The Philadelphia Flyers bounced back from their winless California road trip with a spirited performance against the Montreal Canadiens. It may have been a case of good timing, catching the Canadiens at a time when they haven't been playing very well, but the Flyers definitely played with more jump.
The new and loaded top line of Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds consistently created chances, but secondary figures provided all the scoring.
At one point, the shots on goal were 22-7 in favor of the Flyers, but Michal Neuvirth had a shaky game and allowed two goals on deflected shots. The victory came under greater peril when the Canadiens added a third goal in the final minute, but the Flyers were able to hold on for the 4-3 win.
