After playing an even game for the first 10 minutes, the Flyers continued a run of hot starts and good goal scoring from all sources. Mark Streit and Wayne Simmonds scored to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead.
That would be the score after another solid 20 minutes to open a game. For the fourth straight game, the Flyers had scored multiple first-period goals.
The next 40 minutes were not nearly as good. Despite a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night, the Flyers fourth straight, it proved to be an off night.
