Flyers work overtime to pull out 3-2 win. Apparently, the script is set in stone as the Philadelphia Flyers squeeze out a 3-2 Overtime victory over the rival Islanders.
The 6-2-1 Fly dudes find themselves in second place after holding on against The 3-4-1 Islanders in a Saturday evening contest at the Wells Fargo Center. The continued issues are still at the forefront with an anemic offense that only mustered 17 Shots on goal.
Once again, team Philadelphia started off hot when Jake Voracek notched his second of the season. When he converted a pretty tic- tac tow tally to give the good guys a 1-0 edge. Ten minutes later it would be Kevin Hayes’ turn when he put a wrister behind New York netminder, Seymon Varlamov and it looked as if Philly was in control.
Save your breath fella. The Gorton Fishermen woke up and the Flyer defense went back to normal, mostly asleep, and allowed Jordan Eberle to do his nails and hair before he was unabated and put one behind Carter Hart. Hart has been victimized by staying a bit too deep in his crease. Once again, paid the price when Scott Mayfield beat him with a mid-range wrist shot then knotted it up.
A scoreless final period took us to the Overtime portion. The Ghost, Shayne Gostibehere fed Scott Laughton who went on a beautiful gallop to light the lamp and literally steal a victory. Tongues would have been wagging if fans were in attendance. This was due to Head Coach, Alain Vigneault opting to scratch Travis Konecny and dressing Samuel Morin.
The question is… was it a one-game thing? Tune in Sunday evening to find out… Same Flyers time… same Flyers channel… will Edge of Philly have the recap? Is Santa Claus fat?
