Seven shots. That was all the Flyers had to show for 40 minutes of play against the Carolina Hurricanes. No one would blame you if you had already chalked this up as the ninth loss in 10 games for the Flyers, with more on the way.
But the Flyers still had a chance, down one entering the final period thanks to a distant shot from along the boards by Luke Schenn that found its way into the net, cutting a 2-0 Hurricanes lead to 2-1.
The Flyers turned in the best period of hockey they have played in the last two weeks, bar none. 11 shots taken on Cam Ward, three taken by Carolina. Only one shot went in, Shayne Gostisbehere's shot from the point that hit off of Wayne Simmonds and into the net. It set up overtime, where the Flyers didn't let the crucial second point get away.
