Captain Mike Richards had two goals, one of which was shorthanded. It is his sixth shorthanded goal of the season, which is tops in the NHL. He also had three assists, making him collect a career high five points.
Marty Biron saved 39 of 42 shots. It seems as though he is starting to pick it up, which is ironic because about a week or two ago, everyone was saying Antero Nittymaki is taking over the No. 1 spot. He goes down with the flu, Biron steps in and shines.
So, who do you go with? I guess only time will tell. But, whoever it is, they have to stick with. They can't go back and forth, back and forth. In my opinion, if they want to go far in the playoffs, they have to stick with a solid No. 1 and not flip flop.
Tonight's two points puts the Flyers three points ahead of the Rangers for fourth place in the East. They are currently six points behind the third place Devils for first place in the Atlantic Division.
