RED-HOT FLYERS TAKE 4TH STRAIGHT, 3-2 IN OT IN DETROIT!

By Frank Applebaum

Travis Konecny scored 27 seconds into overtime for the second straight game to give the Flyers a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Flyers (24-16-8) have won four games in a row and eight of nine.

“We keep finding a way,” Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. “There were stretches where we weren’t great tonight, but we got two more points at the end of the night.”

Konecny scored 27 seconds into overtime for a 2-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Sunday. He also set up Sean Couturier’s goal 18 seconds into overtime in a 3-2 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.

“I don’t know what’s working — it might just be that we aren’t thinking out there, we’re just having fun,” Konecny said. “I always know [Couturier] is going to get me the puck in a good spot.”

Couturier chipped the puck away from Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin and over the blue line before Konecny could clear the Detroit zone. He got his right skate on the blue line before touching the puck, and then turned, skated to the right face-off circle, and beat Mrazek from the dot.

“We won a puck battle and we got it on net,” Hakstol said.

The call on the ice that Konecny tagged up and legally entered the zone was confirmed by video review.

“It was 100 percent onside,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “He made a heck of a play to stay onside, and the linesman made a heck of a call to call it onside, toell be honest.”

Jakub Voracek had a goal and an assist, Andrew MacDonald scored, and Couturier had two assists for Philly.
