Obviously the 2021-22 season is one to omit for the Flyers and their lovers. We fired our trainer, had a couple of accidents, traded our captain and as soon as once more overlooked the playoffs. With that being stated it wasn’t all unhealthy, so listed below are the sort 5 video games of remaining season.
#5. March fifth 2022 @Chicago Blackhawks
The Flyers received this recreation 4-3 thank you largely to Cam Atkinson (2G,1A) and Joel Farabee (3A). It used to be a chippy affair with 13 overall minor consequences together with seven roughing minors. Martin Jones used to be simply adequate in internet permitting the 3 objectives, all of which have been scored in the second one length, on 29 photographs. It wasn’t the prettiest recreation however in a tricky season there’s a silver lining in beating some other giant marketplace crew in a nationally televised recreation.
#4. April 24, 2022 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
It’s all the time great to defeat your largest rival it doesn’t matter what level of the season you might be at, or how your seasons going. For 3 hours a packed stadium used to be ready to omit in regards to the struggles of the season and simply revel in a a laugh hockey recreation, that ended with a 4-1 Flyers victory. Philadelphia used to be lead by means of Noah Cates, Keith Yandle, Morgan Frost, and Martin Jones (Yes you learn that listing accurately). Noah Cates registered two objectives and one lend a hand, whilst Frost and Yandle each recording two issues. Martin Jones stood tall in internet preventing 37 of the 38 photographs he confronted.
#3. October 18, 2021 vs. Seattle Kraken
The Flyers made historical past remaining yr as this used to be the primary time those two golf equipment ever performed every different. Throw in the truth that the Flyers outdated bench boss, Dave Hakstol used to be training the Kraken and we beat them 6-1; how may this no longer be a most sensible 5 recreation? This used to be additionally the Flyers first win of the season, and gave the crew 3 out of 4 issues to start out the season, again when lovers had hope. The Flyers had been lead on this one by means of the FAB line as Farabee, Atkinson, and Brassard blended for 6 issues(2g,4a). Justin Braun and Travis Konecny every contributed a purpose and lend a hand within the win. Carter Hart stopped 23 of the 24 photographs he confronted in what used to be a lovely simple time out for him. It used to be additionally a chippy affair with the 2 groups combining for 86 penalty mins.
#2. November 16, 2021 vs. Calgary Flames
The Flyers received this recreation 2-1 in time beyond regulation. Normally you wouldn’t assume a ranking like that may be an exhilarating, most sensible 5 recreation of the season. Sure Carter Hart used to be implausible within the win preventing 33 of the 34 photographs he confronted. However this one had particular which means for one more reason, Jimmy Hayes. Kevin Hayes scored his first purpose of the season, and primary purpose because the passing of his brother, and then he pointed to the sky. It used to be a storybook second for Kevin, the Flyers, and all the NHL, and one that can stick in folks reminiscences for a very long time coming.
#1. March 17, 2022 vs. Nashville Predators
This used to be a lovely evident selection for the most productive recreation of remaining season. Not handiest used to be it a super hockey recreation, nevertheless it used to be Flyers longtime captain Claude Giroux’s a thousandth recreation and in all probability the remaining recreation he’ll ever play for the orange and black. Down 4-3 with much less then 5 mins to play the Flyers stormed again to win 5-4. The vibes round this recreation had been in contrast to any recreation I will bear in mind. It used to be part a birthday party and celebration and part a funeral and a wake, as everybody knew he can be traded quickly after. No topic the way you felt about Giroux’s time as a Flyers, you couldn’t assist however really feel a myriad of feelings on that evening. After all, that’s one the explanations that all of us watch and love sports activities is to really feel the ones feelings, and there used to be not more emotional recreation remaining season than this one.
So that wraps up our most sensible 5 video games of the 2021-22 season. Obviously hopes don’t seem to be very prime going into this season, and for just right reason why. However, the Flyers will nonetheless play 82 NHL video games this yr and there are sure to be a couple of just right moments from the season.
