The Philadelphia Flyers have won a hockey game! The orange and black made their preseason debut at the Wells Fargo Center and they walked off in grand fashion. Travis Konecny’s overtime winner was the headline, but it was a great game all around by many of the kids looking to make the roster.
Brian Elliott was strong throughout the game. He came up big on a breakaway here.
And then again on a 2-on-1 chance.
Oh yeah, there was a Sam Morin fight in the middle. He took down Bobby Farnham after this hit.
The Rangers took a 2-0 lead, but it didn’t last too long.
Morin got beat here, but recovered in time to disrupt Buchnevich’s attempt.
Then he got the Flyers on the board with a snipe!
A great shot from the big man!
A great setup by Claude Giroux on the goal.
The Flyers trailed 2-1 after one period of play.
But they tied it up early in the second.
Scott Laughton and Michael Raffl worked a great give-and-goal to tie the game!
Laughton to Raffl, back to Laughton.
Just tap it in.
Andrew MacDonald is still bad, unfortunately.
Jake Voracek fed Claude Giroux with a nice pass, but he was stopped.
Travis Konecny will always be a talker.
The Flyers and Rangers were tied at two through two periods of play.
Travis Sanheim put on a Gostisbeheresque move in the third to create a scoring chance.
Brian Elliott continued to come up big on the penalty kill.
Then the game got a little Swede.
Oskar Lindblom tipped home Andrew MacDonald’s point shot for a 3-2 lead.
Swede hands, kid!
The first NHL goal of Lindblom’s career.
The Rangers tied it up late in the period, but Travis Konecny was feeling it.
And he put his money where his mouth is.
He won the game in overtime on this great play.
From the impossible angle. But nothing is impossible for TK.
All the love for TK.
A great game, a great win.
