In overtime, the Rangers continued to pepper the Flyers net with shots, six in total, and the last one with 53 seconds remaining in overtime finally beat Hart. Chris Kreider had the only goal as the Flyers fell to the Rangers, 1-0.
Kevin Hayes scored in the third round of the shootout and Martin Jones capped off a strong game with a save on Filip Chytil to secure the Flyers first shootout win of the season, a 4-3 decision over the New York Rangers.
It’s really become a familiar pattern for a team that is consistently fragile, just waiting for the next thing to go wrong rather than doing the things that can help it keep going right. Just like on Thursday night, the Rangers skill and talent levels became too much in a game that was certainly competitive, but not deserving of the final result.
