Matt Niskanen scored on a delayed Calgary penalty at 4:58 of the third period to bring the Flyers within one, but Elias Lindholm tallied an empty netter at 19:49 to seal it.
Making his first start of the 2019-20 season, Brian Elliott stopped 35 of 37 shots, while David Rittich flirted with a shut out for two plus periods and finished with 21 saves on 22 shots.
