Flyers score two goals in six seconds against Rangers (Video)

2 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers entered play on Saturday needing just one point against the New York Rangers to officially clinch a playoff spot.

Through two periods they are well on their way to doing that by jumping out to a 4-0 lead.

Claude Giroux scored a pair of goals in the early onslaught to become the third player in the league to hit the 100-point mark this season, joining Conor McDavid and Nikita Kucherov as he continues to make a pretty strong push for the Hart Trophy as the league MVP.

His second goal came during one particularly dominant stretch late in the second period when the Flyers scored two goals in just six seconds.

With the Flyers already leading 2-0, Michal Raffl scored his 13th goal of the season.

That was following by Giroux scoring his second of the game, and 33rd of the season, just six seconds later. You can see both goals in the video above.

Through two periods it has been a laughably one-sided game as the Flyers are not only up 4-0 on the scoreboard, they own a 31-12 edge in shots on goal.
