With their 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday the Philadelphia Flyers won back-to-back games for the first time this season, and it was an unlikely player providing the offense.
Both goals were scored by tough-guy Tom Sestito, including the game-winner late in the third period (shown above), and they were both pretty skillful plays.
This is surprising -- if not shocking -- because entering Tuesday's game Sestito had scored just two goals in his entire career (granted, it was only 31 games over parts of five seasons) and he hadn't scored a goal in the NHL since Dec. 23, 2010 when he was a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
What's interesting is looking over his career in the minor leagues and his junior career is that he's actually had some pretty solid goal-scoring numbers. During his last year in the Ontario Hockey League he scored 42 goals in 60 games for the Plymouth Whalers and has netted 47 goals in 245 American Hockey League games.
Not going to lie: I didn't think he had that sort of skill. I'm guessing Anders Lindback and the Lightning didn't expect it either.
