- The Flyers got on the board first with Mark Streit's seventh goal of the season thanks in large part to a beautiful screen by Wayne Simmonds, who was originally awarded the goal but asked them to review it.
- The goal gives the Flyers a power play goal in seven straight games.
- The Sharks would respond three minutes later with a power play goal of their own when Matt Nieto re-directed Tommy Wingels' pass to tie the game.
- The goal snapped an 0-for-16 power play stretch the Sharks had entering the games.
- Almost exactly five minutes later, Nieto received a beautiful pass from Brent Burns in front of the net and Nieto showed off some nice hands to freeze Steve Mason then beat him to make it 2-1 San Jose.
- The Flyers started the third period on fire with Matt Read scoring on a wrist shot on a 2-on-2 rush to tie the game just 1:11 into the period.
- Just 1:18 later, Erik Gustafsson's shot from the point was stopped but Michael Raffl was in the slot able to put home the rebound to put the Flyers up 3-2.
- And 1:27 after Raffl's goal, Claude Giroux picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone and carried in and ripped a wrist shot by Antti Niemi to give the Flyers a 4-2 lead.
- After being one of the best players on the ice through two periods, Niemi was pulled just 3:56 into the third period after allowing three goals on the Flyers' first three shots of the period.
- With 2:12 remaining in the game, Giroux forced a Martin Havlat turnover then found Jake Voracek in the slot who beat Alex Stalock to make it 5-2.
- The Flyers set a new franchise-record with their 10th win when trailing in the third period, their previous record of nine was set in 1996-97.
- It was the Flyers first win over the Sharks since December 21st, 2000 and their first win in San Jose since November 5th, 1999.
- The Flyers are the first team in the NHL to play three straight games in California and win two in regulation.
- The loss drops the Sharks to 26-2-2 when leading after two periods.
- Flyers outshot the Sharks 28-22, including holding the Sharks to five shots in the second period.
