Flyers give up 3rd-period lead, can’t hand defending champs first loss

The Philadelphia Flyers gave up a third-period lead and couldn’t hand the defending champs their first loss in a game against the Vegas Golden Knights. The article was originally posted on NBC Sports Philadelphia.

The Flyers came close to an upset, but fell short with a tough 3-2 loss. This defeat followed a previous one-goal loss to the Dallas Stars in overtime. The Flyers currently have a record of 3-2-1 and will now return home for four consecutive games.

Noah Cates and Cam Atkinson scored the Flyers’ goals during the game, both in the first period. The Golden Knights, on the other hand, remain undefeated in their title defense with a perfect 7-0-0 record and a plus-15 goal differential.

Vegas ultimately secured the win with Shea Theodore’s game-winning goal, which was shot through heavy traffic. Carter Hart, the Flyers’ goaltender, had an impressive performance with 26 saves on 29 shots.

The young defensemen, Cam York and Egor Zamula, faced challenging moments during the game. Zamula was beaten by Paul Cotter’s highlight-reel move, while York had a costly turnover in the final minute of play.

Rasmus Ristolainen, who is currently on injured reserve, has yet to make his season debut. There is no update on his timeline for return as he recently suffered a setback in his recovery.

The Flyers will continue their season against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. Don’t forget to subscribe to our podcast for the latest updates on the team.
