Flyers get going early in early day game, beat Jets 2-1

PHILADELPHIA - Scott Hartnell and Sean Couturier provided the offence while Steve Mason stopped all but one shot as the Philadelphia Flyers skated to a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday afternoon.

The Flyers (11-12-2) won their fifth straight game at home after dropping their previous two on the road at Florida and Tampa Bay.

Mason turned away 25 shots in the early matinee, including an impressive pad save on Matt Halischuk on a 2-on-1 Jets chance in the second. He improved to 3-0-1 in his career against the Jets (12-12-4).

Both Flyers goals came off Winnipeg turnovers.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
