(Newser) – Danny Briere saved the game for the Flyers in regulation and Mike Knuble got them a win away from the second round in a thrilling double-overtime finish. Knuble poked in his second goal of the series 6:40 into the second OT to give Philadelphia a 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals on tonight and a 3-1 series lead.

Jeff Carter scored twice for the Flyers, who can finish off the Caps in Game 5 on Saturday in Washington. The Caps have dropped three straight in the series and it could be the end for them if leading scorer Alex Ovechkin can't start finding the back of the net. Ovechkin, who scored 65 goals this season, had only one assist in Game 4.
