The Philadelphia Flyers continued their point streak on Tuesday night, but despite having the lead for most of the game, they could not pull out the second point against the New Jersey Devils in a 5-4 shootout loss.
Let’s get to it.
Nolan Patrick was ready to keep it going on the second line.
The Flyers got things going early on.
What a backhand saucer pass from Giroux.
And an incredible shot by Konecny.
The TK celly!
Wayne Simmonds was called for “high-sticking.”
He wasn’t a fan of the call.
Michal Neuvirth got bowled over by Stefan Noesen, but he was okay.
Alex Lyon is waiting just in case.
Sean Couturier got called for a trip on a power play, negating the man advantage.
There was a bad icing call, but Dave Hakstol made sure the faceoff was at center ice.
The Flyers led 1-0 after one period of play.
Unfortunately the Devils tied it up early in the second period.
Not a great goal for Neuvirth to give up.
It somehow squeaked through.
But the Flyers got it right back in what was a back-and-forth period.
Hard work pays off.
Shayne Gostisbehere and Miles Wood got matching minors, and Wood tried to trash talk Ghost. But Shayne couldn’t hear him.
Then the Flyers got another one.
The fourth line generated a goal with Radko Gudas’ shot making it through!
Goals in back-to-back games for Radko!
But the Devils got it back.
John Moore’s shot made it through after the power play expired.
The Flyers converted on their next power play, though.
Claude Giroux’s shot went off a stick and through Kinkaid.
A great pass by Voracek to set him up.
Then Nico Hischier scored off the faceoff, making it a one-goal game again.
A bad turnover, and bad coverage.
The Flyers led 4-3 after two periods of play.
Miles Wood sped in for a chance early in the 3rd period, but Neuvirth turned him away.
Konecny was hit hard into the boards, but there was no penalty called.
Here’s another look at the hit.
He then sped down the ice and drew a penalty late in the 3rd period, but the Flyers couldn’t convert.
The Devils pulled Kinkaid, and did convert to tie it at 4.
We headed to overtime.
Neuvirth came up with a few big glove saves in the extra session.
Giroux and Voracek had a two-on-one rush, but the pass was broken up.
Kinkaid then stopped Voracek’s point-blank chance.
And again on Provorov in front.
We headed to a shootout.
Drew Stafford was the lone player to score in the shootout, giving the Devils a 5-4 win.
