Flyers Shine In Huge Win Against Panthers

Noah Cates scored the go-ahead goal 2:36 into the third period, and the Flyers beat the Panthers 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cates’ goal was his first since Oct. 24, snapping a 22-game drought for the 25-year-old forward. He picked up a loose puck near the high slot, skated in alone, and scored unassisted for what became the game-winner.

The Flyers snapped their five-game losing streak in their first game since Jan. 27 following the NHL’s All-Star break. Travis Konecny also scored for Philadelphia, and Samuel Ersson made 20 saves. Carter Verhaeghe scored for the Panthers. Anthony Stolarz, who got the start to give All-Star goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky a little more rest, stopped 23 shots.

Florida’s four-game win streak came to an end, as well as Sam Reinhart’s 13-game point streak, which was tied for the second-longest in franchise history.

Flyers forward Owen Tippett played his first game in South Florida since the Panthers traded him to Philadelphia in 2022. He also returned to the lineup from a lower-body injury which kept him out of the team’s past four games. Panthers forward Nick Cousins played his first game since Jan. 2 after missing 12 games while in the concussion protocol.
