  • Philadelphia Contributions
    J. Voracek – stops Montreal’s clearing attempt along the boards and knocks the puck down to Giroux by the right faceoff circle
    C. Giroux – sees Raffl going to the slot in a 2-on-1 situation and makes a pass over Beaulieu’s stick to Raffl
    M. Raffl – goes in alone on Price, pulls the puck to his backhand, and flicks it past Price’s glove into the net
  • Montreal Faults
    T. Gilbert – can’t play a puck along the boards in the defensive zone, so it goes to Voracek for a turnover

    W. Simmonds – skates the puck to the top of the left faceoff dot and takes a wrist shot that beats Price’s glove
    V. Lecavalier – skates up ice on the right side with Simmonds, making the rush a partial 2-on-1, which keeps Tinordi playing the pass
  • Montreal Faults
    R. Bourque – loses his coverage of Simmonds as they exit the Flyers zone, forcing Tinordi to play Simmonds in a 2-on-1 situation instead of challenging him
