The Flyers had been out-shot, 13-8, by the Blues in the first period. Another mistake by the power play allowed St. Louis to also score the lone goal of the period while short-handed.
It felt like the Flyers were reverting back to bad habits. A short-handed goal scored by the opposition in a game that was clearly going to be tight for scoring. Penalties all over the place throughout the game, including four by captain Claude Giroux. From the Flyers standpoint, it will go down as another sloppy game.
But the Orange and Black also managed to rally from poor play in the first 20 minutes to generate chances in the last 40. Determination and hard work in puck battles paid dividends as the Flyers claimed their fifth straight victory, 4-1, over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
