Wednesday's HIGHLIGHTS

Flyers 3, Canadiens 1: Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo and Michael Raffl scored to lead Philadelphia to its 10th straight home victory. The surging Flyers returned home after a 5-1 trip that sent them to fourth in the Eastern Conference. Brushing off 1-7 and 4-10-1 starts to become one of the hottest teams in the NHL, they are 9-2 since Dec. 17. "I think they're confident guys right now and they believe they can win," coach Craig Berube said. "They're not always going to play their best hockey, but we're squeezing wins out."

Rangers 3, Blackhawks 2: Carl Hagelin broke a tie with 5:57 left to lift New York past Chicago. Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves. It was the Blackhawks' first home regulation loss since Dec. 3 vs. Dallas. "We worked so hard, so this is a big one for us," said Lundqvist. Jonathan Toews and Brandon Bollig scored for Chicago, which had recorded at least one point in 10 straight home games.

Avalanche 4, Senators 3: Paul Stastny had the tying goal and two assists, and Tyson Barrie scored 33 seconds into overtime to lift Colorado over Ottawa. The Avalanche was down 3-2 in the third and pressed for the tying goal. John Mitchell nearly tied it when his shot went off the inside of the right post. Stastny got the equalizer moments later when he deked goalie Craig Anderson and scored at 17:40.
