GAME 82 FLYERS FALL IN SHOOTOUT TO CANES

The game didn’t matter…. But it sure was fun.

With a handful of regulars scratched in the final game of the season to help them heal up for the playoffs, the Flyers could have just mailed it in and got ready for the playoffs.

But they did no such thing, showing the same resolve they’ve shown all season when they get down in a game.

And although they ultimately didn’t win the final game of the season, losing 6-5 to the Carolina Hurricanes in a shootout, they did fight back from a three-goal deficit to tie the game in the final seconds and earn a point on the last day of the season.

The Flyers finish 42-30-10 with 94 points and will start the playoffs against the New York Rangers, presumably Thursday (the schedule will be out later today) at Madison Square Garden.

Wayne Simmonds had a great game for the Flyers with a pair of goals, including the tying goal with less than 10 seconds remaining. That was his 29th goal of the season, which set a career high. He also finished the season with a career-best 60 points.

Matt Read scored the first goal of the game on a pass from call-up Jason Akeson. It was Read’s 22nd goal of the season and it allowed him to reach the 40-point plateau for the second time in his career.

Kimmo Timonen and Simmonds scored 10 seconds apart in the second period and Sean Couturier added his 13th goal of the season to erase a 4-1 deficit in the middle frame.

Couturier finished the season with 39 points, which is the best of his three-year NHL career.

Claude Giroux assisted on Timonen’s goal. He finished the season with 86 points, third in the NHL in scoring.

Mark Streit also had a pair of assists, finishing the season with 44 points, the top defensive scorer on the Flyers and tied for 14th in the NHL among defensemen.

Cal Heeter played in his first NHL game in goal and despite struggling early in the game, giving up three first period goals, he rebounded nicely and finished the game with 38 saves.
