- The Flyers got on the board first period with some gorgeous passing. Claude Giroux found Vinny Lecavalier on a beautiful cross-ice pass then Lecavalier found a wide-open Wayne Simmonds next to the net and he deposited it in the open net to put the Flyers up 1-0 near the midpoint of the second period.
- The goal was Simmonds' 100th in the NHL and he got it against his former team.
- With 2:53 remaining in the third period, Matt Greene was called for interference on Jakub Voracek to put the Flyers on the power play. After Mark Streit kept the puck in at the blue line, Wayne Simmonds chipped the puck in the corner and it ended up on Scott Hartnell's stick. Hartnell fed Claude Giroux on a cross-ice pass and Giroux beat Jonathan Quick to put the Flyers up 2-0.
- The Flyers had a season-low nine shots through two periods and tied a franchise-record for fewest shots with 13 overall - originally set against the Capitals in 1990.
- The Kings outshot the Flyers 35-13, including 13-4 in the third period.
- Jake Voracek led the Flyers with four shots on goal.
- It was Steve Mason's second shutout this week and third this year.
- The giveaway margin was definitely won by the Flyers with the Kings give the puck away 18 times to just five times for the Flyers.
- The win improves the Flyers to 17-2-4 when leading through two periods and 7-1-1 all-time at the Staples Center.
- The loss drops the Kings to 1-7-1 over their last nine games.
