San Jose finished things off on an empty-net goal with 3:54 minutes left. • Tortorella was clearly trying to make a point by not playing Hayes and Konecny during the final stanza. They've been two of the Flyers' best players. Hayes came in with eight points through five games, while Konecny had four goals. Sitting them is not solely about those two players. It's very much about making an example of your best players. That could be Tortorella's motive, that if somebody doesn't play the right way, they can sit. Even the go-to guys who have played well.
The Swedish winger became beloved in the city amid his courageous battle with cancer. Lindblom had his life and career rocked in December 2019, when he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that occurs in bones or in the soft tissue around the bones. He missed the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season as he fought for his life. After completing his radiation treatments in July 2020, he remarkably returned to the Flyers' lineup for two games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs that September. Lindblom, a 2014 fifth-round draft pick who developed into an impactful player, had the final year of his three-year contract bought out by the Flyers in July. He played five years in Philadelphia.
not that I was thinking we need another one, but to get that third one was a little bit of burst [the Flyers'] bubble, " Cooper said. Tampa Bay outshot Philadelphia 17-2 in the second, including one segment when the Lightning maintained possession for nearly four straight minutes early in the period.

"We weren't playing good enough, " Konecny said. "I was on [the ice] for both goals. " • The Flyers nearly had a 1-0 lead in the second period with a Joel Farabee goal. However, Sharks head coach David Quinn challenged the goal, claiming the Flyers were offside. The play was in fact offside, resulting in Farabee's goal being taken away.
Tortorella's club seemed to lose some momentum and a struggling San Jose team found life. Over two minutes later, the Sharks grabbed the 1-0 advantage with a goal from Erik Karlsson. Then, with 1:31 left in the middle frame, Steven Lorentz redirected a shot past Felix Sandstrom to extend San Jose's lead to 2-0. The Flyers had just two power play opportunities, one of them in the third period, but couldn't capitalize.
Stamkos gets 1, 000th point, Lightning defeat FlyersPHILADELPHIA -- Steven Stamkos got his 1, 000th NHL point for the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 4-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday. Stamkos reached the milestone at 7:55 of the second period with an assist on the second of Nicholas Paul's two goals. He rimmed the puck behind the Flyers net to Ian Cole, whose centering pass from the left corner went off Paul in the crease and past Carter Hart. "Just amazing to share it with these guys, " Stamkos said. "It's an individual statistic, but there's so many people that have helped me get here, from the players I played with in the past. Obviously, [Martin St. Louis] and [Vincent Lecavalier] and there's so many guys that I started with and you just reminisce, like Teddy Purcell, Ryan Malone, Mike Smith, the list goes on. And then you've got [Nikita Kucherov] and [Victor Hedman] and [Brayden Point] and all these amazing players that I played with.
"Andrei Vasilevskiy made 21 saves and had an assist, Cole had a goal and an assist, and Corey Perry had two assists for Tampa Bay (14-8-1). Travis Konecny scored, and Hart made 23 saves for Philadelphia (8-11-5), which ended a 10-game slide (0-7-3) with a 3-1 win against the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

He also extended his point streak to nine games (six goals, nine assists). "I got the puck low in the corner, 'Killer' made a good play, " Stamkos said. "I took a peek over my shoulder, I saw Cole coming down the backside and for a second I was just going to throw it back post, but then I didn't want to get yelled at in the meeting for turning the puck over. So, I thought I'd make the safe play behind the net, and obviously he made a great play out to Paul in front.
Carter Hart made 31 saves Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee, leading the Flyers to a 3-1 win. "I'm not going to look by the good week they had prior to tonight's game, " Tortorella said, acknowledging his team's positive road trip. "We won't see them tomorrow (off day), we'll get a couple of good days of practice and get back at it again. " Sharks netminder James Reimer turned away 30 Flyers shots for the shutout. • Oskar Lindblom, an adored and admired player in Philadelphia, returned to the Wells Fargo Center for the first time as a visitor.
Obviously, the guys I'm playing with now, [Alex Killorn], Paul. Everyone just has a hand, coaching staff. "It just brings back so many amazing memories, like your parents getting you involved in the game, all that kind stuff, just kind of flashes back. It's one of those things that I don't think hits you till a little later. But just to share that with the guys on the ice, that's something you never dream of as a kid. So, for it to become a reality is pretty awesome. "Video: TBL@PHI: Stamkos collects his 1, 000th career pointStamkos, the Lightning captain, is the 95th player in NHL history to reach 1, 000 points (494 goals, 506 assists), and the ninth active.

Tortorella makes a point as Flyers come back to earth with loss to SharksFlyers Flyers Before Sunday night's game, Tony DeAngelo talked about not getting too high on a 4-1-0 start to the season. "It's only five games in, so it really doesn't mean anything, " the Flyers' defenseman said. "A lot of people go by five-game stretches; I'm not one of those people. It's a good start. A ton of room for improvement, which is a good thing. So you're sitting at 4-1, but knowingly, lots of room for improvement. " In other words, it's a long season and things can change quickly in this game.
"The big thing for me is we're winning face-offs, " Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "When you win face-offs and you start with possession, the mojo starts kicking in. "Video: TBL@PHI: Paul finishes Perry's feed for a PPG in 1stAfter Paul scored his second goal, Ross Colton made it 3-0 with four seconds remaining in the second. Flyers defenseman Egor Zamula's pass in the neutral zone went off Colton to Perry, who skated in on Hart. Perry was tripped while trying to get a shot off, but Colton scored on the rebound. "I'm glad we scored that third one late because it would have been...
There was no immediate word on his status. Tortorella didn't have an update postgame. Losing van Riemsdyk for any period of time would be costly for the Flyers. They're already without Cam Atkinson (upper body) and Owen Tippett (upper body) on the wing. Atkinson has yet to make his season debut and Tippett was injured in the first period of the season. Van Riemsdyk entered Sunday with five points (two goals, three assists) and a plus-5 rating through five games. Along with Atkinson and Tippett, defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen (lower body) remained out. • In his second start of the season, Sandstrom made 22 saves on 24 shots.
"Our record's still pretty good, " Konecny said. "We've been working hard. Obviously we don't want to lose like that. I don't think it changes everything, we're still a good hockey team, we're still going to bounce back, we're going to play hard every night. "That was definitely not a reflection of how we play our game. I think in the third period, that was more of our style, we were coming at them, we were getting pucks in and working hard. So if there's one thing you can take from it, it's the third. " • The club lost James van Riemsdyk with under seven minutes left in the first period. The big winger blocked a shot and was unable to return to the game.
During a first-period stoppage, the Flyers played a video tribute for Lindblom on the Jumbotron.
