Philadelphia Flyers (28-23-6) 5 – 2 San Jose Sharks (35-16-6)
Yesterday, 10:30 PM at SAP Center, San Jose, California
The Philadelphia Flyers trailed 2-1 after the second period Monday, and history told us they were in hitch over the San Jose Sharks. The Flyers hadn’t crushed the Sharks since Dec. 12, 2000, a 13-game winless skid, nor had they won in San Jose since Nov. 5, 1999. Then the third period began at SAP Center.
According to the sources – Flyers goaltender Steve Mason told -“This is the type of game for myself, going into the second period when it’s 2-1, it was one of those games where I was just telling myself to keep it at two goals because of the way the guys were playing you knew it was only a matter of time before they found the back of the net, who made 20 saves to earn his 22nd victory of the season. “I didn’t expect it to turn out the way it did in the third with the quick goals going in like that, but we’ll take it. The guys deserved what they got.”
Read, Raffl and Giroux scored their goals in a span of 2:45 to build a 4-2 lead with 16:04 left. Mark Streit also scored for the Flyers, who completed their California road trip with a 2-1 record after wins over the Los Angeles Kings and Sharks following a loss to the Anaheim Ducks.
