Claude Giroux then lit the lamp two times in a two and a half minute span to make it 3-0.
Sean Couturier finished the period with his first goal in 18 games off a rebound he was able to wrist in.
Up 4-0 early in the third, things got rocky for a bit, as Erik Gudbranson fired one past Mason from far up near the blue line a minute in. Four minutes later Jonathan Huberdeau would beat Mason after a turnover despite being well covered & being forced to the wing by Streit. Mason knew the shot went past his pads immediately. It was far too weak of a shot to be a goal.
With the lead only at 4-2 the Flyers cracked down to finish the game. Lecavalier found Tye McGinn, who beat Ellis with 4:54 left to make it 5-2. This was McGinn's first goal of his current stint with the Flyers & first since October 15. McGinn's current call-up was extended thanks to Zac Rinaldo's actions Sunday, taking him out of the picture for 4 games.
The Flyers are now guaranteed a playoff spot and an eventually showdown in the first round with the Rangers seems to be looming. This is no time to lay off the gas. The Flyers stay in Florida (like the Soul do this week) to play Tampa Bay Thursday at 7:30.
