In overtime, the newest member to the Flyers leadership group stepped in and did his part. Kevin Hayes scored on a breakaway at 3:53 of overtime to lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Ducks on Sunday night.
It was far from a perfect game, but with the help of great goaltending and some timely scoring in the second and third periods, the Flyers were able to snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers have a 10-2-4 record on home ice and three of the next four games will be there, allowing them a chance to put an end to the losing streak and return to the win column. Their first chance is on Tuesday night when they face the Anaheim Ducks.
The Flyers acquired goalie Dustin Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations. Tokarski has been assigned to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. In addition, the Phantoms traded goalie Leland Irving to the San Diego Gulls for future considerations.
