Los Angeles Kings @ Philadelphia Flyers Game #7
When Joyal (2) scored at 19:42 of the first period to cancel out Dornhoefer's (3) effort five minutes earlier the Kings faithful must have hoped that they had the momentum heading into the break. But a poor offensive effort and an in-form Dornhoefer kept LA on the back foot throughout.
Dornhoefer (5) completed his hat-trick with goals at 1:25 and 10:37. The Flyers had their own penalty troubles but neither side was able to take chances with a numerical advantage out on the ice, even when the Kings had a five-on-three during the second period. Five-on-five belonged to the hosts with JC Watson (3) and Rochefort (4) making it a four-goal middle frame and Sutherland (4) scoring with a fine solo effort to make it 7-0 in the third.
