The result may have been a 2-1 shootout loss for the Flyers, snapping a four-game winning streak, but it was once again a small moral victory early in the season, a game where they at least showed they can hang with a top contender in the league.
With goals from Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier, the Flyers managed to secure their second shootout win in eight days, this time beating the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 in the shootout and 3-2 in the game. Observations from the Flyers shootout win over Toronto.
When Monday came and went and the Flyers did nothing but address organizational depth, it was telling. For prospects like Morgan Frost and Joel Farabee, it should be motivating. It means there will be an opportunity to make the Flyers roster this season. There will be an open competition.
