The Philadelphia Flyers had just six shots on goal through 40 minutes on Tuesday.

The Flyers had 10 shots in the third period to avoid setting a new franchise-low for shots in a game, but they still lost 5-1 to the Hurricanes. "Just a real dismal effort on all fronts," said Andrew MacDonald. "We didn’t move our feet, they were all over us, we didn’t forecheck, we didn’t defend well. All around, a terrible game." That loss snapped the Flyers' three-game winning streak and brought them to 25-20-6.

He's expected to pair with Ivan Provorov.
