Flyers Drop a Tough One in Overtime

The Philadelphia Flyers drop a tough one in overtime, 2-1. Alex Lyon came within :40 from his first shutout when Lars Eller beat him to counter Scott Laughton who nailed a goal on a 2 on 1 pass from James Van Riemsdyk.

“Just super frustrating,” Lyon said. “As good as you play, you still give up a goal in the last 40 seconds, and then you give one up in overtime and you lose the game.”

The Eller goal put it to overtime and with :59.4 to go, Conor Sheary put an end to the contest. The Flyers can come away feeling good about the play of Lyon, who was fabulous making 38 save and showing the great technique in the net. Another reason to smile, the result gives Pittsburgh the top spot in the Eastern Division.

Washington was without, Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov, John Carlson, and Goaltender. Ilya Samsonov for various reasons. Craig Anderson evanescence the oldest goaltender to start a game in Capitals history at the age of 39. Anderson was also very good at stopping 28 Flyers shots. TJ Oshie went off with an injury and Karma got Tom Wilson who went knee on knee with Nick Aube-Kubel in the first period but returned in the second. The Philadelphia Flyers drop a tough one.
