The Flyers were last humiliated by the Rangers 0: 9 and 3: 8, and they started accordingly motivated. 12-2 shots on goal were in the statistics halfway through the first period, but the Philadelphia fright struck again in the first power play. Mika Zibanejad, who had scored three goals and three assists in each of the two previous encounters with Philadelphia and thus set a record, scored after a great pass from Ryan Strome to lead the guests (11th).
Nolan Patrick also managed to equalize to 1: 1 (33rd) in the power play, before Morin secured the first win after four defeats in the finish.
The Buffalo Sabers lost 3-2 to the Boston Bruins and thus expanded the NHL negative record. It was the 17th consecutive defeat for the Sabers, who are in the longest winless series since the introduction of the penalty shootout in the 2005/06 season.
