Carter turns 40 as Flyers stop Devils
Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne scored early in the third period to lift the Flyers past the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, last night in Philadelphia.
Carter scored his 40th goal and Gagne his 30th only 2:06 apart to hand Martin Brodeur only his third loss in 12 games since returning from biceps surgery.
The Flyers have won three straight behind goalie Martin Biron, and got a goal and an assist from Danny Briere.
Briere has bounced back into form since returning from the groin injuries that cost him most of this season. He has three goals and two assists during the winning streak, helping the Flyers keep their hold on fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Brendan Shanahan and Jamie Langenbrunner scored for New Jersey, which missed a chance to clinch a playoff spot.
Biron stopped 32 shots. He is 10-4 in his last 15 appearances, including a 27-save effort Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Hurricanes 3, Panthers 2 - Ray Whitney scored 1:37 into overtime to lead surging Carolina past host Florida.
Tuomo Ruutu and Patrick Eaves also scored for Carolina, which improved to 8-1-2 in its last 11 games and moved past Pittsburgh into fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Flames 5, Red Wings 3 - Mike Cammalleri scored a goal and added two assists as Calgary snapped visiting Detroit's four-game winning streak.
The only goal of the first period came at 10:57 when Dion Phaneuf scored his 11th goal on Calgary's second shot. Phaneuf's harmless-looking snap shot from just over the blue line beat Chris Osgood on his glove side.
