The rookie got it started. The stars finished it.
The Philadelphia Flyers looked like they were headed for a second straight loss, down three goals to the Buffalo Sabres on home ice entering the third period of Tuesday’s game.
But the Flyers, who played Monday in Montreal, came roaring back in the third period.
Travis Konecny began the comeback, scoring his first career NHL goal. He had five assists coming into this game, but finally buried his first goal on a nifty deflection in front. The milestone moment got the Flyers on the board.
Giroux and Jakub Voracek scored in the shootout to complete the comeback and give Philadelphia a 4-3 victory.
