Gerard Gallant’s boys played a bit better in the first period. They took two more shots on target, but both teams scored because the Flyers had weakened defence with only 18 defensive actions. In the sixth minute, Mika Zibanejad scored a goal in powerplay. Then Oskar Lindblom leveled the score with Travis Konecny and Scott Laughton’s help.
In the second period, we did not see a goal in spite of the fact that the Ranger made 12 shots on target with seven by their rivals. The Flyers completed 18 defensive actions.
The Philadelphia Flyers dominated in the third period but lost it. They made 15 shots on target but the New York Rangers completed 24 defensive actions which was the reason why the Flyers scored only one goal.

Filip Chytil and Chris Kreider scored their goals in the 51st and 54th minutes, respectively.
