Is there anything better in hockey than when Giroux buries a one-timer from the top of the circle and then turns to the crowd to pump them up? OK, maybe watching yet another superstar turn into a crybaby after playing the Flyers. But Giroux is a close second.

Some notes from the Flyers city-leading PR department, even if they now hate us:

Michael Raffl scored with 1:29 remaining to give the Flyers a win unlike any other in their history, as they came from two goals down twice to defeat the Oilers – the first time they’ve won a game under those circumstances. Edmonton took a two-goal lead on goals by Leon Draisaitl 4:39 into the game and Connor McDavid 4:35 into the second period (PP). The Flyers flipped the score by tallying three times in 72 seconds – Mark Streit started the remarkable run with 7:29 left in the second, followed by Pierre-Edouard Bellemare 53 seconds later and Claude Giroux 19 seconds after that. The Oilers tied it back up on a shorthanded goal by Andrej Sekera with 3:45 left in the second, and restored the two-goal advantage with goals from Benoit Pouliot 3:07 into the third period and Oscar Klefbom on a power play 5:12 into the final frame. Jake Voracek started the second comeback 1:19 later with a power play tally, and Giroux tied the contest with his second of the night with 7:49 remaining. That set the stage for Raffl’s effort just inside the final 90 seconds. Steve Mason made 28 saves in the win, while Jonas Gustavsson absorbed the loss with 25 stops. Stars of the Game: 1 – Claude Giroux; 2 – Jake Voracek; 3 – Jesse Puljujarvi.

“Yeah, the guys kept battling hard,” said Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol. “They went out and played the next shift. Obviously you never want to be in the situation where you have to battle back a couple of times, but that was the case tonight. It was a really good team effort all the way through.”

Per the Elias Sports Bureau, tonight was the first occasion in franchise history that the Flyers have won a game in which they erased two separate two-goal deficits.

“It’s a mix of emotions,” Raffl said. “You get down two goals and you try to look for ways to hold back but our chances have been very good. It has gotten us goals in the right moment. We never give up and stick with it like I said. We are a confident group right now and good things will happen.”

The Flyers scored their three second-period goals in 72 seconds. Also per Elias, the last time the Flyers scored three goals that quickly was on Feb. 14, 2009 when they scored three goals in 67 seconds in a 5-1 home win over the New York Islanders.

I basically just did the job of a Flyers beat writer by copying and pasting the Flyers press notes.
