By The Numbers: Flyers 2, Panthers 1
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

 
Flyers 2, Panthers 1

3 – The Panthers (13) and Flyers (11) combined to put 24 shots on net in the first period of play. The leaders for each team contributed three each for their teams with Stephen Weiss the leading Cat and defenseman Kimmo Timonen the most for the Flyers.

151 – The NHL’s ironman was busy in the opening period. Cats defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was on the ice over half of the first 20 minutes (10:30). That was 2:31 (151 seconds) more than the next skater, fellow defenseman Keith Ballard who had 7:59 of ice time.

2 – Make that two straight games that Brett McLean has stung the Philadelphia Flyers. After scoring the game-winner on March 26 in Philadelphia, McLean scored the game’s first goal as he took a pretty centering pass from behind the net from rookie Michael Frolik and roofed it past Martin Biron for his seventh of the season 4:30 into the second period.

5 – It’s been a successful first season for Frolik with the Cats rookie registering his 42nd point (22 assists) when he set up McLean for the second period goal. Frolik has especially liked playing against Flyers, recording his fifth point (goal, four assists) in four games this season.

24 - An icing killed the Panthers with just over four minutes left in the second. Forced to take a face-off deep in their own end with players that were dead tired, the Cats gave up a goal with 4:15 left as Matt Carle’s pass to the center of the net went off of Joffrey Lupul’s skate and past Tomas Vokoun.

8 – Florida was busy in their own end, especially towards the end of the second as they combined for eight blocked Flyers shots. The Panthers had 12 through the first two periods. Shot-blocker Karlis Skrastins was the man of the period, blocking four Flyer shots alone.

45 – Philadelphia took the lead 7:32 into the final period thanks to a non call by the referees. What could have been an interference call on Scott Hartnell as he knocked down Jassen Cullimore who was no where near the puck, Jeff Carter took the Cats turnover in the zone, walked in and beat Vokoun short side for his 45th goal of the season (third against the Cats).

12 – Carter’s goal stood up as the game-winner for the Flyers as Biron stopped everything thrown at him by the Cats. The goal gave Carter a league-leading 12 game-winning goals on the season, two more than Brad Boyes (St. Louis), Patrick Marleau (San Jose) and Alex Ovechkin (Washington).

30 – The Cats and Flyers were close in almost every single category Tuesday night, including both finishing with 30 shots on net. Florida outshot Philadelphia by two (13-11) in the first and by one in the second (12-11). The difference was the final period where the Panthers only had five shots on net while the Flyers finished with eight.

2 (part II) – Going along with the shot count, it was just the second time all season that the Panthers finished with the same amount of shots as their opponent. It was Philadelphia’s seventh time that had happened. The other time came against Montreal on January 29 as the two teams had 36 shots in a 5-1 Panthers victory.

3 (part II) – Despite the loss, the Panthers made out against the Flyers this season, going 2-1-1 (five out of eight points) against the Broad Street Bullies. It was just the third time in the Cats 15 year history that the Cats had a winning record against Philadelphia. They also went 2-1-1 during the 1998-99 season and won all four matchups during the 2006-07 season.
