Talk about consistency the Flyers if nothing else have been consistent about one thing through all nine games this season. Every one of those games has been within a goal one way or the other in the third period. This time however the Flyers actually won 2-1 over the Rangers at Wells Fargo Center after losing four straight in which the score was 2-1 when the final period began. You wonder if this will give the Flyers some third-period confidence to produce wins hereafter. “I do believe that” coach Craig Berube said. “I thought we stopped playing in the third period at times. Just with the puck. Playing too cautious. Then we kind of picked it up again. It will definitely give the team some confidence.” Team captain Claude Giroux feels that way as well. “Finally going into the third tied then come out with a win it’s huge for the team’s confidence” Giroux said. “I think we played really good in the third.” They had six days to prep for the Rangers after losing to Pittsburgh last week. Berube said he thought the club was a bit rusty at times. Too many icings too many shots blocked -- 12 -- and they should have been more aggressive in shots. “We don’t put enough consistent pressure on the other team” Berube said. “We get in get some chances but we need to have more fight with the puck win some battles and keep some more zone time.” And they don’t know what to do with a gift either. In the final two minutes of play the Rangers were making a strong push before turning it over and allowing the Flyers a three-on-one at goalie Cam Talbot who was making his NHL debut.
