Going into Saturday night's matchup against the Seattle Kraken, many were talking about how the team would respond to Cal Petersen getting the start at goal. With Petersen making his first NHL start since Nov. 11 against the Los Angeles Kings, many were wondering just how sharp Petersen would be. As the Flyers earned their third straight win, Petersen turned some heads with his performance.

As the Flyers cruised to their third straight win, goalie Cal Petersen turned in a stellar performance in a time where the Flyers are desperately needing a number two goalie. Petersen recorded 17 of 19 saves with a .895 save percentage on Saturday night.
Not only did Petersen have a stellar performance, but his focus was on just how good the Flyers D played overall. From Nick Seeler getting the league lead in blocked shots to Ryan Poehling netting another shorthanded goal, the Flyers defense is no doubt the strength of this team.
"The guys made it easy for me, not a lot of odd man rushes. Just made the saves I needed to make."

Petersen's performance came at an opportunistic time for the Flyers who really need a strong number two goalie to be able to give Samuel Ersson rest and avoid burnout as the Flyers now attack life without Carter Hart.
"I'm really just taking it day by day, but I understand the opportunity. It's one I've waited for a long time. I'm still going to have the day to day mentality, but it's an opportunity I don't want it to go to waste."
