The Carolina Hurricanes and Philadelphia Flyers both boast a bevvy of enviably talented young players, so it only makes sense that a fresh face made the difference.

The win also is a boost for Michal Neuvirth, who hasn’t gained a victory since being in net for the Flyers’ season-opening win. Philly’s next game is a Wednesday Night Rivalry clash with the Detroit Red Wings on NBCSN.
