So not only do the Philadelphia Flyers pick up a big win against one of the league’s premier teams last night in the Chicago Blackhawks, we were treated to an incredible hockey game full of shots, hits, and even overtime!
Claude Giroux sniped a puck past Chicago’s Antti Raanta with 4.2 seconds remaining in overtime to pick up an exhilarating win in front of 19,932 fans at the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday night.
But perhaps the best part, aside from the game winning goal from Oh Captain My Captain, was after a Ray Emery save late in the third period. Sean Couturier gets a little bit nasty and shoves down Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews. Toews has this look of disbelief that someone could possibly push him down.
That, or he thought about fighting whoever did it turned around, saw Couturier and his beard and realized that Coots is a scary dude and better stay away.
Here’s a GIF of that. Enjoy Flyers fans.
And you know what, let’s add Giroux’s goal. Because two clips of awesomeness in one post just feels so right.
Isn’t playoff like hockey fun?
The Flyers are back in action Thursday in another home tilt against the Dallas Stars.
