The Philadelphia Flyers can not catch a break.
The Philadelphia Flyers prevailed, 4-3, in overtime against the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues in a hard-fought thriller on Wednesday night.
The Blues are also 6-2-0 in their last eight games versus the Flyers at Enterprise Center and are 5-for-12 on the power play in their last four games versus Philadelphia in St. Louis. During the said stretch of consecutive victories, the Blues unleashed a 36-15 scoring onslaught against their assignments capped by a 4-1 mastery of a star-crossed Anaheim on Monday.
Coach Alain Vigneault said he only climbed the ice a few minutes after the start of training when Hart got out.
The Canadiens are not that strong of a team on the road. Jakub Voracek scored the OT victor, while Tyler Pitlick, Michael Raffl and Travis Konecny added the other goals. Brian Elliott, playing for the first time since January 7, stopped 30 shots and improved to 6-2 in his career against his former team.

Northam to ban guns from Capitol grounds
The law does not prohibit guns from the grounds near the Capitol, which is why Northam signed an executive order for this weekend. Some localities have declared themselves "Second Amendment Sanctuary Cities" and pledged not to enforce state gun restrictions.
The Blues have been stellar on home ice this season but failed to set a franchise record by extending their winning streak to 10 after falling in overtime against the Flyers. The streak matched the longest in franchise history set from January 26 - February 26, 1991. The team that goes all the way and wins it plays a whole lot more games than most and does not get the benefit of resting over an extended period in the offseason. "They played really heavy for awhile there". How often do we see the team that won the President's Trophy for the best regular season record fall in the early rounds of the playoffs, and how often do we see teams come out of nowhere to go on and win it all?
With the Blues trailing 3-1, O'Reilly cut the deficit in half with his ninth midway through the third.
Justin Faulk opened the scoring with the lone goal of the first period. Faulk has 21 points in 31 career games against Philadelphia, the most points he has scored against any team. Pitlick scored on a wraparound attempt that bounced in off David Perron. On the other side of things, the Blues hoped to extend their current winning streak to five while also vying to earn their 13th win in their last 16 games. It was Raffl's fifth goal of the season and first in three games.
After surrendering the opening goal, Philadelphia scored three straight only to allow two in the final period to force the extra session. Konecny capitalized on a slick no-look pass by James van Riemsdyk. 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.
