Flyers rally for shootout win over Maple Leafs to stave off elimination

Flyers rally for shootout win over Maple Leafs to stave off elimination

Eliminate us? Not on our ice, you won’t.

That was the Flyers’ battle cry in Wednesday night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Faced with the prospect of being eliminated from Stanley Cup playoff contention, the Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit with a three-goal second period, then got one more in the third period to send the game into overtime and eventually a shootout.

Sean Couturier scored the only goal of the shootout and the Flyers came away with a 5-4 win at the Wells Fargo Center.

The win keeps the Flyers alive, but barely. Philadelphia doesn’t play again until a home game against the New York Rangers on Saturday. A lot could happen between now...
