Flyers Snowed Under by Avalanche

The Philadelphia Flyers (17-9-5) ventured into the Pepsi Center to take on the Colorado Avalanche (20-8-3).

The Avs scored the game’s first goal with Matt Calvert beating Carter Hart.

The lead would double when Mikko Rantanan picked up his first of two.

Colorado dominated play, outshooting Philadelphia by a 13-8 margin.

Despite not having Travis Konecny, the Flyers were finding their offense and picked the first 11 shots of the middle stanza and finished with 17.

Despite the pressure, Pavel Francoux was unflappable in the Colorado net.

The Flyguys found themselves behind the eightball when Rantanan pushed it to 3 zip.

Claude Giroux spoiled the shutout to close the final to 3-1.

Blue Lines: Yet again team Philadelphia was scoreless on the man advantage, going 0-2.

Shots on goal saw Colorado fire 27 with 24 Hart stops while the Flyers were frustrated with Francoux dominating by stopping 32 of 33.

Next up, Philadelphia stays on the road with a Saturday evening trip to Minnesota to attempt to tame the Wild.
