The Philadelphia Flyers bounced back for a big win in Game 2 of their first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. They got goals from five different players and Brian Elliott made 34 saves in a 5-1 win to even the series at one game a piece.
There were a lot of criticisms and doubts about the Flyers’ chances after their blowout loss in Game 1, and captain Claude Giroux had a message for them after a win in Game 2.
“It was better. We played a team game. We battled hard and [Brian Elliott] played a great game. So for all you doubters out there, there you go.”
What a legend.
The Flyers will come home to the Wells Fargo Center for Game 3 on Sunday afternoon.
