The Philadelphia Flyers win second in a row, 3-1. Heading into the All-Star Break with a two-game win string, do we have a dynasty in the making? James Van Riemsdyk slammed home a rebound to give the Philadelphia Flyers (15-22-8) a hard-fought 3-1 victory over the visiting Winnipeg Jets (18-17-7) on Tuesday evening.
I think it would be best for us to just step away from the game a little bit. Reset, get refreshed. I think it’ll be a good break for us. We just have to make sure we’re ready to go for the next game.Goalie Carter Hart
To The Game
The sparse “crowd” at the Wells Fargo Center had a feeling of Deja Vu when, after just 48 seconds, Kyle Connor put one past Carter Hart for his 25th of the season. The opening twenty minutes came to its end with Winnipeg holding the 1-0 advantage.
On to the second. The score would remain the same for 10:42 when Travis Konecny fired a wrister that beat Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck for Laughton’s 8th of the season. After two, it was a taut 1-1 game.
To the final period. James van Riemsdyk (11th) became the hero when he tapped in a rebound of a Scott Laughton shot. The goal came with just 4:09 to play. Oskar Lindblom supplied the insurance with an empty-net marker for his 6th with Cam Atkinson adding his 19th helper.
It hits off his pad and you’ve got one of the best guys in the game around the net. Let him tap that in and win that one for us.Scott Laughton
Claude Giroux played in his 700th game as Captain. That makes him the longest-tenured Captain in Flyers team history. Winnipeg has apparently caught what was ailing the Flyers and has now lost 7 of their last eight. Shots on Goal favored Philadelphia, 36-33 with Philly also dominating from the face-off circles, 35-24. Hart had 32 saves and the opponent, Hellebuyck stopped 33. Giroux went 12 of 21 with Morgan Frost posting 7 of 10 on the face-offs. Flyers win the second game in a row. Do you smell a dynasty in the making?
