Philadelphia Flyers Daily: Season Finale

The Philadelphia Flyers season ended Sunday Night in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

It’s been a bittersweet season for the Philadelphia Flyers who had many ups and downs that led to a disappointing season. Missing the postseason for the second time in three seasons is something this franchise isn’t accustomed too.

Dale Weise ended his season on a high note scoring twice in the shootout loss. Weise finished strong in his last 14 games scoring 6 of his 8 goals on the season in that span. Shayne Gostisbehere made possibly the Flyers play of the season at the blue line before setting up Wayne Simmonds for his 31st goal of the year.

Robert Hagg was solid in his NHL debut playing 21:19 taking five shots, blocking three and adding four hits on the night. Anthony Stolarz made 32 stops on route to a .914 SV%. Claude Giroux was the only Flyer to score in the shootout.

Bryan Bickell added a shootout goal and a win to his resume in his final NHL game due to a battle with MS. (We wish Bryan all the best). The Flyers Faithfully throughout the night cheered and gave Bickell a standing ovation as well as playing a tribute video on the Wells Fargo Centre scoreboard.

Barring any lottery balls falling the way of the Orange and Black, General Manager Ron Hextall will be on the clock at pick 13 at this year’s NHL Entry Draft.

With that, another Flyers seasons is in the books. Let the offseason begin in Philadelphia.
