The Flyers took on Danny Briere and the Montreal Canadiens last night looking to bounce back after Wednesday night's thrashing in Chicago. Michael Raffl got the Flyers on the board in the first period with his second goal of the year. Claude Giroux gave the Flyers some insurance in the second period with his sixth goal of the year. Montreal would get one back in the third but the Flyers went on to win 2-1. More here.
