It sure didn’t look like it for a while as two of the NHL’s hottest teams closed out their schedules before the Olympic break Saturday afternoon.

There wasn’t a lot of pretty plays between the Flyers and Calgary Flames, who came in red-hot having won six of their last seven games.

Through a bunch of missed passes and sloppy play, the Flyers edged the Flames 2-1.

Ray Emery squandered the Flames with 32 saves. It was the goalie’s first home start since Nov. 21.

Emery came up big when the Flyers needed him, which was pretty often in the second period. That’s when the Flames had 11 shots to the Flyers’ four.

Even though it was the Flyers’ worst period, it was the only one in which they scored.

Brayden Schenn had a ton of chances on the day and potted his 15th goal of the season at 8:04 of the second period when he took a feed from Wayne Simmonds and put it up high on Calgary goalie Reto Berra.

Andrej Meszaros, who was in the lineup after missing last game as a healthy scratch, set up the play. Coach Craig Berube wanted to get the defenseman some NHL action before representing Slovakia next week in Sochi.

Other than the goal, there wasn’t much excitement in the game. Few pretty plays on either side and lots of missed passes highlighted the first period and Schenn’s tally was the only offense in the second stanza despite a power play for each team.

In the third, the Flyers added to the lead at 4:04.

Claude Giroux picked up a loose puck and shot from the right circle. It fluttered through the screen of Scott Hartnell and past Berra. The goal was initially given to Giroux, but after the game it was changed to Hartnell's 15th tally on the season.

It seemed to wake the Flyers up and have them play cleaner hockey.

They did so without defenseman Nick Grossmann, who left the game with 5:54 left in the second period. He did not return to the bench for the third period. It wasn’t immediately known what his injury was.

Emery made his best save of the game with time waning in the third period. About four minutes were left when he pokechecked the puck off the stick of Lee Stempniak.
