The Philadelphia Flyers kicked off 2018 with an embarrassing effort in front of the Wells Fargo Center crowd on Tuesday night, falling to their biggest rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-1.
Philly fell asleep in the middle of the second period, surrendering four goals in four minutes to the Pens, including a pair of goals to the fourth line, allowing both Ryan Reaves and Tom Kuhnackl each to tally their second goals of the year. Reaves and Kuhnackl combined for four points on the evening.
Michal Neuvirth saw his first action in a month, relieving Brian Elliott to start the third period, but the change did little to spark the Flyers as they settled for perimeter shots all night and did little to threaten Pittsburgh’s three goal lead before Jamie Oleksiak netted his second goal of the season at 14:04, just to add insult to injury.
