Ivan Provorov lifts Flyers to 4-3 overtime win in Montreal to complete magical November


MONTREAL -- As defenseman Ivan Provorv took the puck in his own zone and headed up ice in overtime, he could hear his teammates shouting from the bench.


Brian Elliott made 39 saves for the Flyers, who handed the Canadiens their seventh straight defeat.


They looked fatigued in the second half of the game, which turned into a shooting gallery in front of Elliott.


A beautifully executed three-on-two ended with Konecny whipping a left-circle wrist shot past Kinkaid to give the Flyers their first lead, at 3-2, with 18 minutes, 26 seconds left in the third period.


The Flyers’ penalty kill had been 19-for-20 in their previous six-plus games before Tatar struck from the left circle to make it 3-3.


Justin Braun’s point drive was deflected by Oskar Lindblom (team-high 11th goal) past Kincaid to knot the score at 1-1 with 12:13 left in the second.
