Today's matinee at the intersection of Broad and Pattison was no different. As usual, it ends up costing the Flyers, as Evander Kane scored off of a nice feed from behind the net. Ilya Bryzgalov allowed just one goal on twelve shots in the first, and thanks to a goal scored in a scrum in front of the net by Brayden Schenn, the Flyers headed to the locker room tied at one. Early into the second period, a bad turnover by Brayden Schenn led to a Winnipeg goal scored by Olli Jokinen. About ten minutes later into the period, a one-timer fired by Grant Clitsome was deflected in front by Alexander Burmistrov to put the visitor up 3-1.  With a little more than five minutes left in the second, Claude Giroux brought the Flyers to within one on a power-play goal. Kimmo Timonen and Jakub Voracek picked up the assists on his bardown rocket from the top of the circle. The Winnipeg Jets were 4-0 when leading after two, and the Flyers had not won a game when trailing after two.  Six minutes into the third period, Brayden Schenn beat Ondrej Pavelec to score his second of the game. The goal came on the power-play on the rush as a result of a beautiful feed from Jake Voracek, his second assist of the afternoon. Voracek earned his third assist of the afternoon shortly after, as Wayne Simmonds buried a power-play goal on a feed from Brayden Schenn. His seventh goal of the season put his team up 4-3. Ilya Bryzgalov and the Flyers were able to hold off the Jets and Zac Rinaldo buried the puck into an empty net with a second left. The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Winnipeg Jets, 5-3. After being pulled in Thursday night's embarrassing loss to the Florida Panthers, Ilya Bryzgalov played a pretty solid game. He had a .919 save percentage, stopping 34 of 37 shots faced. Also having solid games, were Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek, who each contributed three points to the win. Scott Hartnell played his first game since January 22nd today, and saw 14:54 of ice time. He appeared to be fine, as his five shots on net were second the second highest on the team (Giroux, 6).  For the first time this season, the Flyers have brought themselves into a playoff position. They have a chance to pull to .500 on Monday evening when they take on James van Riemsdyk and the sixth place Maples Leafs. In their last meeting, Toronto surpassed the Flyers 5-2, so beating this sizzling team will be an onerous task.
