Laughton Scores In OT To Keep The Flyers Alive In Game 5

Scott Laughton

What an absolute banger of a game. All elimination games have maximum intensity involved. This game met that standard. The Flyers had a 3-1 lead with under five minutes to go and the Islanders stormed right on in to tie the game at three. It was in overtime that Scott Laughton tipped home an Ivan Provorov shot to send this series to a game six. Claude Giroux, James van Riemsdyk, and Matt Niskanen scored for Philadelphia as well. Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson, and Derick Brassard scored for the Islanders.

What a beautiful tip from Laughton. Park yourself in front of the net and get a stick on it and something good will come from it. Textbook. Game six will be Thursday, September 3rd, at a time TBD. Is this series going to end or be pushed to a game seven? We will see.
