The Flyers’ best chances to pull even came with five minutes left to play. Henrik Lundqvist was forced to make a series of spectacular saves as Philadelphia skated on the power play. Lundqvist stopped all 10 shots he faced in the wild third period, and finished with 24 saves overall.
As the clock ticked off the final seconds off the penalty kill, The Garden Faithful erupted with chants of “Hen-rik! Hen-rik!”
“They were all over us there for a few minutes, but we held on,” said Lundqvist. “To come out of here with a win was huge.”
