Despite a slow start from both teams, Philadelphia was able to strike first as Wayne Simmonds tipped a shot home after Columbus lost a defensive zone faceoff.
It looked like Columbus would fail and eliminate themselves in all but math from playoff contention. But, when all looked lost, Cam Atkinson equalized on a gorgeous backhand with minutes to go.
Despite getting a point, it wouldnt matter as Jack Johnson, Matt Calvert, and Artemi Panarin combined to allow Sean Couturier a game winning goal on a 2 on 1 that was defended by mites.
Final: them 2 us 1
