In need of a response, the Flyers delivered a much needed character win. A win that did not come easy after building a three goal lead. But, showed the fight this team continues to establish.

“Our captain tonight and his assistants I thought really took the lead,” head coach Alain Vigneault said. “Nobody was happy about yesterday — this is a proud group, they’re professionals, they’re competitors and we laid it all out tonight.”

Captain Claude Giroux & his new line-mates, Oskar Lindblom & Travis Konecny, were a big part in that lead. Something that will hopefully keep the Flyers rolling.

“It was a must-win,” forward Claude Giroux said. “For us to get this win in regulation, it’s big. With that being said, we have to keep this train going.”

The Flyers responded in their toughest test of the season. Tonight, look to make it two in a row & fourth straight win against the Islanders.

“We found a way to win,” forward Oskar Lindblom said.
