The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 in this Black Friday game that began at 11:30 in the morning.

For this game, Ondrej Pavelec started in net for the Jets and Steve Mason for the Flyers.

Flyers forward combinations:

Giroux-Voracek-Hartnell

Lecavalier-Simmonds-B.Schenn

Couturier-Read-Downie

Hall-Rinaldo-Raffl

Flyers defensemen pairings:

Grossmann-Streit

Timonen-Coburn

L.Schenn-Meszaros

The Flyers wasted no time in getting on the board as forward Scott Hartnell blasted a loose puck in just 48 seconds into the game.  They dominated the period but could not get another puck past Pavelec.  They outshot the Jets 13-2 in the 1st period.

Flyers had an early 5-on-3 in the 2nd period but did not really come close to converting.  Their power-play still needs a lot of work.  Then on a Jets power-play, Sean Couturier deftly stole the puck and scored on a short-handed breakaway to make it 2-0 Flyers at 5:36.  Coots had a strong game with a goal and 6 shots.

In the 3rd period, the Flyers played mostly on their heels to hold on for the win.  They paid for it at 12:53 when Michael Frolik of the Jets broke up the shutout and pull the Jets to within 2-1.   They would get no closer though as the Flyers were able to hold on for the 2-1 win ending their 2-game losing streak.

Hartnell on the win said, “It’s a big win for us. We had two bad games for us there on the road. I thought we played the right way tonight. We’re getting pucks deep; guys are blocking the shots, paying the price. Obviously [Steve] Mason was our best player again tonight, and we got a big win.”

On his goal, he said, “I just shot it as hard as I could, and the goalie stood out of the net. I’ll take it. It’s nice, your first shift just going right in the slot and there’s a nice little present waiting for you there. I’ll take it. It was a big start for us; we needed to have a big start. We got the crowd into it which is awesome. “

The Flyers’ next game is tomorrow in Nashville against the Predators.

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your articlee seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Thanks
