In a game that started better than Saturday’s, the results were much different as the Flyers fell 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens.

The Flyers had one of their best first periods of the season keeping the high scoring Canadiens off the board through 20 minutes of play, but it didn’t last long.

Five minutes into the second period, Shea Weber fired a blast from the point that deflected off the stick of Brayden Schenn and past Steve Mason.

Six minutes later the Flyers stormed back and got a goal of their own as Jake Voracek deflected a Claude Giroux shot from the point past Carey Price to tie the game at one.

The difference maker came with just about seven minutes left in the third period as Sean Couturier took a tripping penalty. It only took four seconds for the Canadiens to take advantage as Alexander Radulov fired a rocket from the point that was deflected in by Brendan Gallagher for his fourth goal of the year and a 2-1 lead.

The Flyers pushed hard to get the game tied late in the third but it was Carey Price who denied Shayne Gostisbehere on a great opportunity.

That save led to a lob out of the zone right on to the stick of Alexander Radulov, who capped off his three point night by adding an empty net goal, sealing the Canadiens 3-1 win.

Notable performances: 

Jake Voracek: 1 G, 5 SOG

Brandon Manning: 1 A +1,

Steve Mason: 30 SV, .938 SV%

Next Game: The Flyers are right back at it tomorrow night as they take on the Buffalo Sabres at 7:00 PM inside the Wells Fargo Center. They begin a three game home stand.
