We have a winner! Barely…
The Flyers tied a franchise record for most shots in a road game, 55, but needed a last-minute goal and overtime to beat the Winnipeg Jets, 5-4.
All was normal until the 4:57 mark of the third period, when Evander Kane gave the Jets the lead on what could best be described as someone performing a knucklepuck with a feather. Bryz missed.
No, me neither.
Anyway, the Flyers found more jam. Simmonds and his Shredder mask scored. Classy Jets fans gave him the finger….
After the game, our $51 million goaltender, who was mockingly serenaded by the awkward Canadian crowd (playing patty cake here— much thanks to those who sent video), joked about the reception compared to Philly: [audio here]
"You know, I like it. It’s great atmosphere. I wish every building was going to be supportive like that, going to support me like here. It was nice to hear cheering: Ilya, Ilya, Ilya. I never heard it before, anywhere. When 15,000 people support you, it’s very impressive.
Here’s a cheering. In Philly they boo me."
Again, he was joking.
Claude Giroux broke a TSN reporter's watch during the game.
ESPN continued their love of hockey. They thought the Flyes beat the Canucks.
