What cut? Schenn scores in overtime for Flyers’ 3-2 victory in New Jersey

Despite allowing a goal in the final minute of regulation, the Philadelphia Flyers managed to leave the Prudential Center with the win, as Brayden Schenn potted the game-winner in overtime for the 3-2 decision over the New Jersey Devils. The tally gave the younger Schenn, who suffered a noticeable cut from a skate in the mid section, a two-point affair, while both Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell scored for Philly in the win.
