OTF: Patrick returns to lineup tonight vs. Jets

Rookie forward makes his return after missing nine games

by @NHLFlyers /

Following the team's morning skate in Winnipeg, Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol announced that rookie forward Nolan Patrick is ready to go and will return to the lineup tonight at Winnipeg.

"He's handled things very well. He's got very good poise in all different situations and obviously being challenged with an injure early on isn't ideal, but again, it's another learning experience that a player has to handle and handle well."

This will be his first game action since leaving the Flyers-Ducks game on Oct. 24 with an upper-body injury that has caused him to miss nine games.

As for returning from injury, Patrick also noted that he's ready to go and won't have any hesitation to play his game.

POSTGAME 5: Snowed In

Flyers fight back to get a point, but Avalanche take 5-4 shootout win over Flyers

by @NHLFlyers /

The Flyers and Avs exchanged leads in a see-saw battle that went past regulation, but it was Mikko Rantanen's goal in the third attempt of a shootout that gave the Avalanche an extra point and a 5-4 win over the Flyers on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Avs got out to a 1-0 lead by scoring with just 1.2 seconds left in the first period on a face-off while on the power play, but the Flyers countered with two straight goals six minutes into the second for a 2-1 lead.

Colorado answered with two consecutive goals of their own to grab the lead back, including a shorthanded tally to tie it at 2-2, but Jakub Voracek batted in a puck at a sharp angle just inside the post to tie it at 3-3. The teams traded goals yet again with Nail Yakupov regaining the lead for Colorado and Dale Weise scoring his second of the year to tie it up for a fourth and final time in this one.

The two teams combined for 11 shots in the five minute, 3-on-3 overtime with both goaltenders up to the challenge. Michal Neuvirth finished the game with 23 total saves, while Semyon Varlamov stopped 33 shots, including 2 of 3 skaters in the shootout to preserve the win.

All told, Neuvirth stopped 33 shots, while Jake Allen yielded just one goal on 22 shots but it was enough to take the loss.

The Flyers salvaged a point in the standings with an impressive third period comeback, but the Coyotes ended the game with 14 seconds remaining in overtime for their first win of the season, 4-3 at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers fell behind by two goals in the first period, and after a scoreless second period, the Coyotes capitalized on an early power-play in the third to make it an 0-3 deficit. Sean Couturier scored on the power-play a minute later and the Flyers pressed hard in the final minute of play, receiving goals from Jordan Weal and another from Couturier with 16 seconds left in the third to force overtime.

After killing off a penalty in the extra session, the Flyers gave up a 3-on-2 with their leading scorer, rookie Clayton Keller, holding onto the puck and feeding Alex Goligoski, who one-timed it past Brian Elliott.

Elliott stopped 30 of 34 shots, while Coyotes netminder Scott Wedgewood made 28 saves for the win.
