A sweep in the desert!
The Philadelphia Flyers took care of business in Vegas with a 4-1 win against the Golden Knights. Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny each had huge games, and Michal Neuvirth was the difference with a fantastic game in net.
Let’s get to it.
Michal Neuvirth was ready to take the reigns.
The boys were looking for two more points in the desert.
Michael Raffl set the tone with a big hit early on.
Neuvirth came up with a good glove save, but Brandon Manning was called for a weak penalty.
Jonathan Marchessault had a great scoring chance, but he missed it high.
Brayden McNabb converted on his chance though, to give Vegas a 1-0 lead.
Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had a great chance to make it 2-0 on a two-on-oh rush, but he passed it to…..nobody.
The Flyers then tied it up.
A great passing play!
Celly hard, Coots.
The Flyers and Golden Knights were tied at 1 after one period of play.
Alex Lyon was called up for the game, but he didn’t know what to do without a door to open.
No one makes Coots bleed his own blood.
The Golden Knights were putting on all types of pressure in the second period, but Neuvirth kept the Flyers in it.
Then the Flyers took the lead.
Another great pass by Konecny led to a Couturier assist on MacDonald’s goal!
Just like they drew it up!
They weren’t done there.
Sean Couturier made a great power move to the net, and Giroux potted the rebound!
What a move!
The Flyers led 3-1 after two periods of play.
Michal Neuvirth came up huge for the Flyers in the third period.
Another big save by Neuvirth.
And again after a turnover.
In the final minutes he came up with a big blocker save, keeping the Flyers up by two goals.
Then Radko Gudas hit the empty net from long distance!
Gotta love it!
Radko for three.
A sweep in the desert!
Goalie love is the best love.
Business as usual for Captain Claude.
