The Flyers got multi-point production all around, as they defeated the Panthers, 6-3, at Wells Fargo Center.
A game-tying goal by Martin Necas with 0.2 seconds remaining in regulation set up overtime, where Sebastian Aho completed a hat trick just 28 seconds in to hand the Flyers a 5-4 defeat on Saturday evening at Wells Fargo Center.
The Tampa Bay Lightning scored three power-play goals in the game, pacing the way to a 5-2 loss for the Flyers on Tuesday night.
Chuck Fletcher’s already underwhelming trade deadline week turned into a disastrous deadline day. The Flyers traded Zack MacEwen and Patrick Brown, but had a deal with James van Riemsdyk fall through while acquiring Brendan Lemieux and two late-round draft picks.
The Kings turned in a dominant performance on Saturday night with a 6-3 victory to snap the Flyers seven-game points streak.
After allowing the first two goals of the game to put themselves in another hole, the Flyers gave up another goal in the first two minutes of the second period. The game was essentially over right then and there, because the 18 minutes that followed were not just the worst the Flyers have played this season, they were historically bad.
Wednesday’s game was rock bottom, one of the most embarrassing efforts in Flyers history. After falling behind 2-0 in the first, the Flyers allowed seven goals to the Rangers in the second. You read that right: seven. A touchdown. That’s how things got to the final score in a 9-0 shellacking.
