Another impressive win in South Philly as the Philadelphia Flyers continue to let the good times roll at the Wells Fargo Center. Detroit Red Wings after coming off a tough loss at home to the St. Louis Blues, losing 4-3. The Red Wings were looking to bounce out of the loss column. However, that wasn’t the case because Carter Hart becomes a brick wall in net. Carter, the Hart break kid, pushes the Flyers for their 4th win in five games.
To the Action
In the 1st period, their was lots of back-and-forth action. However, neither the Flyers nor Red Wings could score a goal. Good goalie play by both Carter Hart and Alex Nedeljkovic kept the puck out of the net.
That all changed in the 2nd period. Scott Laughton has become a problem for the Detroit Red Wings as of late. Midway through the second, Scott Laughton gets the offensive puck and makes a pass to Owen Tippett. Tippett then finds Kieffer Bellows, who gets his own rebound and lands the puck in the back of the net. One nothing Philly.
Scott Laughton was not done with Detriot. Laughton causes a turnover in the Flyers’ defensive zone, then zooms up ice for the second goal of the game. The Flyers are now up 2-0 over the Red Wings. This was Laughton’s 7th goal against the Red Wings and his 18th goal of the season.
On to the final Stanza. The 3rd period did not breed too much offensive action. The Red Wings try to take advantage of the power play situation towards the end of the period. However, this was to no avail. Hart wanted a shutout, and he got one. Carter Hart was on his A-game on Saturday afternoon. He made 29 saves on 29 shots on goal. Hart pushes the Flyers to their 4th win in five games. It’s their longest winning streak of the year. There are only ten more games this season. The next one is against the Canadiens of Montreal this Tuesday night at 7 PM. It all goes down at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philly.
