The Philadelphia Flyers battle the Anaheim Ducks in NHL Hockey at the Wells Fargo Center Thursday.
The Anaheim Ducks bring NHL hockey to Philadelphia looking for a win after a 2-1 defeat at New Jersey on Tuesday. Neither squad lit up the scoreboard, especially the Ducks who actually scored first in the opening frame on a Sami Vatanen tally but the Ducks never scored again and John Gibson’s 28 stop effort wasn’t enough to save Anaheim from an 0-3-1 start. The Devils goals came on the power play with both coming off the stick of Taylor Hall which was just enough to make a winner of Corey Schneider’s 23 saves to lift NJ to 1-1-1. The Devils took advantage of the man advantage while the Ducks wee down a man seven times and goalie John Gibson needed more help.
