The Philadelphia offense got going earlier when Jon Rineer won a face-off deep in the Renegades zone back to Patrick Price who sent the puck back to David Wilf at the point. Wilf sent a wrist shot towards the net that was beautifully tipped by Ronnie Higgins and into the back of the net for Higgins first career goal in the black and orange. Elliott Schon continued his scoring ways as the first year forward took a feed in the slot from line mate Jake Reifer to collect his 5th goal in as many games, Dylan Sangmeister who got the play started by creating a turnover in the neutral zone was also credited with an assist. The Little Flyers defense did a good job in the first period by limiting the Renegades to just five shots on goal in front of Joel Keller. Tyler Ruppert increased the Little Flyers lead to less than five minutes into the second period.
The Oilers have found another forward to dependably put pucks in the net in veteran scorer James Neal, who has already scored more goals than he had all last year. It's still early, but if they can keep it up they could see a successful campaign reminiscent of their season.
Ahead of them lies a date with the Flyers, who have lost their last two games incuding a Tuesday night tilt in Calgary.
Carter Hart, 21, recorded a shutout in his second start this season and offered a save of the year candidate to boot. He's scheduled to start against Edmonton Wednesday.
