No Practice No Problem????

Flyers head coach John Tortorella canceled Monday’s practice 15 minutes before it started. When pressed about it the Flyers Head Coach cited that he felt his team was a bit tired and had been playing a heavy load as of late. Numerous Flyers players ensured the assembled media would be ready to go on Tuesday night.

Michael Bunting had a goal and an assist, and the Hurricanes beat the Flyers 4-1 on Tuesday night. Seth Jarvis and former Flyer Brenden Lemieux also scored as the Hurricanes won for the fourth time in five games. Sebastian Aho had two assists and Pyotr Kochetkov made 27 saves.

Travis Konecny scored for Philadelphia. Lemieux snapped a 1-1 tie with 6:35 left in the second period. He capitalized on Scott Laughton’s turnover in front of the Flyer’s net and shot past Flyer’s goalie Carter Hart. Jarvis notched his team-leading 18th point and ninth goal with 3:26 to play, beating Hart with a wrist shot from a sharp angle.

The Hurricanes finished the scoring 42 seconds later when Jesper Kotkaniemi converted an empty netter. The Hurricanes jumped in front 5:39 into the opening period. Bunting got his fifth of the season from close range. The Flyers tied it with 12:46 to play in the second. Konecny beat Kochetkov on a breakaway, shooting past the goalie’s glove side.

The Hurricanes nearly took a two-goal lead with 8:10 remaining, but Teuvo Teravainen’s wrist shot from the slot clanged off the post. Cam Atkinson had perhaps the best opportunity to tie the contest before the Hurricanes’ third goal, but Kochetkov used his left pad to stop Atkinson’s backhanded try from the side of the net.
