It’s amazing how bad the Flyers have been in shootouts over time, especially considering that Claude Giroux has been on the team since the 2008-09 season.

The Flyers, who again came from behind (this time, thanks to a tying goal with 58 seconds left from Matt Read), now sit at 6-5-1 on the season.
