This Philadelphia Flyers team is looking every bit like the one who won the Eastern conference last season. Maybe even better… Mike Richards and Claude Giroux both scored twice as the Flyers rolled over the Florida Panthers 5-2. The relentless Philly offense peppered Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen with 42 shots.
Rookie netminder Sergei Bobrovsky got his 10th win of the season notching 34 saves and getting his first NHL assist. Jeff Carter also had an assist just hours after inking a blockbuster 11-year, $58 million extension that will keep him in orange and black until he’s 37 years old.
The Flyers have won eight of their last nine and you’d have to go back to Oct. 25 to find the last time the Flyers didn’t come out of a game with at least a point. They lead the Atlantic division by five points. Next up are the Ottawa Senators, who visit the Wells Fargo Center on Monday.
