Cole Caufield scored with 1.9 seconds remaining in regulation, forcing overtime and eventually a shootout, where Nick Suzuki scored the lone goal to hand the Flyers their sixth straight loss, 5-4, on Saturday night.
If not for excellent goaltending again, the Flyers would not have been in position to win this game. They would certainly have not gained a point in the standings, which could certainly prove valuable later. Despite that, it is hardly a moral victory for the Flyers. Another sloppy game is showing a troubling trend as a difficult month is just getting started.
The Flyers have the 23th overall pick in the NHL Draft on Tuesday night, and it marks the latest the Flyers have picked in the first round of the draft in over a decade. Despite that, the 23rd pick can still produce some high-end talent.
