PHILADELPHIA, March 12 (UPI) -- Ron Hainsey tipped in a goal 1:17 into overtime Saturday, capping a late rally that sent the Atlanta Thrashers to a 5-4 victory over Philadelphia.

The game-winner came when Evander Kane carried the puck down the left side and threaded an accurate pass to Hainsey, who tipped a shot past Sergei Bobrovsky.

Atlanta entered the third period trailing 3-0 but outscored Philadelphia 4-1 down the stretch to force an overtime and then take its third win in four games.

Kane and Andrew Ladd each collected a goal and an assist, and Zach Bogosian and Tobias Enstrom also scored in the final period for Atlanta.

Chris Mason got victory, stopping 11-of-12 shots after relieving starter Ondrej Pavelec, who had yielded three goals on 12 shots through two periods before being pulled.

Ville Leino scored a hat trick but it wasn't enough to prevent Philadelphia's fifth loss in seven games.

Bobrovsky ended up allowing five goals on 41 shots for the Flyers.
