The Philadelphia Flyers returned home after a big win in Pittsburgh as they played host to the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was 90’s night in the Wells Fargo Center, and the orange and black were looking to build momentum heading into a tough month of December. Claude Giroux opened the scoring on a 2-on-1. Sean Couturier thought he had a goal off a defender, but it was reversed after a coaches’ challenge. Down two goals late in the third, Travis Sanheim struck twice to tie things up and send the game into overtime. In the extra period, a costly turnover would lead to the eventual game-winning goal, just ten seconds after the puck dropped. The Flyers lose 4-3. (Hey, at least we got a point).
While the outcome was not what fans wanted to see, our photographer Heather Barry takes us the best photos from the game featuring Travis Sanheim, Wayne Simmonds, Travis Konecny, and more!
