Flyers Lose Tight Contest to the Canes

The Philadelphia Flyers looking to bounce back from Saturday’s game, losing to the Anaheim Ducks 7-4. Frank Vatero would record a hat trick in that matchup, leaving a bad taste in the Flyers’ mouth. The Carolina Hurricanes, coming off back-to-back wins over the Seattle Kraken in overtime and a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks, were looking to continue building momentum.  Unfortunately, the Flyers would lose this tightly contested match-up against the Canes, 3-2.

1st Period: Getting Energetic 

Hurricanes got on the scoreboard early with a goal from Stefan Nosen. After that goal, the Hurricanes were just outworking Philly for the majority of the period on both sides of the puck. The Flyers defense was struggling in their own zone, and they couldn’t generate anything offensively.

Late in the first, Sean Couturier caused Jordan Martinook to cough up a turnover, and Owen Tippet picked up the loose puck for a breakaway goal. Not too long after that, Garnet Hathaway, the former Boston Bruin, gets his first goal of the season from Nick Delosire on the assist. The Flyers would end the first period 2-1.
