PHILADELPHIA (AP) — After making 29 saves and picking up his first NHL victory, Anthony Stolarz said he never gave much thought about becoming the first New Jersey native to tend goal in the NHL.
"What I'll remember most is winning," Stolarz said after Philadelphia Flyers' 5-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night. "Being able to win your first start is huge for me and my confidence."
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — As soon as Claude Giroux got the puck in overtime, Jakub Voracek headed to the net and got ready. It paid off.
Voracek scored in overtime after Mark Streit tied it with 1:02 left in regulation in the Philadelphia Flyers' 4-3 comeback victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
