Flyers Pound Kraken

The Philadelphia Flyers pound the Kraken, 6-1 at the Wells Fargo Center. If Flyers fans can expect this on most nights, it will be a fun ride. Yes, it was an expansion team. Yes, they were playing their fourth game in a week. But, the rowdy Philadelphia crowd was treated to a lop-sided 6-1 domination of the 1-2-1 Seattle Kraken. Claude Giroux, Travis Konecny, Newcomers Derick Brassard, and Ryan Ellis, and, of all people, Ryan  Braun boosted the 1-0-1 Flyers to a 5-0 edge.



The onslaught chased Phillip Grubauer (5 goals on 20 shots). Carter Hart was outstanding turning away 23 of 24 attempts.
Flyers Coach, Alain Vigneault praised his netminder, who picked up his 50th career win. “In our start, we made two major mistakes,’’ coach Alain Vigneault said. “And we got big saves (from Hart) right off the hop. That’s basically the difference – if they score, they get a little confidence, a bit of energy, and if we don’t score, they come right back. Those (saves) sent us in the right direction.’’ For good measure, the Flyers got the 6th goal from Joel Farabee.


As mentioned, Brassard and Ellis hit rope. We have two new fan favorites as a pair of fights ensued after Philly went up 5-1. Nick Seeler pushed a ref out of the way go at it with Jamie Oleksiak, all 6′-7″ of the Kraken back-liner. Nate Thompson absolutely pounded Nathan Bastain. Here is the reaction from Seeler. “He was sticking up for his teammate, which I understand and respect. I didn’t want to back down, and he’s a big boy so it was a good scrap. It was fun.”

Travis Konecny would chime in.” I was just saying to Seels on the way in that I’ve never heard the building that loud in a long time. I don’t expect anything less coming from our fans. The emotion of just being back in Philly and they love us getting into it with the other team. He did a great job, Thomer did a great job. You can hear that atmosphere in the rink and on the bench. It was an awesome night.” The Philadelphia Flyers pound the Kraken.
