Flyers upset 'hockey gods,' get tough bounces in loss to Canucks

Canucks dominate slumping Flyers in 5-1 win

Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers - 12/16/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Oilers are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 in their last 7 Sunday games and 3-8 in their last 11 road games. "And they did tonight", Green said.

Scott Laughton scored for the Flyers. Jacob Markstrom has given up 73 goals on 736 shots faced and Anders Nilsson has allowed 29 goals on 294 shots. The Canucks have been too shaky to make a habit out of backing them at the moment, even though we cashed on them last night against the Flyers.

"We've been doing a good job, but we can't sit back and relax and be happy about that", the goalie said. Anthony Stolarz stopped two-of-four shots before he left midway through the first period with a lower-body injury. "I know it sounds old and cliche but really there is nothing else to do".

Horvat said the squad is showing their resilience after a slump that saw them take just four points from 13 games.

"I don't know what hockey gods we (angered) but we're getting some tough bounces and some very untimely situations and it's tough sledding right now", Flyers center Jordan Weal said.

Rumors have swirled that head coach Dave Hakstol could be next.

Pettersson has been the NHL's top rookie this season, topping all first-year players with 16 goals, 17 assists and 33 points.

Eriksson followed up less than four minutes later, collecting the puck in the slot and hammering it in past the Flyers netminder. Stolarz was also on duty in Edmonton on Friday night when his team lost 4-1 to the Oilers.

Philadelphia swapped Stolarz for Lyon after Eriksson's goal, just over eight minutes into the first period. The puck slammed into the glass behind the net and came back over the goal. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 19 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 26 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 98 shots on goal. Laughton handled a bouncing puck and weaved through the Vancouver defense before lifting a shot over Jakob Markstrom to get the Flyers on the board.

At 12:07, a turnaround shot by Brock Boeser from a distance beat Lyon, making it 4-1. High in Philly's end, Boeser took a rocket of a wrist shot and somehow found a hole between Lyon's legs.

He carried the offense, while Draymond Green - as usual - cranked up the defense. "We can't have lulls like that", Durant said. The Kings impolitely informed the reigning National Basketball Association champions of that Friday night at Golden 1 Center.


Vancouver's Tyler Motte came close to adding one more goal late in the third period when he and Stecher took off on a Flyers power play, but Lyon scooped up the backhanded shot. The Flyers have run through five goaltenders this season, with starter Brian Elliott week-to-week after suffering a lower-body injury during a game against the New Jersey Devils last month.

Boeser has seven goals and two assists in his last eight games. Bo Horvat put in his 14th goal of the season in the second frame before Pettersson picked up another assist on a Nikolay Goldobin score.

He was pulled seconds later, with more than five minutes still remaining in the game.

Granlund scored on the empty net.
