Gostisbehere netted his third goal in an extra session this season, converting at 1:42 to lift Philadelphia past Jeff Skinner and the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Jakub Voracek had a goal and two assists, and Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier also scored for Philadelphia, which won its seventh in 11 games while improving to 7-6 in overtime.

Skinner had his second hat trick in three games and the third of his career for the Hurricanes.

Gostisbehere scored the winner with a forehand shot from the left side of the net after receiving a backhand pass from Voracek.

Neuvirth, Philadelphia's backup, made his 14th start and third straight. He finished with 29 saves while improving to 8-4-2.
