The Philadelphia Flyers started this game out quite well. They outshot the Toronto Maple Leafs 11-1 early, and took the lead on a pretty power play pass from Evgeny Medvedev. The goal seemed to wake up the Leafs, who tied the game only two minutes later with a rare goal from Roman Polak.
The Leafs then had all the momentum, coming all the way back in the shots on goal count.
The second period was more of the same, as the Leafs out-skated the Flyers all over the ice. After the Flyers successfully challenged one potential Leafs goal, former Flyer Joffrey Lupul scored one that counted to give the Leafs a 2-1 lead.
The Flyers had trouble revving up a sputtering offense in the third period, but with seven minutes left Shayne Gostisbehere did it all by himself with a tremendous unassisted goal.
It looked like yet another Flyers game would go to overtime, when the Leafs won a faceoff and Matt Hunwick's one-timer from the point found shockingly found it's way into the net. With only seven seconds remaining, it was too late for the Flyers to answer, who fell by a score of 3-2.
