After enduring the trade deadline, the departure of Glencross, and the news that their leader, captain, and best player was done for the season, the question coming into the game was: how would they react? It didn’t take long to find out as they came out flying and were pretty dominant through much of the first period.
The Flyers have been playing well of late as well and they weren’t going to roll over without a fight. In fact they did something few teams have done this year – outscore the Flames in the 3rd period. However, the Flames weren’t going to be denied. They weathered the Flyers’ push backs and they did what they do – they took over the OT and got themselves a well deserved two points to even their record on this grueling road trip to 2 wins and 2 losses.
