Way back it was quite common to go with five Forwards and one D-man on regular Power Plays... I'd say in either case the extra Forward is normally one that is a Two-Way player with excellent Defensive ability.

... I agree with the thinking that an all out effort to sew it up in OT... Not only because the Flyers flat-out suck in ShootOuts, but also because of ROW points that determine the firs seeding tiebreaker... a Win in OT is better than a Win through SO.
Yeah, it was not the first time. And it also makes a lot of sense, especially for us, to go with three forwards and one d in ot. Not only because of our terrible shoot out record, but also because of our forward depth.
