Jaromir Jagr and Wayne Simmonds showed up for Philadelphia providing assists, and Jakub Voracek scored a goal for the overhauled Flyers in their season opener Thursday against the Boston Bruins.
Ilya Bryzgalov, the biggest goalie free agent this offseason, stood tall for the Flyers in their 2-1 win over the Boston Bruins.
It may be too early to answer a lot of questions, but the overall landscape of orange is looking like an improvement from last year’s.
Ilya Bryzgalov made 22 saves to take the win in the opening night game in Boston, shaking Tim Thomas and the Stanley Cup champions.
Bryzgalov didn’t crack under pressure with a disadvantage of shots, 11-4, for the Flyers, fending off an onslaught of late Bruins offense.
Claude Giroux brought in the Flyers’ other goal while Brad Marchant picked up Bostons’ power play goal assisted by Tyler Seguin and Joe Corvo.
