For the Flyers, multiple young players helped snap a six-game losing streak in a 6-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.
Both the Flyers and Canadiens will be without key players in Friday’s Game 6, and it should be an energetic affair that fits the mold of playoff hockey at its finest. Game 6 is set for 7 p.m.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi took a major boarding penalty. Matt Niskanen has been suspended for Game 6 for a cross-check to the head of Brendan Gallagher. Nick Suzuki fueled the fire by patting Carter Hart on the head after a goal. A collision between Sean Couturier and Artturi Lehkonen started an end-of-game scrum. The bad blood in this series went from 0 to 60 in Game 5.
The Flyers were 6-0 in games following a loss in the second half of the regular season. They can add a playoff win to that total with a greasy, bounce-back effort led by their goaltender. Here are 5 takeaways from the Flyers 1-0 win over the Canadiens in Game 3.
A pair of goals in the first period – before the Flyers could even get a shot on goal – and two more in the second paced the Canadiens to a 5-0 rout of the Flyers, evening the series at one.
Perhaps everyone on the outside of the series is making a bigger deal out of the goaltending matchup than the two teams and, individually, the two netminders are. But Carter Hart has come into the playoffs and replicated his performance from the regular season. And then in typical fashion, he has acted like it’s no big deal.
Carter Hart made 27 saves to help the Flyers claim a 2-1 win in Game 1 of their first-round series against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.
Fresh off a 3-1-0 stretch against four of the top six teams in the league, the Flyers face a team outside the playoff picture in the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.
The Flyers look for a fourth straight win to close out the month of November against the Montreal Canadiens, who enter with a six-game losing streak.

When it came down to it, the Flyers ran out of gas. Montreal was the hungrier team early, opened up the lead and let their goaltender do the rest. The regulation loss pushed the Flyers further back in the chase for the playoffs, and likely closed the book on an unlikely comeback.
There would be no magical comeback on this night. The Flyers were never able to solve the Canadiens at even strength and Montreal claimed a 3-1 win over the Flyers on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers face the Montreal Canadiens on home ice to kick off the final 10 games on the schedule, having split the first two meetings of the season in Montreal.
The Flyers 5-1 loss to the Canadiens was flat out embarrassing, against a team they were chasing in the standings no less. The lack of motivation to play, the lack of preparation, was reminiscent of the team that fired its GM in November and its coach in December.
Brendan Gallagher scored a hat trick and the Canadiens rolled to an easy 5-1 win over the Flyers on Thursday night.
