Scott Hartnell, Bryaden Schenn, Wayne Simmonds, and Jakub Voracek all had a goal and an assist in the game. Claude Giroux added two assists while goalie Steve Mason made 32 saves on 33 attempts.

The Blues jumped out to a 1-0 lead after Jaden Schwartz’ goal in the first period, but the Flyers went on to score three straight goals on Blues goalie Ryan Miller

After a rough start to the season that included a coaching change, the Flyers are one of the hottest teams in the NHL, as they’ve gone 12-2-1 in their last 15 games, and have won their past five games.

With 12 games left in the regular season, the Flyers are second behind the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Metropolitan Divison, and now hold the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings with 83 points.
