The Philadelphia Flyers failed in their attempt to end their losing streak, as they fell 5-2 to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.
The Travises were ready to go.
Concentration is key for Claude.
The Flyers had a chance to get on the board early, but Shayne Gostisbehere’s blast rang off the bar.
They got one in shortly after, though.
Ivan Provorov’s shot banked in off a defender in front for a goal!
A two-game streak for Provorov.
But it didn’t last long.
Daniel Sedin made it 1-1.
Then 19 seconds later, Brock Boeser made it 2-1.
Konecny nearly connected here, but no dice.
Gostisbehere’s power-play shot rebounded in front, but Wayne Simmonds couldn’t get his stick on it.
The Flyers trailed 2-1 after one period of play.
Travis Sanheim got called for an iffy slashing penalty.
And the Canucks converted to make it 3-1.
Then Konecny got stopped on a breakaway.
Simmonds couldn’t bury a chance in front.
But Sven Baertschi buried a rebound to make it 4-1.
And Brian Elliott came in.
Claude Giroux got slashed on the hand, but there was no call.
The Flyers trailed 4-1 after two periods of play.
Brian Elliott came up with a few saves in the 3rd, including this one on Bo Horvat.
Jake Voracek got the Flyers back into it with a goal midway through the period.
He blasted Giroux’s feed to give the Flyers a chance.
A cannon from Jake.
A nice zone entry and screen by Sanheim.
But it wasn’t enough.
Loui Eriksson put the nail in the coffin with an empty-netter to make it 5-2.
