The Flyers bounce back from their worst loss of the season, beating the Ducks 5-2

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Kevin Hayes had his first career hat trick, Rasmus Ristolainen and Morgan Frost also scored and the Philadelphia Flyers bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 5-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.

The Flyers lost 6-0 at Boston in an afternoon game a day earlier that proved nothing more than a speed bump in their recent modest hitting streak. They still only have 19 wins, but have won four of five. They are 8-2 since an overtime win on Dec. 29 in San Jose and are playing hard under coach John Tortorella.

However, the more the Flyers win, the more it will cost them a better shot at winning the draft lottery. Philadelphia came in with just a 5% chance of winning the No. 1 pick, per Tankathon Tracking.

Torts doesn’t care.

He wants to win, now.

Hayes, selected to the NHL All-Star Game, made up for a turnover that led to a missed Anaheim breakaway when he scored his 11th goal of the season on a freebie from the Ducks in the opening period.
