Flyers Finally Win

Scott Laughton scored twice and Brian Elliott made 43 saves as the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a 10-game losing skid last night with a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames.

Calgary held a wide edge in play, outshooting the visitors 45-21, but the opportunistic Flyers scored three times in a 1:11 span in the second period to break open a 1-1 game.

Valtteri Filppula, Michael Raffl and Wayne Simmonds also scored for Philadelphia (9-11-7), while Jakub Voracek tacked on three assists.  The Flyers have points in six of their last 11 games as five of the losses during their skid came in overtime.

Troy Brouwer, with his first of the season, and Sean Monahan scored for Calgary (14-12-1).

The Flames lost three of four on their homestand and now head out East for games on back-to-back nights in Toronto and Montreal starting tomorrow.

Mike Smith made 16 saves in defeat.
