The Flyers look to beat the Golden Knights for the second time this season during the first matinée game of the season. Things will be more challenging this time however, as Nolan Patrick will not be in the lineup after being diagnosed with an upper-body injury during the last outing versus the Senators.
regulation: It was a tight affair throughout with the Flyers owning a vast majority of the game, but a goal by Cody Eakin with 1:25 sealed their fate.
Takeaways: This was a hard loss but Fleury’s play was solid, stopping three guaranteed goals. The Flyers rhythm was broken thanks to Laughton missing time after being shaken up, then Lindblom left the game after taking a hit from behind into the boards and did not return.
Three stars of the game:
3) Brian Elliott
2) Scott Laughton
1) Marc-Andre Fleury
VGK: Eakin (Carpenter)
