The Philadelphia Flyers got out to a great start against the New York Islanders on Thursday night in Philadelphia. They scored a power-play goal to take a 1-0 lead after controlling play for most of the period, and then Travis Konecny got the fans into it with a fight.
He took down Shane Prince with ease.
Wayne Simmonds and Nolan Patrick were loving it.
Wayne cannot get enough.
Konecny is a smaller guy, but boy is he feisty. He showed off his physical side with a great fight, and his teammates loved it.
The Flyers and Islanders were tied at 1 after one period of play.
