Hurricanes 3, Flyers 2
The Carolina Hurricanes come away with the 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers after weather delays.

PHILADELPHIA – One would think that with an extra day off thanks to the snowstorm that crippled the area, the Flyers would have had a bit more jump in their skates playing Wednesday instead.

Yet, despite a goal and an assists from Claude Giroux, a power play marker from Scott Hartnell and some decent goaltending from Steve Mason, the Flyers seemed to be playing in slow motion and dropped a 3-2 game to the Carolina Hurricanes, their third loss of the season against the Canes in as many games.

The Flyers start was lackluster. They had just nine shots on goal at the halfway point of the game. Meanwhile, Carolina played a smothering brand of hockey that frustrated the Flyers.

"We were just playing flat,” said Giroux who tried to get the Flyers back in the game by scoring on a tough angle-backhander and assisting on the tying goal by Hartnell. “ We weren't playing the way we should have been playing.  It's kind of embarrassing to be playing like this at home…

“Anytime you play a team in your division you want to make sure you play your best hockey and that didn’t happen.  They outplayed us.  [Mason] had to make some tough saves for us."

The loss was their third in the last four at home – and was another game where they trailed heading into the third period, something that has been chronic for the team but has been muted by nine come-from-behind wins. However, the Flyers can’t rely on the ability to do that this often.

The good news for the Flyers is they don’t have much time to sit around and dwell on it, as they are headed to Carolina for a matchup with the red hot Columbus Blue Jackets, who have won seven straight and are now just two points behind the Flyers for third place in the Metropolitan Division.

There is much more on this game to come following post game locker room interviews.
