Flyers - Senators Recap Quickie

The Flyers picked up their second straight win beating the Senators 3-2 in a shootout to keep their very faint playoff hopes on life support for another day. Just over two minutes after the Senators took a 1-0 lead in the first period Brayden Schenn tied it 1-1. The Senators took a 2-1 lead in the third only to see Jordan Weal tie it 2-2 just under two minutes later. Neither team could capitalize on their chances in the OT period so off to the shootout it went. After scoring the tying goal for the Flyers Jordan Weal would score the only goal in the shootout to give the Flyers the win, and improve to a shocking 7-4 in shootouts this season. The Flyers improve to 36-32-8 (36-40),and the Senators drop to 41-25-9 (41-34).
