The Swede was beaten by Carlo Finucci’s winner as the Flyers took the points with a 4-3 overtime victory.
It was a tough game to lose – I think we had a lot of the puck and a lot of shots, but we didn’t score in the second period,” said Zajkowski.
“I was trying to do my best in that period as I didn’t have much to do and was just watching the guys, trying to help out.
“It’s pretty tough, especially in the beginning of the season and I really tried to keep my focus in helping the team when the chances were coming, but I was disappointed we lost the game.”
Zajkowski admitted there were times when his concentration levels were tested after enduring long spells of not doing a lot earlier in the game, but he enjoyed the new three-on-three overtime format despite being on the losing side.
“There were a lot of chances in the three-on-three powerplay as the play went back and forward so it was good for the fans,” he added.
“I don’t know if it’s good for goalies, but it’s a lot of fun when there’s breakaways and stuff.”
