Attempting to finish his check on Travis Sanheim, Jesperi Kotkaniemi caught the Flyers defenceman in the numbers, sending him into the boards. The referee reviewed it, and decided it was worth a major penalty, and a game misconduct.

Philadelphia scored two goals on the five-minute power play, turning an 0-1 deficit into a 2-1 lead.
