Flyers Win it in OT to See Another Day

Islanders – Flyers Game 5

Islanders lead 3-1

Lines:

Islanders:

Flyers:

First Period:

Though there was no scoring in the first, the Flyers came out like a team needing a win to stay alive. They outshot the Islanders 11-4, despite being shorthanded twice, compared to the Islanders once. They weren’t able to get one past Varlamov though, and the score stayed 0-0

Second Period:

The second started differently though, with Josh Bailey scoring a PPG goal early in the period to give the Islanders a 1-0 lead.

The much maligned captain of the Flyers, Claude Giroux, answered back though, tying the game at 1.

James Van Riemsdyk added another for the Flyers before the period ended.

Third Period:

Matt Niskanen scored to open up the game for the Flyers, as they took a 3-1 lead.

The Islanders came roaring back though, first with a goal from Brock Nelson.

Then another from Derick Brassard to tie the game at 3.

Overtime:

The Flyers kept their Stanley Cup dreams alive when Scott Laughton scored to end the game.

The Islanders still maintain a 3-2 series lead and look to make their first conference final trip since 1993 this Thursday.

Thanks for reading.
