We’re going streaking?
If you consider winning two games a streak then yeah this team is going streaking. For the second straight game, the Flyers came back from a 2-0 deficit to win, pushed by a hat-trick in that effort.
Oskar Lindblom and Sean Couturier’s three goals helped propel the Flyers to a 4-3 win at home over the Boston Bruins. Claude Giroux got his 500th career assist while Carter Hart stopped 39 of 42 shots.
Is this a turning point? Who knows, but I’d say right now no, although beating Minnesota and Boston are good wins for a team like the Flyers.
There are still many questions surrounding this team, including what’s gonna happen with Dale Weise after he cleared waivers.
Up next for the team is a Saturday night matchup in Montreal against the Canadiens. While you wait, go ahead and listen to the latest episode of Snow the Goalie with special guest Mike McKenna.

There’s not a ton of Eagles stuff now that the season is over, but Brett Favre thinks Doug Pederson should keep Nick Foles over Carson Wentz.
“No disrespect at all to Carson Wentz. I think he’s already proven that he’s a great quarterback. Totally different than Nick Foles. Nick Foles, to me, is more of a (Tom) Brady-esque type quarterback. Very limited in what he can do but very, very good in what he does. He’s a pure pocket passer and he’s great at dishing it out and he’s proven that he’s clutch. He did it this past week, he did it last year, he’s done it time and time again, and he’s proven that he can win the big games. That, I think, is what we have to look at, or the Eagles, or anyone in a similar situation — it’s about winning, it’s about being clutch, doing really what you expect your players to do. And he does it as well as anyone.”
