The Edmonton Oilers were held to just three goals, with Leon Draisaitl factoring into each. That was enough to beat the Flyers, who couldn’t manage a goal in yet another defeat, falling to the Oilers, 3-0, on Tuesday night.
Now that the Flyers have a win under their belts, they look to continue that against another high-powered offense, facing the Edmonton Oilers.
For the third straight game, the Flyers faced the “win a period, win a game” scenario, once again going up against some stiff competition to start the season. After falling short last Saturday against the still-undefeated Florida Panthers, the Flyers passed the test this time.
Cam Atkinson capped off his second two-goal game of the season with the eventual game-winning goal at 4:18 of the third period in the Flyers 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
The Flyers open a three-game Western Canada road trip against the Edmonton Oilers, another team undefeated with a 5-0-0 record. Wednesday’s game will mark a second straight without Ryan Ellis in the lineup, making the challenge that much tougher.
Perhaps the biggest moment though was the return to the lineup of a player the Flyers had desperately needed to get back, and while his presence didn’t solve all of their problems, it did help them get back in the win column. Here are five takeaways from Sunday’s 7-4 win over the Capitals.
Travis Konecny had three assists in the Metropolitan Division’s 9-5 loss to the Atlantic Division. The Pacific Division claimed victory in the 3-on-3 tournament with a 5-4 win over the Atlantic in the final at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis.
In two straight games, the Flyers have not been close to competitive and played atrocious defense, certainly alarming signs with more divisional games still to come.
On this week’s episode of YWT: A Philadelphia Flyers Podcast, host Kyle Collington and guest Kevin Durso discuss the Flyers stuggles, Travis Konecny’s hot start, Joel Farabee’s call-up and more.
Three quick goals in the second period put the game away as the Oilers rolled to a win over the Flyers behind Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

Saturday’s game was certainly not be design, but the Flyers stayed with the game and found a way to rally back and win in overtime, defeating the Oilers, 5-4, in overtime. It has them up to seven straight wins and surging.
In overtime, Nolan Patrick was the hero, scoring the game-winning goal to give the Flyers their seventh straight win, 5-4, over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon.
The Flyers come home for the next five games, starting with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon, where they welcome Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and former head coach Ken Hitchcock.
Recent news from around the NHL include a shakeup in Edmonton, the All-Star spectacle in San Jose last weekend, and a big technology announcement that could change the NHL forever.
In a trying year for the franchise where production seems to be down across the board, Claude Giroux still has the numbers and is still playing at a level that puts him among the NHL’s best and is adding to a resume that ranks him among Flyers legends.
The Flyers did nothing to turn the tide in Edmonton, looking rather lifeless in a 4-1 defeat to the Oilers.
This is a game of two teams going in opposite directions. The Edmonton Oilers have surged back into a playoff spot with an 8-2-2 record under new coach Ken Hitchcock. The Flyers, meanwhile, are 1-1-1 on a five-game road trip with very little, if any, progress made since the firing of GM Ron Hextall.
