To the Game

Bobby Brink started things with his first of two assists when he got the helper on the first of two markers from James van Riemsdyk at the 7:43 mark. Ivan Provorov doubled the lead at 14:29. JVR and Brink adding his second for his first NHL multi-point game. At 15:31, Mike Hoffman put the Habs on the board but, with some questions.

Brendan Gallagher made, what looked obvious, a hand pass, that wasn’t called. Mike Yeo never questioned the non-call because he said, it was not reviewable.

“They said there’s a mistake that happened and you know obviously I think the big thing for us is we didn’t let that derail us, We’ve been trying to talk about that a lot. “How you deal with adversity, whether it’s game-to-game or in the course of the game, and I thought that our guys did a good job with that tonight.” Interim Coach Yeo. That would be all the first-period scoring.

Second Stanza

Jake Evans (12th) knotted it up with help from Jeff Petry and Rem Pitlick. It took just a minute twenty-one for Oskar Lindblom (12) to put Philly back in front with helpers going to Zack MacEwen and another new face, Linus Hogberg. Ronny Attard and Provorov notching his second point of the night, set up Travis Konec y for his 15th that ended the middle session.


Can They Hold On?

Morgan Frost (4th) at the 15:36 mark gave the Flyers some insurance. van Riemsdyk added an unassisted marker, his 23rd for the icing on the cake. Cole Caufield added an “oh by the way” goal to cement the 6-3 final. Carey Price stopped 28 of 34 Philadelphia shots with Martin Jones going 31 of 34. Flyers end a losing streak.
