Flyers 6, Canadiens 4

MONTREAL — Scott Upshall scored with 3:04 remaining in the third period and the Philadelphia Flyers advanced to the Eastern Conference final. Upshall deflected Jeff Carter’s shot past Carey Price to give Philadelphia its second and final lead of the game as the Flyers won the conference semifinal in five games. R.J. Umberger had two goals and an assist and Martin Biron stopped 31 shots for the Flyers, whose last appearance in the East final was in 2004 when they lost to Tampa Bay. Mike Richards and Scott Hartnell scored as Philadelphia got three second-period goals to take a 4-3 lead. Mike Knuble scored into an empty net with 50 seconds left. Andrei Kostitsyn scored at 2:13 of the third to draw Montreal even at 4. Kostitsyn took Tomas Plekanec’s drop pass and used Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen as a screen to put a wrist shot past Biron. Price returned to the Montreal net after he was replaced in Game 4 by Jaroslav Halak.
