Montreal Canadiens

One Period Was Enough To Beat The Flyers.

Francois GendronSenior Writer IOctober 13, 2008

The Montreal Canadiens ended their three-game road trip in Philadelphia as they faced the Flyers.

Many players wanted to avenge last season' elimination at the hands of the broad street bullies. After a tough first and second period, the Flyers were ahead by 2 to 1. Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored two quick goals to take the early lead into the contest.

But the Canadiens lit the lamp four times in the third period to finally win the contest. Roman Hamrlik and Mike Komisarek scored two goals in a 44 seconds span to definitely put the Canadiens ahead. Robert Lang added a goal for Montreal who was leading by 4 to 2 past the halfway mark into the third period.

Simon Gagné made the game interesting with a goal for the Flyers but it was too late. Steve Begin scored the insurance marker for Montreal during the final minute of the game.

Final score: Montreal Canadiens 5 - Philadelphia Flyers 3.

Montreal comes back home with a harvest of five points on a possible six. The next match for the Habs will be played on Wednesday as they will play their home opener against the Boston Bruins.
