Umberger's two goals propel comeback win by Flyers

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- R.J. Umberger scored the tying and go-ahead goals 2½ minutes apart, capping a three-goal rally in the third period and lifting the Philadelphia Flyers to a stunning 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

Alexander Frolov gave the Kings a 3-1 lead with 10:36 to play, scoring his second of the game at the end of a 2-on-1 break with Craig Conroy. But the Flyers capitalized on two giveaways in the Kings' end to pull even.

Mike Knuble knocked the puck off defenseman Lubomir Visnovski's stick and it bounced right to Simon Gagne, who beat Dan Cloutier from close range with 6:47 remaining. Just 40 seconds later, Umberger stole the puck from Dustin Brown at the top of the left circle, whirled around and beat Cloutier as Flyers forward Mike Richards provided a screen.

The Flyers completed their improbable comeback when Richards' centering pass caromed off the left skate of Kings defenseman Mattias Norstrom and right to Umberger, who swept his sixth goal past Cloutier with 3:37 left.
