The Philadelphia Flyers survived a third period onslaught from the Washington Capitals for a 6-4 win Thursday night.

The win was their seventh in their last eight. While the game may have been great for ratings and for third-party excitement, the Flyers suffered from sloppy and undisciplined defensive play during the third period.  They allowed third goals in the last 20 minutes, but were able to score a couple of their own to seal the victory.

I want to revisit two of the goals from last night and break them down into small details. The first goal I will breakdown is Troy Brouwer’s from the third period.
