This line was sensational!
Brian Elliott was in the pipes and he did everything you could ask for. The penalty kill went 4-4, but the powerplay went 0-6. The Flyers are going to need to generate on the powerplay if they want to succeed in the postseason.
Alain Vigneault took James van Riemsdyk out of the lineup to wake him up. Joel Farabee slid into the Michael Raffl's spot since his injury. Farabee and Aube-Kubel had noticeable chemistry all game long.
