The Philadelphia Flyers were ready to take the series by hand in front of a ruckus crowd at the Wells Fargo Center in a pivotal Game 3. The first period gave Philadelphia fans the best 20 minutes of hockey they had seen from the Flyers this season, yet they trailed at the break 1-0. Things began to unravel in the second period as Pittsburgh took advantage of turnovers, bad penalties and mistakes that the Flyers made.
The lone bright spot in the game was Travis Sanheim’s first career playoff goal, which was a shot from the point that went five-hole through two players and into the net. At the end of the day, the Flyers gave home-ice advantage back to the Penguins with a disappointing 5-1 loss.
