Postgame 11/25

The Philadelphia Flyers held the Vancouver Canucks to 1 goal on 17 shots on Monday night, defeating an offense averaging over three goals per game, at the Wells Fargo Center.

Carter Hart wasn’t busy, but made 16 saves, including a few big ones late, and the much-improved penalty kill shut out Vancouver’s top-five power play on two attempts. The Flyers are playing incredible team defense right now, and it starts with Hart and Selke Trophy favorite Sean Couturier.

Couts potted his seventh goal of the year in the second period to erase a deficit, won 57% of his faceoffs, accounted for four shot attempts, and posted a 62.07 CF% at 5v5, including 73.33% in 9:42 against Elias Pettersson (thank you, Natural Stat Trick).

That’s all the writing I feel like doing. Now listen to the postgame podcast. It was fun and upbeat. But two goals still isn’t enough.
