- Steve Downie was whistled for holding with 3:44 left in the game after the Flyers failed to clear the puck. The Islanders went on the power play and more tic-tac-toe saw the puck end up on Kyle Okposo's skate and he redirected it into the net to tie the game 3-3 with 2:58 remaining.
- Regulation would end tied 3-3 and the two teams headed to overtime.
- After a scoreless overtime that saw the Flyers get a number of opportunities to score, it went to shootout. Tied 2-2 through three shooters, Okposo scored and Nilsson stopped Sean Couturier for an Islander victory.
