Carter Hart got the start in net and was looking to stay perfect. The Flyers were aggressive in the first period and got out to a good start, but we’re outmatched in the second, where the Blue Jackets scored three-unanswered goals to head into the third with a two-goal lead. James van Riemsdyk would score late in the third to cut it to a one-score game, but Sergei Bobrovsky stood tall.
The Flyers lost 4-3, but another young player had a milestone moment as Phil Varone picked up his first NHL goal, a rebound in front. The Flyers will get right back at it on Sunday night against the New York Rangers looking to go into the holiday on a high note.
Our photographer Heather Barry was there to capture the action Saturday afternoon with fan favorite shots of Santa Gritty, Carter Hart, Travis Konecny, Claude Giroux, and more!
