POSTGAME 5: Vexed by Vancouver

Canucks tally four straight on Flyers to take 5-2 win

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.
