1ST – Michael Del Zotto: Jumped into the play to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead on a 2-on-1 rush with Brayden Schenn, and then provided the overtime game-winner. It was just the second multi-goal game of Del Zotto’s career. He played 27:02, which ranks as the 11th-busiest game of his career.
2ND – Brayden Schenn: Posted two primary assists, setting up Couturier’s goal in the first period with a pass from behind the net before making an outstanding move in the second period to find Del Zotto for the 2-1 go-ahead goal. Schenn has two goals and four assists for six points in his last two games and has posted consecutive multiple-point games for the first time since November of 2013.
3RD – Marco Scandella: Scored a first-period goal that temporarily stemmed the Flyers’ momentum. He had six shot attempts, two on goal and four that were blocked.
Schenn is on a three-game scoring streak, with three goals and four assists in the span… Matt Read tied a career high with six shots on goals, done four times before and once previously this season (12/1/15 at OTT)… Radko Gudas led the Flyers with 12 shot attempts – five on goal and six that missed, plus one that was blocked. The Flyers missed the net 22 times in the game, which is their second-highest total this season (24 at CAR, 11/14/15)… Evgeny Medvedev was a season-best plus-3.
“I thought in the overtime our best player was our goaltender. We didn’t have the puck very much in the first three minutes of that OT, but that’s a little bit the nature of the 3- on 3, you’re going to need a save or two. We got two or three good saves and then went down to the other end and made a play. That’s the excitement of the three on three, both good and bad.”
“It’s a little bit different [to play with five defensemen]. You get into a rotation where you’re playing with two guys. It’s nice to get a little extra ice time. You feel more into the game. No one’s ever complaining about that. It’s unfortunate Ghost went down there. Hopefully he’s back for the next game.”
