Lost in the shuffle of all the excitement that was the Philadelphia Flyers Sunday afternoon showdown against the Boston Bruins was the play of Maxime Talbot.
After the team allowed the Burins to score 50 seconds into the game, it was Talbot who brought them back just moments later.
Not to mention that it wasn’t an isolated incident.
After the team gave up two more goals prior to the end of the first, gained a lead on the back of a Scott Hartnell natural hat trick in the second and then allowed the Bruins to regain the lead in the third, it was Talbot who tied the game once again.
It’s fair to say that this past weekend was probably the best weekend Scott Hartnell has had in a long time.
“Five goals in two games,” he said on Sunday. “It's a good weekend for anybody.”
On Saturday afternoon, he scored two goals against the New Jersey Devils. Both goals came on the power play, with the first being the eventual game-winner.
Then on Sunday, against the best defensive team in the league the Boston Bruins, Hartnell scored a natural hat trick in the second period to give the Flyers a one goal lead after the team began the period down by two.
