The Philadelphia Flyers have played great hockey in the last 48 hours. Flyers were looking to get some revenge from a week ago and from last night’s game-winning big over the Anaheim Ducks and carrying that momentum, with all those intangible roles, into one.
The Los Angeles Kings want to bounce back in the win column after losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Both teams were playing exceptionally well on the defense side of the puck. Even the Flyers are playing back-to-back games. You would think that fatigue would be a huge X-factor for the Flyers in this game. However, that wasn’t the case.
Owen Tippet Steam Rolling
Owen Tippet has been steamrolling for the Flyers in the last 48 hours. He is putting up three goals in back-to-back games. Both teams were playing a soiled defensive game in the first period. Late in the first, Sean Walker would spot Owen Tippet off to the races. Owen Tippet would then make a great goal, getting the Flyers on the scoreboard early and setting the tone. Owen Tippet is doing a sensational job of outworking the opposition. He’s stepped up when the Flyers needed him most. Owen Tippet is doing a great job of putting himself in the proper position to score goals. Tippet is hustling with the puck and, most importantly, locating the back of the net.
Morgan Frost is making a statement in Los Angeles and showing the Flyers front office that he came ready to play. Has he put up a pair of goals on the night? His first goal was abruptly sick. In the second period, Nick Seeler passes to Morgan Frost. Morgan Frost took the puck in for a wrap-around goal. He was catching the Kings goaltender Cam Talbot off guard. His second goal was with a clogging vision in front of Cam Talbot, in which Nick Seeler would shoot the puck from almost the blue line and Morgan Frost with a re-direct to score the goal.
Cal Petersen brought his A-game against his former team. He stopped 35 out of 37 goals. Flyers are back to being a 500 team. Let’s see what they can carry red-hot momentum down to Raleigh, North Carolina, to face and conquer the Hurricanes.
