The Philadelphia Flyers returned home to open the new year. A matchup against the hated Pittsburgh Penguins and an opportunity to move within two points of the final wild card spot at this point in the season.
The game was scoreless through one period of play, but a brutal second period – only highlighted by a Jordan Weal goal – led to a tough 5-1 blowout at home against Pittsburgh. The Flyers were outplayed by the Penguins’ fourth line and couldn’t muster up anything.
Let’s take a look through the lens of our photographer Heather Barry‘s best photos from a tough loss to the Penguins.
