PHILADELPHIA -- Lately, the Flyers' new trend is that it'll take a while for their offense to get going. They may not score right away, but they'll find the net either late in the second period or any point in the third.
As the third stanza of their Saturday matinee matchup with Los Angeles progressed, they still weren't able to find twine. They weren't able to generate a lot of quality chances on Peter Budaj, though luckily, they weren't allowing goals either.
Just 2:35 into the overtime period, though, their luck ran out. Jeff Carter nailed the game-winning goal on a one-timer from Anze Kopitar along the goal line to eke out a 1-0 victory. Michal Neuvirth, who had made a number of big saves to get the Flyers a point, wasn't able to do anything about it.
