Playoffs no longer an option for the Flyers with a 5-3 loss. To quote the legend that is Boz Scaggs, “It’s Over” After going 0-9-1 the New Jersey Devils rattled off their second consecutive victory, both against the Flyers, and the 5-3 defeat ended any chance of a playoff appearance for Philadelphia.
Carter Hart has been ruled out for the season so Alex Lyon takes his place and turned aside 14 of the 18 shots he faced. MacKenzie Blackwood had 21 saves but came up big on a few occasions. Yegor Sharangovich led the way for New Jersey with a pair of goals. Pavel Zacha. Jesper Boquist and Jesper Bratt hitting the open net from a bad angle, supplied the offense.
Jake Voracek (2 assists) and Sean Couturier (1g) both teams extended their point streaks to five games. Scott Laughton picked up his first goal in 25 games and Travis Konecny also hit net. So, what now? Is a retooling in the works? A Coaching change? We shall find out. Even though the playoffs no longer being an option you can still get your Flyers coverage by clicking here.
