The Flyers are once again taking on former captain Claude Giroux and the Ottawa Senators, only this marks Giroux’s first game in Philadelphia in another uniform.
A three-game road trip comes to an end on Saturday night as the Flyers face the Ottawa Senators and a familiar face on the opposition. It will be Claude Giroux’s first game against his long-time former team.
The Flyers tried to move cap space, but couldn’t clear enough for Johnny Gaudreau to sign with his hometown team. The Flyers instead added forward Nicolas Deslauriers and brought back defenseman Justin Braun.
A power-play goal and empty-netter proved to be the difference in the Flyers 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.
The Flyers, without Claude Giroux in anticipation of a trade, will take on the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.
It wasn’t pretty, and against another of the NHL’s bottom-feeder teams, the mistakes being made and the habits continuing to take center-stage are still troubling. But the Flyers also have strung together wins and points, and that’s what was needed against these teams. Now they need to continue to form better habits and apply it, perhaps as soon as next week against some tough Metro Division competition, if the schedule allows.
Travis Sanheim scored the game-winning goal at 1:35 of OT, giving the Flyers a 4-3 win over the Senators on Saturday night at Wells Fargo Center.
