Giroux Gets OT Goal In Flyers’ 4-3 Win Over Ducks
Claude Giroux scored 3:29 into overtime and the Philadelphia Flyers rallied from a three-goal deficit for a 4-3 victory Friday night over the Anaheim Ducks, who collapsed in coach Bruce Boudreau’s debut.
Jaromir Jagr scored two power-play goals and Scott Hartnell tied it with 3:02 left in regulation for the Flyers, who trailed 3-0 late in the second period.
Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves in Philadelphia’s return from a five-day break.
Teemu Selanne and Andrew Cogliano scored first-period goals and Jonas Hiller stopped 43 shots for the Ducks, who lost for the 17th time in 20 games.
Anaheim couldn’t maintain its fast start under Boudreau, who replaced Randy Carlyle late Wednesday night after getting fired by Washington on Monday morning.
