Hart will see action in the second game of the back-to-back set. The 22-year-old is 0-3-1 over his last four starts, allowing 17 goals on just 95 shots during that span. He's struggled against the Bruins all season, as well, going 0-2-2 with a 5.32 GAA and .843 save percentage.
Hart made 22 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders on Saturday.
He only yielded one goal in the shootout but that was enough to take the loss. This was Hart's first game since March 25, when he allowed five goals on 11 shots against the Rangers. He looked much sharper than he has throughout March, so the extra work with the goalie coach seems to have paid off. Let's hope this is the start of a rebound for Hart and the Flyers.
Hart will guard the road goal during Saturday's matchup with the Islanders, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hart hasn't played since March 25 against the Rangers, but he's been working with Philadelphia's goaltending coach over the past week, and the Flyers are hoping the time off will pay dividends for the 22-year-old netminder. Hart will attempt to pick up his ninth win of the season in a rough road matchup with an Islanders club that's 14-1-2 at home this year.
Hart won't suit up for the Flyers' next two games against the Sabres on Monday or Wednesday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Hart's struggles have been brutal this season, as he's posted an .869 save percentage and a 4.03 GAA across 22 appearances. The 22-year-old can't seem to pull himself out of this slump despite showing elite upside over his first two NHL seasons. Head coach Alain Vigneault wants Hart to focus on practice for the next few days, so Brian Elliott is expected to start while Alex Lyon serves as the backup.
Hart was pulled in the second period of Thursday's 8-3 loss to the Rangers after allowing five goals on 11 shots.
Hart's struggles continue, as he has now posted a sub-.900 save percentage in 10 consecutive appearances and allowed 15 goals over his last three starts. Brian Elliott relieved Hart early in the second period and proceeded to stop eight of 11 shots. Given Hart's abhorrent performance in this one, Elliott will likely get the nod for Saturday's rematch.
Hart will patrol the crease during Thursday's home game versus the Rangers.
Hart has struggled recently, suffering back-to-back losses to the Islanders and Devils while posting an ugly 5.12 GAA and .833 save percentage. He'll attempt to get back on track in a home matchup with a Rangers team that's 7-7-1 on the road this year.
Hart allowed four goals on 32 shots in a 4-3 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.
Hart's stretch of games with a save percentage below .900 reached nine in a row, and his mark for the month has dropped all the way to .830. It doesn't help that Hart's teammates continue to cough the puck up in the defensive zone, but the 22-year-old clearly isn't the same ascendant goaltender who went 40-26-4 over his first two NHL seasons. He's now 8-8-3 on the year with a 3.85 and .875 save percentage.
Hart will protect the home net in Tuesday's game versus the Islanders.
Brian Elliott will start in Monday's game versus the Islanders. Both Hart and Elliott have struggled lately, as Hart specifically has recorded worse than a .900 save percentage in eight straight appearances.

Hart allowed six goals on 28 shots in a 6-1 loss to the Islanders on Saturday.
Hart and the Flyers continue to bleed goals against. New York raced out to a 4-0 lead before the game was even 16 minutes old, capitalizing on a combination of Philadelphia gaffes and Hart's inability to come up with a timely stop. The 22-year-old had defeated the Islanders in his previous start on Thursday, a seemingly encouraging rebound after a 9-0 loss one night earlier to the Rangers, but it's right back to the drawing board in Philadelphia. Hart has yet to post a save percentage above .900 in any of his eight March appearances, putting up a dreadful .821 mark for the month.
Hart stopped 22 of 25 shots in a 4-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday.
Hart was staked to a 3-0 lead in the second period, but things got a little dicey when the Islanders came storming back to tie the game in the third. Philadelphia's Oskar Lindblom saved the day for the Flyers, potting the winner with 2:22 remaining. It was a nice answer by Philadelphia following a 9-0 drubbing at the hands of the Rangers the previous night, and a step in the right direction for Hart, who became the first goaltender all year to defeat the Islanders on their home ice in regulation.
Hart will guard the cage during Thursday's road game versus the Islanders.
Hart has struggled in the month of March, compiling a 1-3-0 record while posting an ugly 4.76 GAA and .817 save percentage in six appearances. The 22-year-old netminder will try to get back on track in a rough road matchup with an Islanders squad that's 12-0-2 at home this year.
Hart came off the bench in the second period Wednesday and allowed four goals on 16 shots in a 9-0 loss to the Rangers.
Hart relieved Brian Elliott early in the middle stanza with the Flyers already trailing 5-0, and the 22-year-old was unable to stop the bleeding before the second intermission arrived. Both Elliott and Hart have endured a miserable month of March, with Hart logging an .817 save percentage in six appearances. Fantasy managers should be avoiding this situation at all costs right now.
Hart will guard the road goal in Thursday's game against the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brian Elliott will start in Wednesday's matchup versus the Rangers. Hart is enduring a rough March, as he's posted an .828 save percentage and a 1-3-0 record over five appearances. Though the Islanders' nine-game win streak ended in Washington on Tuesday, they can still be considered red-hot for all intents and purposes.
Hart stopped 20 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers.
Despite the shaky save percentage, Hart didn't play badly and had little chance on the four New York goals. The OT win snapped a personal three-game losing streak for Hart, but the 22-year-old still has a rough 3.62 GAA and .884 save percentage on the season.
Hart will start Monday's road tilt against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Both Hart and Brian Elliott have struggled lately, but Elliott was pulled from Saturday's loss to Washington, so Hart will be given the next opportunity to right the ship. New York had dropped three games in a row prior to Saturday's 4-0 win over Boston, but the return of Artemi Panarin from his leave of absence inspired perhaps the Rangers' best all-around performance of the season in that one, so Hart will have his hands full if the Rangers are able to replicate that effort Monday at Madison Square Garden.
