The losing streak is over, as the Philadelphia Flyers won their first game since November 8th, defeating the Calgary Flames 5-2 on Monday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Despite the win, which saw the Flyers net three goals over a 71-second span midway through the second period, the Flyers are still surrounded by questions as they look to turn their season around with two more games in Western Canada before returning home next week.
Travis Sanheim played one 18-second shift in the third period, Nolan Patrick got a pair of power play shifts during a five-minute major penalty against Calgary’s Travis Hamonic for targetting Dale Weise’s head but was otherwise stapled to the bench as Philly clung to its two- and three-goal leads in the third.
Travis Konecny was used even less than those two rookies. TK didn’t see a shift after he was on the ice for Sean Monahan’s goal with 1:15 left in the second period.
Check out Bill Matz’s reaction to the end of the streak and Dave Hakstol’s coaching decisions on this edition of BSH Radio Facebook Live Postgame.
