In another tight, fast-paced game, the Philadelphia Flyers fell just short of extending their winning streak to five games. This was essentially a four-point game against the New York Rangers for divisional and wild card standing, so although the Flyers can claim a point, that is cold comfort.
The Flyers got off to a good start, taking a 1-0 lead as Brayden Schenn slammed home a sneaky Sean Couturier feed. The Rangers bounced back with a power-play goal, and took the lead 2-1 in the second period.
The Flyers came back hard in the third period, finally tying the game on a power-play goal. The game eventually went to overtime where the Flyers had most of the possession, before slipping into a shootout. As is too often the case, the Flyers made a poor showing in the shootout allowing the Rangers to get two big points in the standings with a 3-2 win.
