Flyers Season Saved for Now

The Philadelphia Flyers’ season is saved… for now. This comes off a 3-2 overtime victory against the Boston Bruins. Are the Flyers finally getting some positive breaks?

Travis Sanheim blocked a Patrice Bergeron shot and went coast to coast to score the game-winner. Bergeron made an uncharacteristic shot then promptly fell down to allow Sanheim to get the game clincher.

The Orange and Black wanted the win in regulation but, they got the desperately needed “W”. The overtime winner puts team Philadelphia three points behind Boston for the final playoff spot. The teams have two games against each other this week. 

Some positives came out of the contest. Claude Giroux continues to up his game and had the assist on Travis Konecny’s goal. Konecny, Couturier, and Sanheim supplied the offense and Brian Elliott was strong in goal with 27 saves. The defense was finally strong. 

Dan Vladar stopped 29 Flyers shots on the emergency start. The Sanheim goal was his first in 30 games. Giroux may have had the play of the game when he got caught as the only man back on a Bruins 2 on 1.  He made it impossible for the puck to be passed and actually played it as if he were a defenseman. The two clubs have at it again Tuesday evening. The Flyers season is saved for now.
