Sports Talk with Brodes: Flyers Bounce Back Yet Again & Beat the Panthers
The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Florida Panthers by a score of 6-2. This was another bounce-back win for this team. Whenever something goes wrong, they always find a way to get back on track instantly.
The Flyers grabbed an early 3-0 lead thanks to James Van Riemsdyk, Tyler Pitlick, and Nicolas Aube-Kubel. This forced Joel Quenneville to pull Sergei Bobrovsky for the start of the second period.
Scott Laughton netted one late in the second frame to make it 4-0 as Van Riemsdyk delivered an outstanding pass from behind the net.
Early in the third period, it was all Panthers. They scored two goals on five shots to crack into the lead. The momentum was all in their favor, but Carter Hart made a HUGE stop just around halfway through the period which could have been the difference in the game.
From there, Claude Giroux delievered a pass to Sean Couturier who absolutely sniped the twine and gave the Flyers breathing room. Robert Hagg cashed in on the powerplay super late for even more insurance. Hagg has been playing great and speaking of a defenseman, Travis Sanhiem is clearly bothered by some sort of injury that will be announced soon.
