Ivan Provorov was the hero for Philadelphia Flyers with the game winner in the second period of overtime as the Flyers completed a 5-4 win in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Second Round series in Toronto.

Tampa Bay Lightning advanced to the Eastern Conference Final and will play either the New York Islanders or Philadelphia Flyers.

Lightning defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2 in double overtime in Game 5 on Monday, to book their place in the Conference Final for the second time in three seasons.

Victor Hedman scored at 14:10 of the second period of overtime to ensure victory. Bruins have now lost four straight games after winning 3-2 in Game 1.


Michael Hutchinson made 31 saves in his first Stanley Cup play off start as the Colorado Avalanche avoided elimination with a 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars in Game 5 of the Western Conference second round in Edmonton on Monday.
