Flyers’ Ivan Provorov forces Game Seven with double overtime goal
A broken stick ended up being the difference.
Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov scored in double overtime to force a Game Seven against the New York Islanders after Scott Mayfield broke his stick on the opposite end of the ice. Kevin Hayes ragged the puck into the offensive zone before finding Provorov wide open at the point with a centering pass. The Russian fired the puck past a screened Semyon Varlamov for the game-winner.
