Sports Talk with Brodes: 8 Straight for the Flyers & Tied for First Place in Metro!
Make it EIGHT STRAIGHT for the Philadelphia Flyers as they take care of business on their home ice against the Carolina Hurricanes. They are now tied with the Washington Capitals with 87 points at the top of the Metropolitan Division, but due to the tie break, the Caps are technicality still in first.
Who cares though. The fact that this is even the conversation is beautiful.
Carter Hart continues his tear at the Wells Fargo Center and is now 19-2-2 at home with 1.64 goals against average and .942 save percentage.
To start off the scoring, Ivan Provorov joins the rush and throws the puck on Alex Nedeljkovic, who leaves a juicy rebound for Provorov to put in the net for a 1-0 lead. Scott Laughton and Derek Grant record the assists.
In the second period, Laughton, Tyler Pitlick, and Michael Raffl move the puck BEAUTIFULLY through the zones resulting in a 2-0 lead.
Justin Williams cracks into the lead in the third due to bad puck-luck for the Flyers.
Instantly they respond. That's what makes this team so special.
Nate Thompson finds Nicolas Aube-Kubel who throws the biscuit on net from an awkward angle and it finds it's way in! 26 seconds later, Sean Couturier scores from Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux.
That's all she wrote! A 4-1 win and the Flyers will host the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.
