JVR returns, but Devils down Flyers 3-0
The Flyers have dropped two at home where they are 4-6. Last night they fired 29 shots on Devils goalie Kincaid but failed to solve him.
The Flyers did have a first period power play goal disallowed when JVR brushed against Kincaid. Seemed to be a perfect screen, but between that and the 5 or so post the Flyers hit it was not their night.
JVR's return pushed Jori Lehtera to the bench, and Andy MacDonald played for Radko Gudas who was sick.
Saturday vs Lightning 1pm
Against the Devils Travis Konecny was even with 2 shots on goal, 2 hits and 2 blocked shots in almost 19 minutes of ice time.
