Islanders – Flyers Game 2
Islanders lead 1-0
The Flyers, seemingly eager to prove that game 1 was a fluke, opened the scoring less than two minutes in to the game with Kevin Hayes notching his second of the playoffs.
Hayes extended the lead with another goal a few minutes later
The fun wasn’t over then. Sean Couturier made it 3-0 late in the first with a great move.
That was the end for Varlamov, as Greiss replaced him.
The Islanders did not give up though, with the only scoring of the second period being a goal by Anders Lee to cut the lead to 3-1.
The third period was all Islanders as Anthony Beauvillier scored his seventh of the playoffs.
Pageau evened the score to send the game in to overtime.
The Flyers showed great resilience in not folding after giving up a three goal lead as Myers ended the game.
Next game is Thursday 8/27 at 730.
