The Philadelphia Flyers skated into the St. Pete Times Forum on Wednesday night in Tampa, Florida, with captain Chris Pronger taking the ice after a six-game layoff due to injury.
It wasn’t enough.
Neither team was able to find the net in the first period, despite spending their share of time in the penalty box. It was until the second stanza when Philadelphia winger Scott Hartnell (assisted by Jakub Voracek and Kimmo Timonen) broke open a 0-0 tie with a power play goal at the 9:34 mark.
Tampa Bay wins 2-1 and improves to 8-5-2 with the victory while Philadelphia falls to 8-4-3 in defeat.
