The Philadelphia Flyers have been on a role since November 1, and have climbed back to the .500 mark with a 12-12-2 record. They got to the even mark by defeating the Nashville Predators in a shootout on Saturday. With the Flyers trailing by one and in need of a goal, Andrej Meszaros came up with a dandy play behind Nashville’s net before finding Sean Couturier for the equalizer.
Here’s a look at the stellar pass. We’ll wait while you take it in two or three times.
That’s a big goal with less than seven minutes to play. Neither team would score for the remainder of regulation or in overtime, and Steve Mason came up big in the shootout to seal the victory.
Couturier has scored in two consecutive games now and has Philly’s local media buzzing about his emerging scoring touch. He’s always been a strong two-way pivot for the Flyers, but at the ripe age of 20, he’s starting to come into his own as a scorer as well. While Couturier is only on pace for nine goals at the moment, he struggled in the early goings of the season just like every other Philadelphia forward.
Does the kid have a surprising and unlikely 20-goal season up his sleeve?
