PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dale Weise and the Flyers bonded on a recently completed road trip that righted their season. They displayed the renewed confidence with a comeback victory in their return to home ice.Shayne Gostisbehere scored on a one-timer 1:01 into overtime after Weise tied the game with 2:13 left in regulation Columbus Blue Jackets Hats Authentic , and Philadelphia rallied past the Arizona Coyotes 5-4 on Thursday night.Scott Laughton had two goals and Travis Konecny also scored for the Flyers (8-7-1), who began a five-game homestand — their longest of the season — after earning seven of a possible eight points on a four-game trip out West. Philadelphia went over .500 for the first time since winning its season opener against Vegas.“We’re a confident team,” coach Dave Hakstol said. “Guys in the room are tight. You either blow apart or come together. This was a good sign tonight. This was a character win.”Jakub Voracek set up the game-winner in the extra session with a pass to Gostisbehere in the slot, and the defenseman’s slap shot beat goalie Darcy Kuemper.“We had a purpose and it showed,” Gostisbehere said. “Huge for morale. Huge for us.”It appeared the Flyers were going to lose their third in a row at home until Weise tied it.Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s pass in the Arizona zone was intercepted by Gostisbehere.
