Patrice Bergeron had a goal

The Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night host a Florida Panthers team still in search of their first win in the young season.The Panthers (0-2-1) have led in each of their games thus far before losing each by one goal.“Every time we take the lead Connor Brown Jersey , it’s tough when the momentum changes and the other team ties it up right after. It’s a pattern so far in the first three games,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner told the team’s website. “It’ something that’s got to change.”Article continues below ...Florida’s latest defeat came at home Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks. The Panthers led 2-1 in the second period before the Canucks tied the game on a penalty shot. Vancouver took the lead early in the third period and the Panthers fell 3-2.Florida generated 62 shot attempts in the loss. The Panthers failed to cash in on any of their five power plays — and are now 0-for-12 on the season — while the Canucks were 1-for-3.“I think there’s a lot of things we can be positive about and we’re playing pretty good hockey, but we’re kind of beating ourselves,” forward Vincent Trocheck said. “We’re giving teams just a few chances, but the chances we’re giving up are Grade-A quality opportunities that we can’t be giving up.”Panthers goalie James Reimer, who stopped 27 shots against Vancouver, is 0-2-1 with a 3.62 goals-against average and an .885 save percentage.The Flyers (2-3) played one of their strongest games of the season on Saturday but came away with a 1-0 loss to the visiting Vegas Golden Knights. The Flyers outshot the Knights 26-21 but couldn’t put a puck past goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.“We needed to be (better defensively). We got scored on a lot (in the first four games),” Jakub Voracek told the Courier Post. “We wanted to tidy it up a bit, which we did. The positive thing is that we didn’t take anything out of the offensive side. Obviously, we had a lot of chances and didn’t score. Another tough game (Tuesday).”The Flyers had surrendered 19 goals in their first four games.Coach Dave Hakstol was pleased with Saturday’s effort but would like to see the Flyers generate more offensive chances.“We can shoot the puck a little more, especially early in the hockey game, to establish a little more in the offensive zone,” he told Philly.com. “We can have a couple individual players play better.”Philadelphia — already missing forwards James van Riemsdyk (knee) and Nolan Patrick (upper body) got some good news Monday when winger Oskar Lindblom practiced and said he’ll be in the lineup against the Panthers.Lindblom was hit face-first into the boards Saturday by Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb and left the game.“After the hard hit Frederik Andersen Jersey , I felt a little shaky, but I got a good day off and I felt like I came back to normal pretty quick,” Lindblom told Philly.com after Monday’s practice.Brian Elliott has a 6-3-0 career record against the Panthers with a 2.41 goals-against average and .919 save percentage. Reimer is 4-4-3 with a 2.51 GAA and a .918 save percentage versus Philadelphia. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Michael Frolik went from healthy scratch to catalyst for the Calgary Flames.Frolik scored two goals to lead the Flames to a 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.“It feels good when you can help the team win the game,” the veteran winger said.Frolik had to watch his teammates edge the Avalanche 3-2 in overtime Saturday in Colorado.“I didn’t have the start I was looking for, but it’s a long season,” he said. “I just try to work hard in practice, get better every day and hopefully it’s going to turn around.“Tonight was a good start. Hopefully I can keep going.”Johnny Gaudreau collected his 100th NHL goal and rookie defenseman Juusu Valimaki scored his first for the Flames. Matthew Tkachuk added an empty-net goal.Mikael Backlund and Michael Stone each had two assists as Calgary won its second straight home game. Goaltender Mike Smith stopped 24 of 26 shots in the win.“I like the fact we have the ability to generate offense. Now, we’ll work on other things,” Calgary coach Bill Peters said. “We’re not quite there defensively or our play away from the puck in the neutral zone, but when we get there, we’ll be a much better team.”Patrice Bergeron had a goal and an assist for the Bruins. Brad Marchand also scored. Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask turned away 24 shots in the loss.“I don’t think we were as clean as we needed to be obviously against a team that forechecks and checks well,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “That was clearly an issue throughout the game. Execution wasn’t good enough to beat a good hockey team.”The Bruins trailed 4-2 heading into the final period.Marchand was lightly defended when he scored at 13:45 of the second Womens Jake Gardiner Jersey , taking a pass from Bergeron and scoring past Smith.Frolik nearly completed a hat trick on a short-handed breakaway, but his backhanded shot sailed over the Boston net. The Czech’s second goal came results from a Boston turnover in the offensive zone. Backlund flipped the puck across the slot, and Frolik tapped it over Rask’s stick at 3:32.On Boston’s first rush after killing off Calgary’s two-man advantage, Bergeron scored at 2:40 on a give-and-go with David Krejci.What appeared to be a goal by David Pastrnak late in the first period didn’t survive a coach’s challenge by Calgary’s Bill Peters. The Bruins were ruled offside.Valimaki’s first NHL goal gave the Flames a 3-0 lead at 16:08 of the first period.With Sam Bennett in front of Rask, the 20-year-old Valimaki’s shot from the top of the circle rolled over the goaltender and over the goal line.“I was happy actually finding out it was mine. Pretty awkward moment at the start because I didn’t know it was mine,” Valimaki said. “All the guys on the bench said ‘it’s yours’ and it felt great.”Gaudreau collected his milestone goal at 15:20. At the top of the crease, Sean Monahan batted the puck down low to the winger, and Gaudreau scored from a tough angle.Frolik had half an open net for a target following a nice passing play by Tkachuk and Backlund. Tkachuk hustled into the offensive zone to backhand the puck to Backlund, who was moving into the slot. Backlund flipped the puck over to Frolik to score at 4:36.NOTES: Flames: Gaudreau crumpled after taking a high hit from Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy in the third period.
