How hot is 20-year-old Flyers goalie Carter Hart?
He joined Jocelyn Thibault as the only two goalies who’ve managed personal winning streaks of eight games before age 21.
The Flyers are now 9-0-1 in their last 10 games, as the only thing that ended their winning streak was a (narrow) shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings.
Anthony Stolarz was the goalie who absorbed that loss, though not before making some impressive saves.
During Hart’s own eight-game winning streak, he’s managed an impressive .934 save percentage. There have been other red-hot goalies during that span – Jordan Binnington, Carey Price, and Robin Lehner also stand out – but only Hart has eight wins since Jan. 14.
Hart has been impressive when you zoom out to the full 2018-19 season too, at least when you keep things to the NHL. In 17 games, Hart’s record is 11-5-1, and his save percentage is at .926.
