Sam Ersson stopped all 33 shots faced in the Flyers 1-0 shutout win over the Detroit Red Wings, extending their points streak to eight games.
Another late push wasn’t enough on the scoreboard, as the Colorado Avalanche claimed a 3-2 result and handed the Flyers their fourth straight loss and 16th in their last 18 games on Tuesday night.

The Flyers were locked in a close game with the Avalanche until the bitter end, falling in their second game of the season by a score of 5-2 in Denver on Saturday night.
