Philadelphia has given up 10 power-play goals, killing 85.9% of opponent chances.

Provorov, of Russian Federation, scored his sixth goal of the season while Oskar Lindblom, Kevin Hayes and Travis Konecny also scored goals in front of the crowd of 21,200 at the Bell Centre arena in Quebec.

The Montreal Canadiens welcome the New Jersey Devils to town on Saturday after losing their last game to the New Jersey Devils by the score of 6-4.

But this franchise should be much more focused on the present and the future, including Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Bell Centre (3 p.m., SN, RDS, TSN 690 Radio) followed by Sunday's game in Boston against the Bruins (7 p.m., SN, RDS, TSN 690 Radio).

Montreal backup goalie Keith Kinkaid made 25 saves in a rare start.

The Canadiens gave up 20 goals in their previous three games, forcing Claude Julien to tinker with his defensive pairings.

Defenceman Ivan Provorov was the overtime hero, beating Kinkaid 31 seconds into the extra frame with a nifty dangle around Max Domi in the offensive zone. The young Russian has collected points in three straight contests to post only his fourth point streak of three-plus games in 2019.

"Faultless" Van Dijk is worth Ballon d & # 39; s more than Messi
Cruyff's prediction could come true on December 2, if Lionel Messi beats Virgil van Dijk to the award. I love the player. "I'm definitely a Messi fan, in the gang", Gerrard said.

The Caps' first-period performance was, in a word, awful. The 21-year-old netminder settled in after allowing an early goal, making some critical saves in the first and second periods that helped lead Philly to their offensive onslaught in the third.

Six-foot-three defenceman Gustav Olofsson, recalled from the AHL's Laval Rocket, made his Canadiens debut playing alongside rookie Cale Fleury.

The teams upped the scoring pace in the second, trading three goals in a 1:12 span. Mike Reilly and Brett Kulak were healthy scratches.

The two teams again exchanged quick goals to begin the third period. He wasn't bad but, at the same time, he didn't make any game-saving stops and he gave up four goals for the fifth time in as many starts.

The Canadiens haven't won a game in more than two weeks.

"We are pretty upset at the moment with the result", said Tatar. "The matter is we've got to win our next hockey game and that's all we're really focused on".

Notes: Defenceman Victor Mete (lower-body injury) left the game and did not return.
