Despite the fact the New York Islanders carried the play for much of the night, it was really hard to imagine the Philadelphia Flyers losing Game 6 of their second-round series. It was, after all, the return of Oskar Lindblom in his first game back since his cancer diagnosis in December.

And true to the script, the Flyers managed to gut out a 5-4 victory in double-overtime thanks to a goal from defenseman Ivan Provorov. Now, Lindblom gets a chance to play at least one more hockey game this season.
