The Philadelphia Flyers with a Hart stopping win. Carter Hart with what may be his best game as a pro, stole a game from the Vegas Golden Knights. The Knights (32-22-4) fired 48 shots on the Flyers (18-28-10) but we’re repeatedly stoned by Hart.
It was unbelievable, Anytime you give up that many shots and come out with a win, it’s probably because your goalie had an incredible night.” Flyers Justin Braun gushed.
Despite not hitting net for nearly forty-one minutes, Philadelphia used a monster first period from Hart (17 saves) to earn their second consecutive victory.
To the Action
Justin Braun reaped the reward with Travis Konecny and Scott Laughton bagging his first of two assists with Braun’s fifth at the 4:44 mark. With :51 remaining, it was Oskar Lindblom connecting for his 10th. Help came from Ivan Provorov and Laughton to end the opening stanza with a good sign, a Flyers lead. On to the second period.
It became night-night time for Philadelphia. They would not get a sniff at the Knights net for the remainder of the contest. Evgenii Dadonov (11th) got the best of Hart on a man-up tally assisted by Jack Eichel and Jonathan Marchessault accounting for his team-leading 43rd point. The question is “Can They Hold On?”
Hart continued to seize center stage highlighted by a pair of highlight saves. Max Pacioretti and Jack Eichel were left shaking their heads when Hart stoned each just seconds apart. “He was a battler tonight, he was a competitor. The way he was tracking the puck, keeping himself in position, well-deserved win for him.” Flyers interim Coach Mike Yeo.
Robin Lehner, despite not being tested as much, was himself, quite good stopping 19 of 21 Philly tries. The contest marked the first back-to-back Flyers wins since January 31st February 1st. The longest homestead I’m Flyers history revealed 3 wins with 5 losses. Flyers with a Hart Stopping win.
