Postgame reaction following more late-game heroics against the Penguins

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

They did it again!

Yours, mine, and our Philadelphia Flyers came back to erase a third period deficit in the waning moments of regulation and steal an overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins once again. The orange and black may not be going to the postseason, but a couple of exciting victories in the Keystone State Rivalry in the last few months have done a lot to dull the pain of another season that will end sooner than many anticipated in October.

James van Riemsdyk scored his 25th goal of the season in the final 20 seconds of regulation to tie the game, and Sean Couturier ended it four seconds before the shootout with his 29th.

Carter Hart looked like the Carter Hart we all fell in love with a few weeks ago, stopping 41 of 42 Pittsburgh shots, including all 18 of the Pens’ attempts in the middle frame to keep the game scoreless through 40 minutes, and earn first star of the game honors.

Listen to the postgame for 30 minutes of incredibly entertaining hockey chatting.
