The weakened Flyers also lost their second game after their forced break due to the coronavirus and are in third place in the East Division behind the Bruins and Washington.
While the first game on the shores of Lake Tahoe between Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche had to be interrupted for eight hours due to ice problems, the duel between the Flyers and the Bruins went almost smoothly. Due to the setting sun, which was reflected in the ice, the start was delayed by 20 minutes.
The outstanding player of the game was the Czech David Pastrnak with three goals. Raffl was 16:39 minutes on the ice with the Flyers and fired two shots on goal.
“It was beautiful, an incredible experience,” said Pastrnak of the outdoor game. Bruins team-mate John Moore was also enthusiastic: “I take my hat off to everyone who has made this possible. It was very special. I’ve played a few outdoor games, but that dwarfs everything. ”
