NHL Game Summary - Philadelphia at Los Angeles



(Saturday, February 1st)

Final Score: Philadelphia 2, Los Angeles 0

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Steve Mason recorded his second shutout in his last three games as the Philadelphia Flyers blanked the Los Angeles Kings, 2-0, at Staples Center.

Wayne Simmonds tallied his 100th career goal and added an assist against his former team, while Claude Giroux also had a multi-point night after lighting the lamp on a third-period power play.

"L.A. is a big team, they like to grind it out. They got pucks deep. They have big bodies and they play a physical game," said Simmonds. "I think we matched them hit for hit today. I think the last few games have been a test for the character in our dressing room. I think we have done a good job."

Mason turned aside 35 shots in his third shutout of the season as the Flyers have won two of their last three.

Jonathan Quick allowed both goals on 13 shots in the Kings' third straight defeat.

"You have to score to win, you can't win with nothing. You can't get frustrated; you can't allow guys who are playing well to get frustrated, you have to see if they can work their way out of it," said Los Angeles head coach Darryl Sutter.

Giroux sent a cross-ice pass to Vincent Lecavalier at the right circle. Lecavalier sent the puck over to Simmonds, who was present at the side of the net to open the scoring 7:48 into the second.

The Kings had a chance to get within one when Justin Williams emerged from behind the net and fired a shot, but his offering rang off the far post with under four to go in the third.

Giroux tallied a power-play goal with 1:58 remaining. Mark Streit kept the puck in the zone and worked it around the boards. Simmonds raced to the corner and laced a pass back to Scott Hartnell. Giroux received the puck on the other side of crease and wristed a shot to beat a sprawled-out Quick.

The Kings pulled Quick and Erik Gustafsson took a slashing penalty with 18 seconds to go, but the Kings could not convert with the extra attacker.
