UNIONDALE, N.Y. — This was the kind of career afternoon Flyers forward Sean Couturier never envisioned.
Could this week have exemplified the Flyers’ season any more than it did?
That didn't last long.
A day after being recalled from the Phantoms, forward Jason Akeson is headed back to Lehigh Valley.
A shootout win and an overtime thriller against a divisional foe all wrapped up with an embarrassing loss at home to a playoff contender.
What better way to mark the official midpoint of the season — Game 41 — than to host the one team occupying the space you covet in the division standings?
