Flyers Cage Panthers, 6-2

After a demoralizing lost to the Islanders, the Philadelphia Flyers (32-19-7) ventured to sunny and warm Florida to battle The Florida Panthers (30-21-6) in a crucial game for the Orange and Black.

The goaltending matchup appeared to be an epic with Flyers phenom, Carter Hart matching up against Sergei “Bob” Bobrobsky..

Bob must have spent the afternoon at Spring Training and, fortunately for the Flyboys, was absolutely brutal and was yanked after the third goal on the Philly boys 9th shot.

The red hot, James Van Riemsdyk, 4 goals an 7 assists in his previous 12 games, continued his torrid pace and tapped in a goal mouth scrum on the power play at 4:24 and Philly went in the lead, 1-0.

The Flyers added late goals, the first at 17:27 when Tyler Pitlick bagged a short side goal, followed quickly by Michael Raffl at 19:32 to put the visitors in a 3-0 advantage after one period of play.

Philadelphia continued their domination with Scott Laughton greeting Sam Montembeault who replaces Bobrosky and Philly was in a cakewalk with 21;22 to play.

The icing on the cake began to melt and the Panthers began to growl when Jonathan Huberdeau broke the Carter Hart shutout and Alexsander Barkov sparked some life in the Panthers.

Sean Coutorier gave Philadelphia a three goal edge before Robert Hagg slammed the door on the important, 6-2 victory.

Shots on goal were even at 27 with Carter Hart turning aside 25 for the victors. For Florida, Bobrobsky stopped 6 of 9 shots and his replacement, Montembeault was a decent 15 of 18.
