Tell Me All About It

Just one puck hit a net in the opening stanza and was supplied by Oskar Lindblom collecting his 9th. Travis Sanheim and, returning from injury, Kevin Hayes collected the helpers. The intensity picks up. It wasn’t quite the Broad Street Bully days but, the Flyers may finally become a team. After whistle scrums became the order of the day with 26 penalty minutes doled out.

“It’s amazing when guys stick up for each other, it kind of brings everyone into the fight,” “That’s what good teams do. When you support each other and stick up for each other, good things usually happen.”

Cam Atkinson spoke candidly about the lift the team Recieved

Chicago dominated the period with, Alex DeBrincat (31st) from Jonathan Toews getting it even with just :24 played. At 12:39, Dylan Strome got his first of two from Dominik Kubalik and Chicago scoring leader, Patrick Kane notching his 39th assist and 56th point. The 2-1 lead ended at 15:28 with Cam Atkinson (1g,2a) potting his 19th off a pretty pass and shoot from Joel Farabee. Strome connected for his 11th to end the middle stanza with team Philadelphia trailing, 3-2. I know what you are thinking, another blown Flyers lead. Save that thought

Can They Pull it Off?

Coming off his horrible game Thursday, Derick Brassard upped his game in this one. Brassard connected off another pretty setup. This time it Atkinson and Farbee knot it up at the 3:09 mark. Finding a new lease on life, albeit maybe one game, the Flyers kept the pressure on and were rewarded at 8:28 when Atkinson hit his team-high 20th.

Once again, Farabee made it happen and with 11:32 remaining, the Flyers had a third-period lead. The clock wound down with Philadelphia getting 4th win in the last 25 games.
