NHL Playoffs 2014: Flyers tie score 1-1 on sneaky Matt Read goal (GIF)


The Philadelphia Flyers have their backs up against the plexiglass in Game 4 against the New York Rangers and are in danger of going down 3-1. But before that happens, guys like Matt Read have something to say about his team’s chances in this series and he helped stave off a downhill start by answering Dominic Moore’s goal in the first period to tie up the game 1-1.

The Flyers were just in the Stanley Cup four years ago but haven’t been back since. They took a dip last season and ended up missing the postseason entirely but they’re back and ready to try and reclaim some Stanley Cup glory. They have to get through Game 4 with a win though, as falling behind 3-1 to the Rangers is hardly an ideal way to start a Stanley Cup run.
