Tony DeAngelo picked up the game-winning goal off the rush to give the Flyers a 4-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.
The Boston Bruins have vaulted to a 2-0 series lead with a pair of wins at home on the wildcard Carolina Hurricanes. The San Jose Sharks took the first game of the Western Conference Final, but the St. Louis Blues bounced back in Game 2 to even the series.
Last week, it was already known that the President’s Trophy winners, the Tampa Bay Lightning, were eliminated, as were the Pittsburgh Penguins. Six other teams have joined, and many of them were near the top of the regular-season standings.
Joe Thornton scored to tie the game with 4:57 left in regulation and Timo Meier scored his second goal of the game just 13 seconds into overtime in a 4-3 Flyers loss to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
The Sharks scored at 3:17 of the first period, then scored again 11 seconds later. By the end of the first period, the rout was on as San Jose struck four times in the opening 20 minutes in a 8-2 laugher over the Flyers on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers play host to the San Jose Sharks for their home opener on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
