Scott Laughton Drops the Gloves for Flyers' 1st Fight of 2018-19 Season

That seemed like a pretty good time for the Flyers' first fight of the 2018-19 season.

Directly off the faceoff after the Sabres took a 4-0 lead with eight seconds left in the first period Wednesday, Scott Laughton dropped the gloves with Johan Larsson, which you can watch in the video above.

Good for Laughton, who has been one of the Flyers' best and most consistent players this season, showing effort every night. He answered the bell here in an attempt to provide some kind of energy to a lifeless Flyers team, which had an absolutely disastrous opening stanza.

Alex Lyon, making his season debut, fell behind 3-0 just 8:55 into the action.

This is a mini gut check for the Flyers, who entered the game losers of three straight. Wednesday kicked off a stretch of three games in four days against teams with a combined record of 21-2-1 in their last 24 games.

Let's see if Laughton's scrap wakes up the Flyers.
