The Philadelphia Flyers rolled over a downtrodden Toronto Maple Leafs squad, 7-1, on Thursday night. The Leafs, now losers of 12 straight games at home, managed just 17 shots on the night, all but one of which were saved by Sergei Bobrovsky. On the other end of the ice, Jussi Rynnas recorded a .767 GAA in his first career NHL start, saving just 23 of 30 shots faced.
Rynnas was in net because regular goaltender Jonas Gustavsson took a shot off his left knee in warm-ups and had to be helped off the ice. Several Flyers had big nights with the fresh netminder in place. Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds both scored twice, while Danny Briere added four assists. Both of Schenn's goals came in the first 12 minutes of the game to put Philly up 2-0 early. Matt Read, Eric Wellwood and Jakub Voracek also added tallies.
Leafs' fans began chanting "Let's go Blue Jays!" once things got ugly. It was just that kind of night, and it has been that kind of season for Toronto. As for the Flyers, they already have their playoff spot solidified. Philadelphia will host the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, before paying a visit to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
