Philly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in Game 6 before New York scored three straight goals to go up by one. After trailing 4-3 in the third, Scott Laughton, who played OT hero in Game 5, scored on a breakaway to tie things up at 4-4 midway through the final frame. After a scoreless overtime period, Ivan Provorov scored in double OT to send this series to a Game 7 on Saturday night.

Semyon Varlamov has started 14 of 15 playoff games for the Islanders, but suffered back-to-back losses for the first time this postseason after picking up the “L” in Game 6. The 32-year-old also tied his playoff career high by allowing five goals on 31 shots in the loss.

“Both of them are really good options for me in goal,” Islanders head coach Barry Trotz said of his two goalies. “We’re sort of blessed with two pretty good goaltenders. So as I say, any decision that we decide on I think we have both trust with our players and our goaltenders in that situation.”

After warming up prior to Games 4 and 5, Oskar Lindblom returned to the lineup for Philly in Game 6. It was his first game since December, when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma.

This is the fifth playoff series all-time between the Flyers and Islanders (’75, ’80, ’85, ’87). Two of those series went to seven games with both of those cases seeing a team overcome at least a two-game series deficit but eventually falling short of completing the comeback

The winner will play the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final.
