    Kevin Hayes, James van Riemsdyk, Michael Raffl and Scott Laughton also scored for Philadelphia, and Carter Hart made a career-high 49 saves.

Carter Hart made some huge saves for us and I was pretty glad to see Provys shot go in there.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 26 shots. Its an unfortunate play there at the end, but it happens, Mathew Barzals said. Now its a winner-take-all Game 7. Game 7 is Saturday, with the winner advancing to face Tampa Bay in the conference finals Philadelphia had a chance on a flurry in front of The Islanders net early in the second overtime, but Semyon Varlamov stopped the puck and Pelech dove at the loose puck to keep it out with his stick and glove. After Pelech lost the puck on a shot attempt when his stick broke, The Flyers pushed it up the ice and Provorov got a pass from Kevin Hayes and beat Semyon Varlamov. I saw their defenseman broke his stick, Haysie was carrying the puck in and I knew he was going to try to make a play, Provorov said. He threw the puck up front, I got it and their forward was sliding into the lane so I shot it opposite side and tired to go top corner and got it there. Carter Hart had 38 saves in regulation. Carter Hart made several nice stops in the first extra period, including a save on Jordan Eberles backhand midway through. Our shots were there, our chances were there for sure.
