“It’s definitely frustrating,” Frost said. “We have to learn how to finish the game. It’s obviously huge. We thought we played a very strong game and then give it up at the end. So, it’s tough.”

Philadelphia coach John Tortorella said, “The frustrating part for me is the second goal. It’s a cover that we’ve done over and over and we just don’t do it right. It cost us the second goal.”

Frost gave the Flyers a 1–0 lead at 5:27 of the first period when his wrist shot on a rush ricocheted off Kuemper’s block, over the goaltender and into the net.

“It was kind of a mess out there on the first PK,” Sandstrom said. “I was a little too aggressive, so I just slipped out from under my pillow. It’s a tough game, but I think it pulled me into the game and it got better and better.”

The Browns gave Philadelphia a 2-1 lead at 14:33 of the second period when Ivan ProvorovA backhand spinning shot from the bottom right circle deflected off Brown’s skate.
