From the Department of Redundancy, the Philadelphia Flyers lose, 4-1. This time it was the 30-14-6 St. Louis Blues. Philadelphia has lost six straight and dropped to 15-26- 10.
Once again, they trailed after the opening period when Braydon Schenn notched his 15th. The Flyers were outscored, 26-12 in the first period thus far in 2022. A Scoreless second period gave the fans a glimmer of hope. Oskar Lindblom nailed his 8th with help from Travis Konecny and Travis Sanheim at the 8:09 mark.
The euphoria squelched :42 later when Vladimir Tarasenko notched his team-leading 19th. The mandatory pull the goalie move backfired with Ivan Barbashev scoring at 19:07, followed by Brandon Saad with three seconds left.
