DETROIT – With his team down by a goal after two periods, Philadelphia Flyers coach Craig Berube had a message for his team.
” ‘Stay out of the penalty box,’ ” Berube said he told his players between the second and third periods.
Apparently, they listened.
Sean Couturier had two goals and two assists and the Philadelphia Flyers scored four goals in third period to rally for a 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
“I liked our game (after two periods), we were playing a good game,” Berube said. “You can’t go in the box three or four times (a) period and give them 5-on-3s.”
The Flyers took five penalties and surrendered a 5-on-3 power-play goal in the second.
Couturier got the winner at 8:28 of the third period by tipping in a shot.
“It’s (his big night) good for the confidence. But this was a team game and team success,” Couturier said. “All four lines were rolling. We just wanted to get some chances and capitalize on some chances.”
Couturier’s line had a big night as his linemates, Scott Hartnell and Matt Read, each had a goal and two assists.
