In Carter Hart‘s return to the net, he stopped 28 of 27 shots to help secure the end of the Flyer’s 6-game losing streak. Hart wasn’t the only one coming back this morning. Joel Farabee played his first game since early January. Farabee put up an assist in about 20 minutes of icetime.
I just wrote the other day about how I wasn’t making this an automatic loss in my book because I wanted to have some hope. I’m happy I kept that. Claude Giroux started things off quick for the Flyers. He scored the first goal of the game just 11 seconds into the period.
With about 3:30 remaining in the first period, Zack MacEwen decided to get the boys a bit going and got himself in a little tilt against Tom Wilson. Gotta live Big Mac standing tall for his team.
Early in the second period, Washinton was on the power play and get one of their own off TJ Oshie. For the remainder of the game though, it was Hart making amazing saves to keep the Flyers up one.
The Flyers desperately needed this one to save themselves from 7 straight losses. Things aren’t exactly looking up yet. The Flyers still went 2-4-2 in February. They’ll have a jammed-packed March. They’ll play 15 games, 7 at home and 8 away. The goal is just going to be to get more than 2 wins. Of course I slept through this win so hopefully, we get to see another in their next game on March 1st against the Edmonton Oilers.
