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.

More Things to Think About

Shots on Goal were 26-26. Martin Jones played well, allowing two goals on 24 tries For the Blues, Jordan Binnington stopped 25 of 26. Carter Hart scratched due to an eye infection.

From the “this sums up this debacle of a season.” The team gave out fanny packs. Big deal, right? The fanny packs ARE TOO BIG AND VIOLATE WELLS FARGO PROTOCOL! You can’t make this up. Stop me if you heard this. The Flyers take another “L.” Now that is redundancy at its finest.
