Nolan Patrick sealed the deal for Philly.

He gave them a 3-1 lead 7:05 into the third period. Then, after Max Domi made it 3-1 31 seconds later, Patrick scored off a dominant shift to restore a there-goal lead for the visitors.

After Brett Kulak scored with four minutes left, Michael Raffl got an empty-netter.

Philadelphia scored twice in 35 seconds to take the lead, late in the second period. The scorers were Travis Konecny, burying a rebound past Antti Niemi, and James Van Riemsdyk, batting one in from the slot.

Shots were 35-24 for the losing team.
