You read that right. The Philadelphia Flyers (15-7-7) have a four-game win streak. The Flyers swam against the Sharks, conquered the Kings, and feasted on the Ducks. They now neutered the Arizona Coyotes. After a five-goal second period, the Orange and Black attack are 4 for their last four games.
To the Action
A 6-2 victory at the Well Fargo Center in South Philly. Prior to the NHL-mandated holiday break, the Flyers had won just four of their previous 23 games (4-14-5), a stretch in which they scored 2.48 goals per game. Following this season’s break, they’ve gone 4-0-0 and have scored 4.50 goals per game.
Newly announced All-Star Kevin Hayes scored one of five goals for Philadelphia in the second period. Hayes earned the nod over winger Travis Konecny and goalie Carter Hart. During the first intermission, Hayes was named to his first-ever All-Star Game, which will take place on February 4th in Sunrise, Florida. Hayes finished with a three-point performance against Arizona (one goal, two assists).
Morgan Frost had four assists to help lift the Flyers to the 6-2 whooping of the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night. Cam York has 2 assists on the night, which also happens to be his 22nd Birthday.
Konecny scores his 20th goal of the season to start the scoring onslaught in the second period. Joel Farabee, Wade Allison, and Ivan Provorov also scored for the 5-2 lead that kept the Flyers en Fuego during this run. James van Riemsdyk made it 6-2 in the third. The Philadlephia Flyers scored at least three goals in eight straight games. Travis Konecny, Joel Farabee, Wade Allison, Ivan Provorov, and Kevin Hayes scored goals in under 13 and a half minutes.
Hart stopped 21 shots. After recovering from an upper-body injury, Carter Hart was back in the net for his first start since Dec. 22. Michael Carcone scored late in the first period to give Arizona a 1-0 lead, and Nick Ritchie scored a goal early in the second for a 2-1 lead. Former Flyer Shayne Gostisbehere, in his second season with Arizona, played in his 500th career NHL game Thursday night. That was about it for the Coyotes. Arizona lost three straight games. The Flyers have a four game win streak for the first time since Jan. 26-31, 2021.
The competition really gets difficult over the next stretch. They host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night for the next game. They then travel to Buffalo for the Sabres, then back-to-back with Capitals, and battle with the best in the NHL, the Boston Bruins.
