The 13-14-6 Philadelphia Flyers completed their four game road trip by dropping a 4-1 decision to the Anaheim Ducks (18-11-7) Tuesday evening.
Carter Hart returned to action and stopped 26 shots in defeat. Troy Terry was a one man wrecking crew with a hat trick. John Gibson was outstanding,stopping 28 Philadelphia tries.
To The Action
Terry registered his 19th off passes from Hampus Lindholm and Jamie Drysdale with just 3:21 played.
Six minutes later, Terry added a second marker with help from Drysdale (2a) and Isac Lundestrom.
Philadelphia cut into the advantage when Cam Atkinson scored his 13th and first since his hat trick against New Jersey back on December 14th.
Scott Laughton and the surging Joel Farabee would be credited with the assists.
That ended the first period scoring with Anaheim holding a 2-1 edge. The Atkinson goal came at 18:42.
To The Second
Sonny Milano scored on the power play at 17:49 when he converted a Sam Steel, Rickard Rakell set up.
Close It Out Time
With Hart pulled for an extra attacker, Terry potted his hat trick on another power play with Max Comtois setting it up.
Terry with his 21 goals is third in the league and becomes the second Duck to reach that number in just 35 games behind Corey Perry who accomisbed the same feat in 2013-14.
Face offs were heavily controlled by Anaheim, 61-37 with Patrick Brown nabbing 8 of the 11 he took.
The three goals from Terry marked his first career three goal game. 11 of his 21 have been either game tying goals or goals to put Anaheim ahead.
“I had the puck a lot more against Colorado (on Sunday). Some scoring chances didn’t go my way the last game but they did tonight,” Terry said.
The win was the 100th for Ducks Head Coach, Dallas Eakins.
The Flyers were without Claude Giroux and Ivan Provorov due to, what else? Covid protocol.
