Despite a solid first two periods, the Flyers blew a 2-1 third period lead and fell to the visiting Vancouver Canucks, 3-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. Here's what you need to know:
TIME AND TYE MCGINN: He’s played just two games this season, but Tye McGinn is the Flyers’ leading goal-scorer. McGinn, 23, notched the first two-goal game of his NHL career on Tuesday night against the Canucks. Both of his goals on Tuesday night came off rebounds - just like his backhand tally in Detroit on Saturday. McGinn now has 6 goals in 20 career NHL games and he doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.
BRUTAL BOUNCE: Exactly 10 seconds after McGinn opened the scoring, Jannik Hansen’s routine dump-in caromed off the stanchion in the glass directly to Ryan Kesler in the slot. Steve Mason was busy getting ready to play the puck behind the net and there was nothing he could do.
CO-BURNED: McGinn gave the lead back to the Flyers early in the second period, and they held it until Braydon Coburn left Chris Higgins all alone in the slot with 12:29 to play. Henrik Sedin maneuvered slyly behind the net and found Higgins for the one-timer past Mason.
SCRAMBLEY THIRD: As a whole, the Flyers' defensive zone coverage was shoddy in the third period. After a flurry of scoring chances, Kesler finally cashed in on the go-ahead goal off a Higgins rebound.
