Broad Street Hockey: Flyers Win As A Team

The Flyers crushed the Montreal Canadiens 6-0 Sunday by playing as a team, according to Broad Street Hockey. They got scoring from everywhere, solid goaltending from whoever was in net, and just did what they had to do as a team. There were no one-man efforts.

But in the first period, the Flyers were perhaps lucky to get out with the lead. The Flyers weren’t nearly as sharp as they could have been and they allowed to get several nice scoring chances. Luckily, Leighton was up to the task, stopping all of them to keep the Habs off the board.

As a result, the Flyers were able to get out of the first period with the 1-0 lead, and from there, they took over. Power plays early in the second period gave them the chance to blow things wide open, and it was a big, orange party in South Philadelphia from there on. It’s just one game, but it’s one game that tastes real sweet.
