Video: Simmonds’ 100th career NHL goal is a beauty

Feb 1, 2014, 9:51 PM EDT

Wayne Simmonds will probably always remember his 100th career National Hockey League goal, no matter how the puck went in the net.

But he’ll remember that the milestone goal was a beauty, finishing off a sweet passing play from Vincent Lecavalier and Claude Giroux on Saturday, as the Flyers defeated the struggling L.A. Kings. For Simmonds, it’s also his 18th goal of the season. He’s only 10 off his career best, which he achieved in 2011-12 with the Flyers.

“He never stops, no matter what,” Flyers’ head coach Craig Berube recently told USA Today. “In a game, he’s always the same and playing the same. He’s a very, very good player, good leadership.”

      He’s been a great contributor since day 1 in Philly. And he’s definitely been our best forward this season. It was well deserved to see the “A” on his jersey (in place of Kimmo) in his return to LA. And to net his 100th, the game winner, was all the more fitting.

      He’s the trade mark and poster of heart for the Flyers. They have a good goalie, their decent at center, now they need to strengthen their d. UFA Niskanen would be a great addition or RFA Subban.
