Sports Talk with Brodes: Kevin Hayes Wins it in OT for the Flyers in Columbus!
Wow, the Philadelphia Flyers went into Columbus and found a way to snag another two points as they win 4-3 in overtime. The Blue Jackets gained a 2-0 lead about 10 minutes into the hockey game thanks to Oliver Bjorkstrand and Nick Foligno. Foligno scored an absolute beauty by putting his stick in between his legs and ripping it by Brian Elliott.
The Flyers responded when Travis Konecny drove the net hard, Travis Sanhiem threw a biscuit on net and it hit off Konecny as he was falling over near the crease.
Three minutes into the second period, Columbus jumped back out to a two-goal lead until Nicolas Aube-Kubel entered the zone and shot the puck through a screen to find twine. Less than two minutes later, Claude Giroux put a blistering clap bomb on net for a power play goal to tie the game.
Elliot started the game out slow, but he was tremendous in the third period making highlight-reel saves. He was absolutely huge down the stretch. In overtime, Kevin Hayes took ice, made the Blue Jackets mess up due to a bad switch defensively, and shot it past Elvis Merzļikins.
The Flyers are now third in the Metropolitan Division with 75 points.
