Flyers Flame out against Calgary 3-2

The Flyers picked up a point against the Calgary Flames at the Wells Fargo Center to hit the halfway point of their season.

Travis Sanheim opened the scoring in the first period with a power play goal as the second unit connected. Sanheim scored by attempting a pass to Jordan Weal, however Flames defender TJ Brodie kicked the puck into his own net to give the Flyers the lead.

Midway through the second, Johnny Gaudreau evened the game beating Carter Hart during four on four play.

The Flyers took the lead in the third period when Flames goaltender David Rittich misfired a pass and planted the puck right on the tape of Travis Konecny who buried the goal to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead.

However, with 4;17 left in regulation, Matthew Tkachuk, tied the game. Tkachuk and Konecny, two noted agitators, both touched off several scrums and disturbances throughout the game to add to their goals.

Despite some late scoring chances, the game went to over time, where a JVR failed backcheck led to a 2 on 1 and TJ Brodie made up for his own goal earlier by scoring the game winner on Carter Hart.

The Flyers dropped the game in overtime, picking up the charity point in the process.

Carter Hart did play a solid game after returning to the lineup after being pulled on New Year’s Eve in his last appearance.

Mike McKenna backed up after being claimed on waivers from Vancouver.

The Flyers play again on Monday against St Louis at the Wells Fargo Center.
