A three-goal period got them in front, and after the Flyers tied it up early in the third, two more goals sealed the Flyers’ fate in a 5-3 loss to the Ducks at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.
The Flyers and Ducks will meet for the final time this season on Saturday night.
The Ducks are an upstart team with a ton of potential. That’s easy to see. They showed plenty of it from the youngsters still in the lineup, ending the Flyers road trip on a sour note as tougher matchups are ahead.
The Ducks were in the same position, with several players also out on COVID protocol, but that didn’t stop them from showing just how much talent they possess. Troy Terry scored a hat trick as the Flyers finished a four-game road trip with a third straight loss, 4-1, in Anaheim.
The four-game road trip out of the holiday break ends with one more game on the West coast on Tuesday night against the Anaheim Ducks, albeit with many players out due to COVID protocol on both sides, including both team captains, a budding young star for Anaheim, and the Flyers other top-pairing defenseman.
The Flyers have acquired center Derek Grant from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for AHL forward Kyle Criscuolo and a 2020 fourth-round pick.
In overtime, the newest member to the Flyers leadership group stepped in and did his part. Kevin Hayes scored on a breakaway at 3:53 of overtime to lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Ducks on Sunday night.
The 6-1 defeat to the Sharks was surely a pitiful start to the road trip. The Flyers get right back on the ice on Sunday night to continue the six-game trip by facing the Anaheim Ducks.
Seeing Oskar Lindblom provided a lift for the rest of the Flyers, who “won for Oskar” on Tuesday night against the Ducks.
It was far from a perfect game, but with the help of great goaltending and some timely scoring in the second and third periods, the Flyers were able to snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers have a 10-2-4 record on home ice and three of the next four games will be there, allowing them a chance to put an end to the losing streak and return to the win column. Their first chance is on Tuesday night when they face the Anaheim Ducks.
While showing promise earlier on in the season, David Kase is trying to get back to where he was prior to his upper-body injury that kept him out from Dec. 7 to March 2. If he finds his scoring ability again, the Flyers will have yet another young star in the making.
Another coaching change, a big extension for Auston Matthews and some trades among the Metropolitan Division teams, all this week in Around the NHL.
The Flyers handled the struggling Ducks with four first-period goals and never looked back, picking up their 10th win in the last 12 games to keep the line moving.
Behind four first-period goals, the Flyers extended their points streak to 10 games, picking up a 6-2 win over the Ducks on Saturday afternoon.
The Flyers continue a five-game homestand with a game against the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks have been in complete free-fall mode, with just two wins in their last 20 games.
With the Philadelphia Flyers recent struggles, the team is hoping to start something big after a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks.
Nolan Patrick’s goal with 1:51 remaining in the third period put the Flyers ahead for good in a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
The Flyers begin a four-game road trip against the Anaheim Ducks, who have lost five straight games and are 2-5-1 after starting the season 3-0-1 through four games. Game time is at 10 p.m.
