In two seasons as a Flyer, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has established a reputation for doing the little things that don't necessarily reflect on the scoresheet -- taking the tougher-assignment faceoffs, killing penalties and developing a steady two-way game. His role as a fourth-line grinder implies that he doesn't always get the glory, goal prowess and scoring opportunities as a top-six forward -- though there are, of course, several exceptions.
Bellemare got to briefly deviate from that role on Thursday, giving the Flyers (27-22-11) their game-winning tally 3:21 into the third period in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild. The goal was Bellemare's fourth of the season, and second game-winner of his NHL career.
Michal Neuvirth held down the fort in goal for the Flyers, making 24 saves (and several highlight-reel stops along the way) en route to his 14th win of the season.
