(Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers will try to avoid a three-game losing streak today, when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

The Flyers lost in New York to the Rangers on Thursday and were in action Saturday afternoon in Boston, which posted a 4-3 decision over Philly at TD Banknorth Garden. Marc Savard scored two goals and added two assists to lead the Bruins over Philadelphia.

Sami Kapanen had a two-goal game and Robert Esche made 22 saves for the Flyers, who had won a season-high three straight tilts before the back-to-back setbacks. Philadelphia is last in the NHL with just 26 points this year.

Special teams were a problem for the Flyers in the game as Philadelphia went 0-for-6 with the man advantage and gave up two Boston power-play goals.

Philadelphia captain Peter Forsberg missed his second straight game with a right groin injury and is expected to be sidelined for at least one week.

The Flyers, who are 8-15-0 as the visitor this year, are 3-3 so far on their season-long eight-game road trip. They will wrap up the swing Tuesday in Washington.

Ottawa was flying high before dropping a test against visiting New Jersey on Saturday. Brian Gionta netted a pair of goals, including the game-winner late in the third period, as the Devils bested the Senators, 3-2.
