Instant Analysis

 

It was a better period in terms of shot suppression and penalty killing for the Flyers, but offensively, the Flyers are in trouble.

The Kings have the Flyers right where they want them. Down 2-0, space is very limited, and after failing to get anything going on the early power play in the second, chances were few and far between. It will take a stellar third for the Flyers to rally back from this one and avoid the 0-3-0 road trip.
