Oskar Lindblom drops the gloves for first career fight after Flyers go down 4-0
The Philadelphia Flyers had another bad period on Saturday night. It wasn’t quite as bad as their 7-0 second period against the Rangers, but it certainly wasn’t good. After falling behind 4-0, Oskar Lindblom showed some fight on the ensuing faceoff.
Oskar Lindblom went after Oliver Wahlstrom and dropped the gloves for his first career fight.
Lindblom had a great game on Thursday night with two goals and wanted to use that as a building block. If the Flyers can’t get going offensively, maybe a fight will help.
Oskar Lindblom’s hard work pays off, two-goal game could be building block for Flyers
Joel Farabee got the Flyers on the board before the end of the first period. Scott Laughton tied up his man and Farabee sniped a goal on a two-on-one rush.
Laughton is playing on the first line in place of Sean Couturier, who was a late scratch due to a lower-body injury.
The Flyers aren’t starting off the second half of the season the right way, but at least Oskar Lindblom showed some fight.
