HEY, AT LEAST THE FECKLESS FLYERS SCORED A GOAL, GOT A POINT!

By Jenny Masters

Here’s a memo to Flyers fans:

Be happy with the point they got last night in losing to the Panthers.

At least they scored a goal!

Aaron Ekblad scored 2:39 into overtime and the Florida Panthers won their record-tying 11th straight home game to start the season by topping the Flyers 2-1.

After a faceoff win in the 3-on-3 session, Ekblad worked a give-and-go with Jonathan Huberdeau, zipping in the winner from the low slot for his sixth of the season.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 32 saves and became the first Florida goalie to record points in 11 straight starts (9-0-2).

Joel Farabee broke a five-game streak without a goal in he first period, and Travis Konecny and Ivan Provorov had assists for the Flyers, who dropped their fourth straight (0-3-1).

With Carter Hart starting in net in Tuesday night’s 4-0 loss in Tampa, Martin Jones took the crease and made 43 saves.

Derick Brassard (lower body) sat out for the Flyers and Morgan Frost — a Wednesday morning call-up — played.

The Chicago Blackhawks — they actually went by Black Hawks then — started 11-0-0 at home in 1963-64. The original version of the Ottawa Senators franchise started 10-0-0 at home in 1925-26, and the Montreal Canadiens did the same in 2016-17.

The Panthers could not take advantage of total puck possession and offensive zone time over the opening seven minutes.

After Jones stopped Huberdeau on a 2-on-1, Farabee took a stretch pass from Konecny and scored his fifth on a breakaway at 7:33.

Bennett finally scored in the third on Florida’s first power play, tapping in Duclair’s diagonal pass 24 seconds into the man advantage.

The tally snapped a seven-game skid without scoring on the power play.
