The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 with a stellar comeback in the third period and a gutsy effort by Steve Mason. They struggled early on, but came back and got a huge win. Let’s get to the GIFs.
Shayne Gostisbehere came to play, and this sweet little deke set up a scoring chance.
And this deke, back and forth, then huge speed burst to the net resulted in another really dangerous play.
He was also destroying hockey pucks. This one was saved by Varlamov.
This one wasn’t after a tip by Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.
Steve Mason also played really strong, with a ton of stops early on and a gritty effort to end the game.
He saved two pucks here, then got a little help from his friend on the third one.
He was strong on this one when he got bowled over
He was clearly hurting a bit at the end of the game, and sat down in a big sigh of relief after the empty-netter.
He sounded upbeat after the game and like he would be right back in net, so let’s hope it’s just a bit of soreness.
The Flyers were down 2-1, but then Radko Gudas showed the new and improved Radko Gudas yet again.
And just 18 seconds later, Captain Claude came to the rescue for the game-winner.
What a stud.
Then a great effort from Ryan White got him tripped on a breakaway with an empty net, which is an automatic goal.
Aww yea, Ryan White celly alert!
Let the celebration begin.
What a comeback. What a game. What a team.
