Brady Tkachuk leads Senators past Flyers in finale

Brady Tkachuk had one goal and one assist, Josh Norris and Travis Hamonic added one goal apiece and the Ottawa Senators defeated the host Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 in the final regular-season game for both teams on Friday.

Tkachuk reached the 30-goal plateau for the first time in his career.

Austin Watson added an empty-net goal and Thomas Chabot had three assists for the Senators (33-42-7, 73 points).

Senators goaltender Anton Forsberg made 32 saves.

Owen Tippett had one goal and one assist and James van Riemsdyk contributed one goal for the Flyers (25-46-11, 61 points).

Ivan Provorov chipped in with two assists.

Flyers goaltender Martin Jones stopped 32 shots.

Soon after the Senators had several solid scoring chances on the power play, van Riemsdyk connected for the Flyers with the extra skater at 18:31 of the first period. It was van Riemsdyk’s 24th goal of the season, which was a nifty shot between his legs.

Tkachuk was aggressive throughout the opening 20 minutes with three shots on goal.

Tkachuk drew a roughing penalty from Egor Zamula at 7:30 of the second period for the Senators’ third power play. The Flyers killed off the penalty rather easily.

The Senators equalized at 1 when Norris scored at 11:51 of the second.

Tippett skated in and took a backhand shot as he went sprawling into the side of the goalpost at 1:44 of the third. Tippett remained down for a few minutes before skating to the bench.

Just 12 seconds later, the Senators went ahead 2-1 when Hamonic fired a slap shot on the short side of Jones and into the net.

Kevin Hayes ripped a wrist shot on goal at 8:30 and Travis Konecny also had a couple of chances on the rebound but couldn’t convert.

The Flyers held a two-man advantage for 54 seconds at 11:44 and Tippett responded with a power-play goal with a slap shot from the point at 12:33.

Tkachuk responded for the Senators with a power-play goal at 16:38 – a snappy writer from the faceoff dot – for a 3-2 lead.

Watson scored on an empty net at 18:15 for a 4-2 advantage.
