Wrap: Flyers Defeat Coyotes, 5-3

The Philadelphia Flyer battled back from 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 deficits to defeat the Arizona Coyotes, 5-3, at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday evening. The Flyers scored three unanswered goals in the third period. The Flyers (29-19-6) have won each of their first four games since the NHL All-Star break.

Scott Laughton scored the game-winning goal for the Flyers and also set up a Travis Konecny goal on a 2-on-1. Konecny had a three-point game (1g, 2a). Morgan Frost had one his best all-around games of the season, including a penalty shot goal, three power plays created for Philadelphia, several scoring chances, a couple of nice setups to linemates, three credited hits, and a credited takeaway in 20:09 of ice time.

Matt Dumba, Matias Maccelli and Alex Kerfoot scored for Arizona.Samuel Ersson made several timely saves, especially after the Flyers took a 4-3 lead, to earn the win in net for Philly. He finished with 20 saves on 23 shots. Karel Vejmelka took the loss. The Arizona netminder made 29 saves on 33 shots.

The Flyers went 0-for-8 on the power play. They generated their share of pressure and several opportunities near the net but could not pot a goal. However, Philly succeeded in building momentum. The Coyotes went 0-for-4 and were largely shut down by the Flyers' PK.
