FLYERS GAIN A POINT, LOSE THE FIGHT AND 2ND STRAIGHT!

By Jenny Masters

Kevin Fiala scored 1:09 into overtime to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-3 victory over the Flyers.

James van Riemsdyk, Wade Allison and Rasmus Ristolainen scored for the Flyers.

Los Angeles dominated the third period but couldn’t find the tiebreaking goal until the extra session. Fiala took the puck the length of the ice and elected to shoot on a 2-on-1, firing a wrist shot under the left arm of goalie Carter Hart for his 17th goal and team-leading 50th point.

Pheonix Copley made 28 saves for the Kings. Hart stopped 34 shots.

Flyers coach John Tortorella usually is feisty after a loss, but he wasn’t after this one. He was concerned after the Kings came out blazing on the first few shifts but felt like the Flyers responded to the challenge.

“We stuck right there with them,” he said.

“We got our legs going and played a really good hockey game.”
