At least they are a step closer to a top 5 Draft pick.
Team Philadelphia (18-30-10) took one on the chin from the 41-12-5 Carolina BrindAmour’s in a matinee game in Raleigh.
To the Action
Neither team.could light a lamp in the first period in what became a forth and back affair.
To the Second
Steven Lorentz (7th) ended the scoreless strong after 28:34 with help from Derek Stepan who was not only playing in his 800th game but, recorded his 500th point on the goal.
“It’s funny how the game works, the stars align, “
It’s a special night. It’s something that not many people get the opportunity (to do). I’ve been fortunate enough to have that. It keeps adding on to the things I’ve been lucky to come across.”
Stepan commented on his milestones.
Eight minutes later Derick Brassard got it even with his sixth with help from Ristolainen and Cam Atkinson.
That would end the 1-1 second.
To the Finale
Light scoring Jordan Martinhook redirected a Vincent Trochek shot behind Martin Jones for his third.
Needless to say, the Flyers would pull Martin Jones and even more needless to say, it backfired.
Sebastian Aho netted his 26th with just 21 ticks left to give Carolina the 3-1 win.
Martin Jones turned away 33 of the 35 Carolina chances with Frederik Andersen stopping 28 of 29 and picking up his 30th victory.
Flyers Drop 3-1 to Carolina.
