- James van Riemsdyk scored two goals, including the game-winner with 4:29 remaining, and the Philadelphia Flyers won for the 10th time in 12 games with a 5-4 victory against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday. Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier each had a goal and an assist for Philadelphia (26-24-7), and Anthony Stolarz made 35 saves. But the Flyers rallied when Giroux tied the game 4-4 with a slap shot at 6:30, and van Riemsdyk scored his second of the game off a rebound at 15:31 for the 5-4 final.

James van Riemsdyk had two goals and an assist, Jake Voracek added a goal and two assists, Shayne Gostisbehere had a goal and an assist, and Michael Raffl and Travis Konecny also scored for Philadelphia.

Gostisbehere got the rally started with a slap shot with 9:08 remaining, and van Riemsdyk tipped in his second of the night to tie the score with 7:23 to go.

Three Stars

1. James van Riemsdyk, Philadelphia Flyers. With less than 10 minutes to play the Flyers trailed by a pair of goals and looked to be headed to a tough a loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was at that point that they rallied with five goals in the remaining nine minutes to steal a 7-4 win and win their third game in a row. van Riemsdyk was one of the many stars for the Flyers, scoring a pair of goals and adding an assist in the win. His second goal of the game was the game-tying goal late in the third period.

2. Jonathan Drouin, Montreal Canadiens. Big win for the Canadiens on Saturday night as they handed their arch-rivals from Toronto a 5-2 loss. Drouin played the starring role with a pair of goals to continue what has been a great start to the season for him. He is now up to five goals and 10 total points in the Canadiens’ first 11 games and looks like he could be on his way to a much-needed breakout season in Montreal.

A flyer has also emerged that calls upon Antifa to dress up like MAGA supporters in order to impersonate them while instigating violence: The only violence committed today was the Capitol Police shooting and reportedly killing an unarmed female Trump supporter who was shot in the neck.

3. Roman Josi, Nashville Predators. Josi has been outstanding for Nashville so far this season and had one of his best games on Saturday with a goal and two assists in a come-from-behind 3-2 overtime win against the Tampa Bay Lightning. That performance gives him 13 points on the season and puts him in a tie for the team lead in scoring alongside Ryan Ellis. That puts the Predators in the rather uncommon position of having their top two-scorers both being defenders.

Highlights of the Night

HK lawmakers dragged from chamber as leader heckled for second day

  HK lawmakers dragged from chamber as leader heckled for second day Pro-democracy lawmakers were dragged out of Hong Kong's legislature by security guards on Thursday after they heckled the city's pro-Beijing leader for a second day running, the latest outburst of political rancour in the strife-torn city. Lam was unable to give a State of the Union-style policy speech on Wednesday after pro-democracy lawmakers, who form a minority on the pro-Beijing-stacked legislature, repeatedly interrupted her. Instead, she was forced to deliver the address in a pre-recorded video.

Toronto rallied from there for its goalie, battling back to a 7-6 victory that halted a two-game losing streak. “The guys did a heck of a job for Freddie. Got a win for Freddie,” said coach Mike Babcock. By the time Shayne Gostisbehere had made it 5-2 Philadelphia on Friday, Andersen had ceded 13 goals on the last 52 shots he faced for a brutal .730 save percentage. A pair of goals earlier by James van Riemsdyk both beat Andersen five-hole from close range, while Jakub Voracek and Radko Gudas scored on an unscreened Andersen who was just a step behind the shot.

Kevin Hayes was one of the Flyers’ big offseason acquisitions, signing a massive contract after his free agent rights were acquired in a trade. He made a big impact on Saturday, scoring a shorthanded game-winning goal. It was an absolutely beautiful play, too.

Speaking of beautiful game-winning goals, here is Montreal’s Joel Armia scoring just seven seconds into the third period against Toronto.

Ellis scored the game-winning goal for Nashville on the power play, and he made it look easy.

Blooper of the Night

Dominik Kahun scored his first goal as a member of the Penguins on Saturday night and it officially goes in the books as the game-winning goal. It was a pretty bizarre play.

New York Rangers recall young prospects Chytil, Lindgren

  New York Rangers recall young prospects Chytil, Lindgren The Rangers hope these young prospects can add scoring to a team struggling on offense.Chytil, 20, actually played the whole 2018-19 season with the Rangers, scoring 23 points in 75 games. At times, however, he looked overmatched and with the team’s added depth up front this season, he was asked to start the year in the AHL. That start went quite well with nine points in nine games for the Hartford Wolf Pack, and expectations are once again sky-high for the young Czech forward.

Trump in Kentucky: Protesters and Trump supporters trade insults, talk impeachment debate .
To many, the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry was the latest and greatest outrage as they waited for Trump to arrive for his rally in Lexington.But as supporters lined up for President Donald Trump’s election-eve rally for Gov. Matt Bevin, the Trump faithful were far more interested in talking impeachment than Bevin.
