POSTGAME 5: Comeback Special

Flyers mount 3-2 overtime win vs. Toronto on Lindros retirement night

by PhiladelphiaFlyers.com @NHLFlyers / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED

On a historic and special night in which the team welcomed Eric Lindros, the sixth player to have his jersey retired, the Flyers provided a comeback victory at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night.

Sean Couturier provided the heroics and scored 18 seconds into overtime to complete a come-from-behind win for the Flyers, 3-2 over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs. 

Toronto took the lead with two goals in rapid succession in the second period, one from Connor Brown and one from Frederik Gauthier. Nolan Patrick got the Flyers on the board 1:33 into the third period, which was quickly followed by a shorthanded goal by Wayne Simmonds. 

Couturier then buried a 2-on-1 pass from Travis Konecny to give the Flyers the extra point. Michal Neuvirth had several highlight-reel saves among his 29 stops, while Frederik Andersen stopped 34 in the loss. Video: TOR@PHI: Couturier slots home game-winner in OT
