When the regular season ends, if the Flyers are somehow still playing and one of 16 teams in the playoffs, it is games like the one on Thursday that you can point to as the reason.
The Flyers faced the daunting task of playing from behind on the St. Louis Blues. The Blues entered the game with a 28-4-2 record when scoring first and a 25-1-2 record when leading after two periods.
The Flyers allowed the Blues to both score first and hold the lead after two periods.
But the third period belonged to the Flyers, who used gritty play to score two goals and add an empty-net goal to seal a huge win over another top team in the NHL.
