by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @NHLFlyers / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED

The Flyers scored first but Vancouver tallied the next four in an eventual 5-2 decision as the Flyers completed a quick two-game homestand on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Ivan Provorov scored for the second consecutive game, putting the Flyers up 1-0 eight minutes in, but Daniel Sedin answered 1:42 later and Brock Boeser scored his first of two 19 seconds after that to give Vancouver a 2-1 lead at the first intermission. Boeser struck again 1:56 into the second on the power play, and Sven Baertschi made it 4-1 with 5:20 left in the frame. 

Jake Voracek tried to stoke the fire with a goal halfway through the third, but the Flyers couldn't get anything else past Jacob Markstrom; Loui Eriksson finished things off with an empty-netter. Markstrom stopped 36 of 38 shots in the win. Michal Neuvirth started for the Flyers and turned away 18 of 22 in 34:26 of play before yielding to Brian Elliott, who turned away all 13 shots he faced.

Practice Update: Gudas reacts, rare practice & stadium series

News, Notes and Storylines to come out of Flyers practice on Monday

by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @nhlflyers / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

After a day off from skating, but still taking part in the annual Flyers Wives Carnival on Sunday, the Flyers got back on the ice for a day of practice, which is rare considering the schedule will see them play three games in less than a four-day span.

"It's good to work on a couple things before we get going here," said captain Claude Giroux. "[There's] a lot of games in a lot of nights. We know that, but we kind of enjoy that. After these three games we're going to look back and we're going to be in a better position in the standings."

What's first on everyone's priority list is to snap the current skid the team is on, having dropped four straight. One small positive to take away is that they have earned at least a point in the standings in five of their last seven games.

POSTGAME 5: Burned out

Flames nab extra point with 5-4 overtime win over Flyers

by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @NHLFlyers / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED
In a see-saw battle against Calgary at the Wells Fargo Center, a total of nine goals were scored, but it was Michael Frolik's tally in overtime that was the difference as the Flames took a 5-4 victory over the Flyers.

The Flyers charged out to an early lead off a goal from Brandon Manning that took a fortunate bounce off the post, then Mike Smith's back. Johnny Gaudreau tied it up on a breakaway and the Flyers took a 3-1 lead with goals from Couturier and Provorov, but Calgary responded with a pair of goals from Sean Monahan to draw even and 3-3.

Nolan Patrick gave the Flyers the lead after finding a rebound and roofing it backhand over Smith, but the Flames came right back as Monahan scored again to complete a hat trick.

In the overtime session, Mikael Backlund entered the Flyers zone on a 2 on 1 and found Frolik, who capitalized on a one-timer for the victory. Mike Smith stopped 35 of 39 shots, while Brian Elliott made 26 saves in the loss.
