Sports Talk with Brodes: Flyers Control the Entire Game, But Fall to Arizona!
The Philadelphia Flyers absolutely controlled this game against the Arizona Coyotes, but could not find the back of the net enough. Phil Kessel scored his first goal of the night a few minutes in on the powerplay. From there, it was mostly Flyers. They had a couple powerplay chances of their own in the second period and could not cash in. They came in waves in the third period as well, but with seven minutes to go, Arizona took a two-goal lead. Alain Vigneault pulled Brian Elliott early and Matt Niskanen scored to make it a one goal game, but after Kevin Hayes took a penalty, Phil Kessel scored his second of the night to end the game. Darcy Kuemper stood on his head!
