After a second period that saw the Flyers surrender three goals, Craig Berube used the intermission to send a message to his team, still in search of its first win.
When the Flyers emerged from the locker room in the third, Ray Emery was between the pipes to relieve Steve Mason. Mason had allowed four goals on 18 shots in the first two periods. All four goals were impossible to stop.
But Mason was the victim in this message-sending act. And the Flyers response was a three-goal third period to force overtime. Two late penalties for the Stars led to Claude Giroux's heroics in overtime of the Flyers 6-5 win on Saturday.
