Flyers Sneak Away From Colorado With a Point

The Philadelphia Flyers hit the ice in Denver Monday night seeking another win streak after Saturday’s 6-0 thrashing by the Boston Bruins. Instead, they snuck out of the Pepsi Center with a point in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Philadelphia (20-8-4) struck first when Scott Hartnell scored with 1:29 remaining in the first period. On the power play goal, Jaromir Jagr saved the puck from leaving the offensive zone and quickly fired it near the net. Jakub Voracek, who has played spectacularly lately, shuffled a pass across the goal-mouth for Hartnell.

The tally was Hartnell’s 16th goal of the season, tying him with Claude Giroux as the highest goal scorer on the Flyers this season. It was also his seventh power play goal on the year.

Colorado (16-17-1) took the game’s momentum in the second period with strong contributions from their young core.

Betting on Briere

With all of the moves made by the Flyers this offseason, a lot of attention has been paid to the changing of the guard from Jeff Carter and Mike Richards to Claude Giroux and James van Riemsdyk. However, while many are assessing whether Giroux can take over for Richards or if van Riemsdyk is up to the challenge of replacing Carter, an older member of the team is flying under the radar.
