Keith Yandle blasted a shot from the point that snuck through traffic and beat Steve Mason knotting the game up two apiece with just 12 seconds left in the third period forcing overtime.
After the three on three didn't obtain a victor, a shootout was necessary. In the shootout, Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan both scored for the Rangers while Sam Gagner and Claude Giroux failed to do so.
Philadelphia led for much of the hockey game this afternoon thanks to a dominating second period that saw the Flyers outshoot the Rangers 20-7. One of those shots came from Shayne Gostisbehere on the PowerPlay. His wrister from the point snuck through Henrik Lundqvist's pads giving the Flyers a 1-0 lead at 7:16 mark of the second. The goal extended Ghost's point streak to seven games where he has 10 points during that stretch.
Chris Kreider tied the game up early in the third on a tip in goal; however, Ryan White responded just 2:30 minutes later from the circle on a feed from Gostisbehere and the lead was restored.
That lead held until 12 seconds to go, when Michael Raffl failed to get close enough to Yandle to block the shot. As a result, the shot made it through cleanly and the Flyers walk away with just one point in the standings.
• Wayne Simmonds was given a five minute match penalty and game misconduct for intent to injure after he threw a punch at Ryan McDonagh. Prior to the punch, McDonagh viciously cross checked Simmonds to the head. McDonagh was given a double minor for his offense; however, after taking the punch to the face, he left the game and did not return. The play will be up for review by the league for a potential suspension for Simmonds.
• Jake Voracek picked up an assist on Gostisbehere's goal extending his point streak to six games.
• Claude Giroux also picked up an assist on Gostisbehere's goal now giving him a four game streak.

• Gostisbehere played a career high 23:01 minutes today. It was also his sixth multipoint game of the season.
