PHILADELPHIA (AP) Anthony Cirelli saved the day for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After becoming the first team in NHL history to cough up a four-goal lead in the final 10 minutes of a game, Tampa Bay escaped with the win when Cirelli scored 1:47 into overtime to lift the Lightning to a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Cirelli outmuscled Wayne Simmonds to gain position in front of the net and beat Calvin Pickard with a top-shelf wrist shot. It was his fourth goal of the season.
