Thomas Greiss stopped 47 shots for the Islanders. They lead the series 3-2 and can wrap it up with a win in Game 6 in New York on Sunday.
Roberto Luongo made 40 saves for Florida, which missed a penalty shot in the first overtime and was whistled for two penalties in the second overtime. The game ended at 12:16 a.m.

The Islanders' second overtime power play came when Derek Mackenzie was called for slashing at 14:31, and that would be the break New York finally needed. Quine's blast from the right side beat Luongo, and the Islanders swarmed the ice in celebration.
Frans Nielsen scored in the first period for the Islanders, and Aleksander Barkov tied it early in the third for the Panthers. The Islanders' Calvin De Haan was called for closing his hand on the puck in the crease 7:19 into overtime, giving Barkov a chance to win it on a penalty shot - just the third in NHL playoff history. But his backhander was easily handled by Greiss
It was the seventh consecutive playoff overtime loss for Florida, a streak beginning with the final game of the 1996 Stanley Cup final against Colorado.
FLYERS 2, CAPITALS 0
WASHINGTON (AP) - Michal Neuvirth made a playoff career-high 44 saves and Philadelphia beat Washington Capitals in Game 5 to stay alive in the first-round series.
Neuvirth was dominant, carrying the team on his shoulders and blunting Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals' every charge to cut the series deficit to 3-2 and send it back to Philadelphia for Game 6 on Sunday.
Ryan White scored the lone goal for the Flyers against Braden Holtby, with the puck deflecting in off Washington defenseman Taylor Chorney and past the goalie.
Chris VandeVelde added an empty-netter.
Holtby was barely tested in making 10 saves, while Neuvirth set a franchise records for saves in a playoff shutout and saves in a regulation playoff game. It's the first time a team won a Stanley Cup playoff game with 11 shots since the Capitals beat Ottawa in 1998, and that total is the fewest shots for the Flyers history in the regular season and playoffs.
The pressure is now on the Presidents' Trophy-winning Capitals, who led the series 3-0 before Neuvirth replaced Steve Mason in goal for Philadelphia. Washington lost back-to-back games in regulation for the first time all season.
