PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The biggest cheers from Flyers fans Monday night came when Gritty wrapped a blindfold around his googily eyes “Bird Box” style and kicked a Nerf football into the stands on a field-goal attempt as part of the “Cody Parkey Challenge.”This is how sad the season has become for Philadelphia — fans save their loudest cheers to rally around the local football team.Jordan Binnington became the latest goalie to stymie the Flyers. He stopped 25 shots for a shutout in his first NHL start to lead the St. Louis Blues past the Flyers 3-0 in a listless game between two of the worst teams in the league.Brayden Schenn New Jersey Devils Hoodies Authentic , Vladimir Tarasenko and David Perron scored to make it an easy night for Binnington.“Guys are thrilled for him, happy for him,” Schenn said. “He’s worked hard to get to this point and he finally got rewarded.”The Blues’ win gave them 38 points and moved them past Los Angeles out of last place in the Western Conference. Only Ottawa has fewer points than the Flyers (36) in the East after Philadelphia’s seventh straight loss. Both teams fired their coaches this season.Binnington, a third-round pick in the 2011 draft, became the 35th goalie in NHL history to record a shutout in his first career start. The 25-year-old Binnington had played just two games in mop-up duty this season behind Jake Allen. He was sent to the minors in December to keep fresh and earned three wins with a shutout to earn AHL player of the week honors. He was called up — and got the call to start against the hapless Flyers.“I was definitely excited to finally get the call, and it was a long road,” Binnington said. “I’m happy where I’m at right now and I’m hoping to get some more action and be a part of the solution on the rise of the Blues.”Blues coach Craig Berube said Binnington showed no signs of nerves.“I thought he was solid all game,” Berube said. “Very confident, even coming out and playing the puck. He moved it really well and crisply. He looked really good.”Schenn scored his ninth goal of the season on a rebound off the Carter Hart’s pads 41 seconds into the second period for the 1-0 lead. Tarasenko scored midway through the third to become the 20th active player to score against 30 other teams while playing for one franchise. Perron scored an empty-netter in the final minutes.Binnington wasn’t challenged much in a half-empty Wells Fargo Center. Once among the NHL’s loudest and craziest buildings New Jersey Devils Hats Authentic , the crowds have dwindled with each defeat and the few fans that showed on Monday mostly sat on their hands and booed.They used to root for Schenn when he starred for the Flyers for six seasons. He scored 59 points in 2015-16 and 55 points the next season before he was traded for the Blues. The Flyers had another reminder of better days on the Blues bench: Berube led the Flyers to the playoffs in 2014 and was fired the following the season. The Flyers fired his successor, Dave Hakstol, last month and have failed to win a playoff series since 2012.The Flyers fell to 3-6-2 under interim coach Scott Gordon.“I think there’s been good communication, but we have to be better as players,” Flyers forward Scott Laughton said. “It’s not up to him. We have to be better as players in this locker room. We have to do a job and we’re not doing it right now.”The Flyers have scored only 12 goals over their seven-game losing streak, their longest losing streak since they went 0-5-5 over November-December last season.The biggest cheers came when Gritty trolled Parkey, the maligned Chicago Bears kicker. Fans burst into the “Fly! Eagles! Fly!” fight song when Parkey’s missed kick was shown on the video screen.The Flyers were booed by the die-hards that stuck around as they trudged off the ice, a familiar scene in Philly.“When we play at home, we’re having a tough time Custom New Jersey Devils Jerseys ,” Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. “We’re trying to make the extra play, we’re trying to push it. It’s kind of coming back in our face.”NOTES: Blues F Alexander Steen left with an undisclosed injury. … Blues C Tyler Bozak missed the game with the flu.UP NEXTBlues: Host Dallas on Tuesday.Flyers: Play Tuesday at Washington._____ St. Louis is singing the blues coming into Las Vegas on Friday night to face the Golden Knights off a 1-0 loss to a Chicago Blackhawks team that had lost eight straight games while Vegas looked golden again in a 5-0 rout of Anaheim.Both games occurred Wednesday night, giving St. Louis (6-7-3, 15 points) and Vegas (8-10-1) one day to prepare for their encounter at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.Speaking of golden, Vegas veteran Marc-Andre Fleury debuted his glittering gold goaltending pads in the win over the Ducks, a game in which he had a 29-save shutout. Vegas scored on three of its first four shots of the second period to cruise to the lopsided win.Article continues below ...The five goals by the Knights match a season high set Nov. 8 in a 5-3 victory at Ottawa.“I don’t know if it was the pads or the way the guys played, you know?” Fleury said with a laugh. “Definitely a good feeling to get a win again and not give up too many goals there.”The Vegas locker room had the same jovial feel of last year’s historic success in the Golden Knights’ inaugural season. The team needed a lift with it now tied for sixth in the Pacific Division with Arizona.The Golden Knights are six points from division leader Vancouver (10-6-3, 23 points) but also the same distance from last-place team Los Angeles (5-11-1, 11 points).Vegas center Cody Eakin scored twice against Anaheim for his first multi-goal game since March 8 at Detroit. He has scored points in five consecutive games. Alex Tuch and defenseman Nick Holden finished with a goal and an assist.“I’m just having fun www.officialislanders.com ,” Eakin told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I think that’s important to enjoy it and have fun. Pucks are going in right now. There will be times when they aren’t, but I’ll try and ride it.”The Blues, meanwhile, did not have fun in the loss to Chicago, and they now enter Friday’s game on a two-game losing skid and in last place in the Central Division (three points behind the struggling Blackhawks).To make matters worse, the Blues were shut out for the first time this season at the hands of Chicago, which has been forced to already make a coaching change.St. Louis has scored two goals or fewer in three of its past five games. The Blues have lost three of those games.“We just have to find ways to win right now,” St. Louis coach Mike Yeo said. “That’s what it comes down to.”The Blues are having trouble putting games together in which their offense and defense come together.They had a 4-1 recent stretch in which they had goal totals of seven, five New York Islanders T-Shirts Authentic , four and four. Their defense, however, struggled in those games. Now, their quality defense is masking an offense that is finding it hard to score.The Blues have scored 52 goals but have allowed 52. They are the only team besides Chicago (minus-15 goal differential) that is not on the plus side of goal differential in the Central Division.“We’ve been scoring a lot of goals this year,” center Tyler Bozak said. “We had some chances (against Chicago) and weren’t able to finish it off. We’ve been scoring tons of goals and giving up a lot and then we can’t score and we only give up one. It’s a tough loss. I thought we did a lot of good things, but we have to get back to work tomorrow.”
