Just as it was on Sunday, a nail-biting finish ensued as the Flyers were clinging to a one-goal lead. Ray Emery couldn't fend off the Canadiens forever and with 7:22 to play, Montreal tied the game.
From that point, it was Montreal's game to lose if they could find a way. The Flyers, who scored just 51 seconds into the game, had not mounted much of an attack in the final 40 minutes. It was only a matter of time.
The shame of the Flyers 2-1 overtime loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday is the nature in which it ended. Even a shootout loss would have been easier to take than the mass confusion on the ice as Montreal capitalized on a mistake and finished off the Flyers as they probably should have all along.
As with nearly every other game on this now seven-game points streak for the Flyers, they owe their goaltender for getting it to overtime.
