Flyers Gut Out a 5-3 Win

Flyers gut out a 5-3 win. The struggling Philadelphia Flyers (4-2-1)  roughed a 5-3 win over the New Jersey Devils (3-2-1) on Tuesday evening. Philly went up the New Jersey turnpike in hopes of stopping the oil leaks they have suffered.

A few items that they hoped to fix may have been, for now, rectified. The Flyguys finally outshot someone, 30-26 and the power play was firing on all cylinders. James Van Riemsdyk (2g) lit the lamp on two Man up tallies to give Philly a 2-0 lead.

The Flyers have lately been deviled and this was no exception when Michael McLeod and Travis Zajac got things even. Would Philly give up the game or find a way to pull it out?

Claude Giroux (2a) set up Nolan Patrick (1g) for a sweet 21-foot wrister that got past Devil netminder, Scott Wedgewood, and Philly had a lead. Joel Farabee quickly doubled the advantage before New Jersey chipped away to get it interesting. Ivan Provorov found the empty cage to bring the final to 5-3.

Positives

Claude Giroux was a factor and JVR grabbed a share the NHL goal scoring lead. Brian “Moose” Elliott had his 93:10 scoreless streak snapped. For the first game in the young season, team Philadelphia skated away with the edge in shots in goal, 30-26. The same two teams go at it again on Thursday.
