The Flyers looked incredibly comfortable deep into the first period of last night’s game against the Islanders. An early 3-0 lead set the tone for a team desperate to counter-punch, but as time went on, the foot came off the gas. New York forced their way back into the game, pushing it to overtime. The Flyers came out on top all thanks to a goal from a player who continues his ascent to stardom – Philippe Myers.
Sean Couturier was the man who fed the young defenseman, who picked his spot perfectly to send it flying past Greiss, who had saved 20 shots in relief of Varlamov.
