    FLYERS (5-7-0) at KINGS (3-7-1)

    10:30 p.m. ET; FS-W, NBCSP+, NHL.TV



    The Game

    Jack Campbell will be back in goal for the Los Angeles Kings against the Philadelphia Flyers at Staples Center on Thursday.

    The Kings' No. 1 goalie, Jonathan Quick, will miss 3-6 weeks after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. He was injured during practice Saturday.

    Campbell is 3-4-0 with a 2.72 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in eight games. He made 22 saves in a 4-3 win against the New York Rangers on Sunday that ended the Kings' six-game losing streak (0-6-0). He started all five games Quick missed with a lower-body injury from Oct. 7-15.

    The Flyers will try to win consecutive games for the first time this season. They won 3-2 against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Tuesday.



    Players to watch
    Flyers center Nolan Patrick has four points (three goals, one assist) in his past five games, and scored the winning goal against the Ducks to end Philadelphia's three-game losing streak (0-3-0).

    Kings defenseman Drew Doughty has six points (one goal, five assists) in his past five games.



    They said it
    "It's only one game. When you think about it, we still got a lot of ground to make up. But we have to bring that level of consistency on an every-night basis." -- Flyers forward Jakub Voracek on the win against the Ducks

    "It's nothing new to us. If you look at the last six years there's been stretches where goalies have come in and played well. They've all played well, and even when Jack's in, he's on his game." -- Kings forward Kyle Clifford on playing without goalie Jonathan Quick



    Flyers projected lineup
    Claude Giroux -- Sean Couturier -- Travis Konecny

    Oskar Lindblom -- Nolan Patrick -- Jakub Voracek

    Jack Campbell

    Peter Budaj

    Scratched: Oscar Fantenberg

    Injured: Jonathan Quick (knee), Paul LaDue (upper body), Jonny Brodzinski (shoulder)



    Status report

    Stat pack

    The Kings have scored a power-play goal in each of their past three home games and are 5-for-11 with the man-advantage during that span. … The Flyers have allowed at least two goals in seven straight games, and in all but one game this season. They lost 1-0 to the Vegas Golden Knights on Oct. 13.

    Folin for interference. Maybe a 4-on-4 if he sucked in a Kings player

    LOS ANGELES -- Oskar Lindblom had a goal and an assist to help the Philadelphia Flyers to consecutive wins for the first time this season with a 5-2 victory against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Thursday.

    Defenseman Ivan Provorov scored his second goal in as many games, and Brian Elliott made 25 saves for the Flyers (6-7-0), who opened their four-game Western Conference road trip with a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.

    "We've played pretty good hockey at different times. We just haven't been consistent enough from one game to the next, "Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. "And there's been games we haven't been consistent enough period to period. That's what we've been able to do the last two [games], is put consistent play together for 60 minutes."



    [WATCH: All Flyers vs. Kings highlights]



    Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and an assist for the Kings (3-8-1), who have lost seven of eight games. Jack Campbell made 26 saves in his first start since No. 1 goalie Jonathan Quick had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

    Lindblom gave Philadelphia a 3-1 lead at 14:05 of the second period. After it was ruled a good goal on the ice, the Situation Room confirmed the decision by video review that showed the puck hit Los Angeles defenseman Sean Walker's stick after Lindblom kicked it.

    Kovalchuk pulled the Kings to within 3-2 at 18:41. He has five points (two goals, three assists) his past two games.

    Claude Giroux put the Flyers ahead 4-2 at 14:27 of the third period, and Robert Hagg scored into an empty net to make it 5-2 at 16:49.

    "I think the guys feel great, feel confident," defenseman Radko Gudas said. "You can see everybody is making plays in the hard areas, having their heads up, and making the right plays and the hard plays. I think it's a step in the right direction."

    Wayne Simmonds put the Flyers ahead 2-1 at 10:53 of the second with a one-timer from the right face-off circle, 49 seconds after Jeff Carter tied it 1-1 with a power-play goal for the Kings at 10:04.

    The Flyers had a similar response against the Ducks, when Nolan Patrick scored the game-winning goal 21 seconds after Anaheim's Pontus Aberg tied it 2-2 late in the third period. The ability to get goals back quickly, center Sean Couturier said, is a sign of their improvement.

    "We're learning from our mistakes earlier," said Couturier, who had an assist. "It's a long game, and we're getting some good response right after, and we need that. It's a tight game, you got to keep playing."

    Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead at 17:35 of the first period when Provorov scored on a one-timer in the slot off a pass from Dale Weise.

    Los Angeles had three power plays in the first period, including 1:35 at 5-on-3. But the Flyers penalty kill, which is ranked 30th in the NHL (68.8 percent), allowed two shots on goal during the two-man advantage and prevented the Kings from establishing early momentum.

    "I think we played really good the whole game," Lindblom said. "We had a good PK the first period and just kept building on that. They didn't have much, so it was a perfect away game."

    They said it
    "I think it's a step in the right direction. It's a long season, but we have two good games after each other. It's definitely a better feeling than we had a week ago." -- Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas on winning two straight for the first time this season



    "A step slow with the puck, and a step slow checking to get the puck back, and too much time in your zone. Too many bad things happening." -- Kings coach John Stevens



    Need to know
    Patrick had two assists and has four points (one goal, three assists) his past two games. … Kovalchuk has consecutive multipoint games for the first time since Feb. 7-9, 2013. … Elliott got his eighth NHL point with an assist on Hagg's goal. … The Kings has scored at least one power-play goal in four straight home games (6-for-16). … The Flyers scratched goalie Michal Neuvirth for "precautionary reasons." Calvin Pickard backed up Elliott.



    What's next
    Flyers: At the San Jose Sharks on Saturday (10:30 p.m. ET; NBCSCA, NBCSP+, NHL.TV)

    Kings: Host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday (10:30 p.m. ET; FS-W, FS-O, NHL.TV)
