Flyers Streak ends with a penalty shootout loss to Canada

For most of the night, Flyers are relying on their keeper, hoping to steal a game that shouldn’t have to be stolen. In the end, they could not escape the penalty shootout.

The Canadaiens won three games for the Flyers and seven losses of their own in a 3-2 penalty shootout on Thursday night.

After a few quality swings by the Flyers to start the game, a power match in Montreal sent the Canadians rolling. They didn’t score thanks to their human advantage, but continued to press and take advantage right after.

A distance shot by Brett Kulak was deflected by Artturi Lehkonen and the past Carter Hart put Montreal 1-0 up at 5:20.

For the rest of the time, the Flyers chased the game. Montreal flooded the attack area when the Flyers controlled the ball poorly and looked sluggish. Over 20 minutes, the score is 19-8 Montreal.

The second phase started with many of the same things, before the Flyers had a great change from Max Willman that made up the score. Willman parried a shot that was blocked, but seconds later he poked back and picked his spot, continuing to go high. Cayden Primeau for the second goal of his career at 2:20.

Canadianiens picked up the pace again, continuing to push and create opportunities. Hart continues to be the difference.

With a minute of play in this time, the Flyers took the lead from another unlikely source. Jackson Cates came on in a two-on-one situation and hit a shot that beat Primeau on his first NHL goal to make it 2-1.

Over two periods, Montreal led 30-22 in the number of shots.

The Canadian finished the game with 5:39 to play this time around. Face-to-face, the Canadaiens got the ball toward the net and a rebound was available for Laurent Dauphin even things up at two o’clock.

It was a time of forced overtime, where the Flyers had a strong play and were unable to score. In the penalty shootout, Jonathan Drouin conceded the only goal in the penalty shootout, as the Flyers were stopped all three times by Primeau.

Hart finished with 38 saves. Primeau made 37 saves in the win.

The Flyers return to the ice on Saturday night when they face the Ottawa Senators at 7pm
