The Blues are 4-0 in their last 4 overall and 13-3 in their last 16 when their opponent scores 5 goals or more in their previous game.

In overtime, Jakub Voracek (9th) won the game on the only shot on goal for either team.

Brian Elliott will now take over the goaltending duties for the Flyers, who also recalled Alex Lyon to be his backup goalie. However, the pick here is the game's final play: a well-orchestrated rush by Ivan Provororv (who had a monster game all around) and a ideal finish by Voracek. They defended well at five-on-five and generated solid puck possession for much of period. However, the Hurricanes, idle on Wednesday, hold both a tiebreaker edge and a game in hand on the Flyers. Both Elliott and Binnington were able to shut down a couple of unsafe chances the Blues and Flyers created in the opposing zone, combining for 21 saves in the first period alone, with Elliott stopping a majority of them with 13. The Flyers proved to themselves that they can skate with the NHL's best and can now remember this game when looking for confidence during the stretch run of the season. Finally, the Flyers broke through with a pair of goals. Pitlick scored when his attempt to center from behind the net deflected a Blues defender's leg ahead of Binnington. James van Riemsdyk redirected a pass from Claude Giroux through the crease to Konecny for a tap-in at the left post. The penalty kill was outstanding.

Now the Flyers return home to play the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, and must avoid a letdown game after claiming six of eight possible points against Washington, Tampa Bay (a 1-0 loss that came down to a single puck bounce), Boston and St. Louis.

The Blues had not lost a game at Enterprise Center since December 7.

Matt Niskanen took an unnecessary holding penalty, and then Phil Myers roamed too far as he slid himself way out of position in the same corner that Ivan Provorov was already working.

Sean Couturier has been on a tear for Philadelphia in his last outings. It was also Couturier's second straight multi-point game and 10th of the season. Coming off a 1-4-1 road trip, they were able to bounce right back and show they can beat the top teams in the league. Philly continued to put the heat on Binnington in the minutes following Pitlick's goal and went on to find another as Michael Raffl capitalized on a fat rebound near the side of the crease and the Orange and Black suddenly found themselves with a 2-1 lead heading into the third.
