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.
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.
