Cote, Flyers Knock Out Lightning

The Flyers defeated the Lightning 3-2 in what proved to be an exciting contest. The Flyers were led offensively by Jeff Carter, who scored a pair of goals, the second one the game winner in the final two minutes. Martin Biron had a nice game in goal, stopping 23 shots. The win kept the Flyers in the 8th seed, and moved them within one point of the Bruins for the 7th spot.

The highlight of the game was Riley Cote and his two-punch knockout of Andre Roy. Cote and Roy scrapped twice in the game, with the first match-up ending in a draw. The second fight lasted about 5 seconds when Cote landed two massive lefts that folded Roy up like an accordion. Roy was shown on the bench later in the game jawing and making throat slashing gestures at Cote. Roy was visibly shaking and so agitated that Lightning coach John Tortorella screamed at him and shoved him onto the bench. Luckily for him, Roy was benched for the remainder of the game, or Cote would have kicked his butt again.
