PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Flyers are enjoying a couple of well-deserved days off before they continue their six-game road trip in Dallas on Saturday.
Craig Berube’s squad picked up one of its more impressive wins of the season on Wednesday night, rallying from a 3-1 deficit in Detroit by scoring five unanswered goals and winning 6-3.
“We kind of needed that kind of win,” Flyers forward Sean Couturier told KYW Newsradio on Thursday. “Since the start of the year, we haven’t been getting those goals going once we’re trailing. But last night we kind of exploded and it feels good for our confidence.”
Couturier had a huge game against the Red Wings, scoring a pair of goals and adding a pair of assists. The 21-year-old forward did not score a goal in the first 19 games of this season. But since then he has five in his last nine games, including four in the last five.
“As a line, me, (Steve Downie and Matt Read), we’re doing a good job,” Couturier says. “We seem to find each other out there and we’re having a lot of fun right now. We’re just keeping it simple, trying to play in the (offensive) zone, trying to cycle the puck and bring pucks to the net and have traffic there. That’s how we’re creating some chances right now.”
