Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) – Brayden Schenn’s controversial goal
with 2:24 remaining in overtime lifted Philadelphia over Los Angeles by a 3-2
count on Tuesday.
Schenn skated in all alone from the hosts’ side of center ice in the neutral
zone and shot low, but while Kings netminder Jonathan Quick smothered the shot
with his pads, the puck was loose for a second. Schenn made a hard stop in the
crease and the force of covering the rebound pushed Quick into the net with
the puck presumably over the goal line.
The original call did not indicate a goal, but upon a conference of all four
officials plus a brief review, the on-ice decision was overruled, giving the
hosts their third straight victory.
Michael Raffl and Chris VandeVelde also lit the lamp while Jakub Voracek added
a pair of assists for the Flyers, who received 38 saves from Ray Emery.
Tyler Toffoli and Mike Richards scored for the Kings, with Jonathan Quick
making 40 saves in the setback.
