Anthony Duclair added his 24th on a Panther man advantage at 6:59.

Reinhart got his hat trick with an empty net marker to close out the 6-3 win and give Florida forty wins.

“Before the shift, I told him, ‘If you’re open, I’m going to pass it to you, it was great. He’s been playing so well this year.” Jonathan Huberdeau.

Huberdeau had a wide open Flyers net but deferred to Reinhart.


Carter Hart held his ground posting 31 saves with Sergei Bobrovsky stopping 34 to keep his hot streak going to 18-3-1 in his last 22 games
