After a huge overtime win in San Jose going against the Sharks, the Flyers were out in Los Angeles battling the Kings. The game didn’t start well.
The Flyers made some bad penalties in the early going. They were down to a two-man advantage. That’s when Drew Doughty set up Adrian Kempa for a goal. That was Adrian Kempa’s 14th goal of the season. However, the Flyers would answer back when Scott Laughton was found wide open and cashed it in for a goal.
Phillip Danault would then strip Tony DeAngelo of the puck, taking it the other way and throwing some sauce on that breakaway goal. Owen Tippett was your player of the game. Tippet putting his body on the line so he can stop the shots in the defensive zone. He made a really nice sharp deke around a defender for a goal to tie the game.
“He just needs to be consistent.Flyers Head Coach John Tortorellla in his Post Game Interview talking about Owen Tippet
Noah Cates would rush up the offensive zone. Cates waited for Patrick Brown to set up the screen, and then he would unleash a wrist rocket near the blue line to take the lead of the game on a short-handed goal. The Flyers and Las Vegas Golden Knights lead the NHL in short-handed goals. Both franchises are at 7 goals. To put the nail in the coffin, Travis Konecny with an open neter goal. That is Konecny’s 18th goal of the year. That gives the Flyers the currently uncommon two-game win streak. The Flyers scrap out a win battling the Kings.
