Two games is a mere blip on the radar in an 82-game season, but the Philadelphia Flyers aren’t always the most patient types. So, with that, maybe Tuesday presents rare reasons for optimism?
Giroux collected two assists, Jakub Voracek found the net twice and Scott Hartnell even had an assist in a return to form for the Flyers’ captain and his running mates (Hartnell in 2011-12 and Voracek in 2012-13, respectively). Mason stopped all 24 shots for a shutout.
On the other end, Ottawa’s four-game winning streak was snapped in Craig Anderson‘s return from a neck injury. He was beaten five times on 31 shots.
Sens coach Paul MacLean insists that Anderson is the No. 1 guy, but after Robin Lehner‘s strong week, you have to wonder if his grip might loosen ever so slightly.
