Flyers beat Rangers to snap seven-game skid

Posted: Wednesday, October 25, 2000

NEW YORK -- Keith Primeau scored just 12 seconds into the game, and Simon Gagne had three assists as the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a seven-game winless streak with a 5-4 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

The Flyers, who were 0-5-2 after beating Vancouver on opening night, also got goals from Jody Hull, Daymond Langkow, Justin Williams and Peter White.

Jan Hlavac, Brian Leetch, Adam Graves and Valeri Kamensky scored for the Rangers, who fell to 3-4 overall and 1-3 at home.

Sharks 3, Hurricanes 2

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Marco Sturm scored his NHL-leading third shorthanded goal of the season with 9:52 left as San Jose won its third straight on the road.

The Sharks, the best penalty-killing team in the league, killed off a two-man disadvantage over the final 1:12.

Patrick Marleau gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead 2:10 into the third period. The lead didn't last long as Bates Battaglia tied it on a wraparound five minutes later.

However, Sturm scored his game-winner 35 seconds into Jeff Friesen's holding penalty.

Wild 2, Canadiens 2

MONTREAL -- Eric Weinrich scored a power-play goal with 6:38 left in the third period to lift Montreal to a tie with expansion Minnesota.

Weinrich's shot went just inside the post behind Minnesota goalie Jamie McLennan. It was Weinrich's first goal of the season, and the Canadiens' second power-play score of the game.

The tie gave Montreal a 4-0-1 record at the Molson Centre, the Canadiens' best start at home since they opened the 1979-80 season with a 6-0-0 mark at The Forum.

Canucks 4, Predators 4

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Brendan Morrison scored with 36.9 seconds left in the third period as Vancouver rallied from a four-goal deficit.

Sebastien Bordeleau, Scott Walker, Tom Fitzgerald and Patric Kjellberg each scored, and Randy Robitaille had three assists to give the Predators a 4-0 lead late in the second period.

Markus Naslund finally got the Canucks on the board and started the rally just 24 seconds after Kjellberg's goal when he beat Dunham, who was screened on the play.

Daniel Sedin and Trent Klatt scored third-period goals to cut the lead to 4-3 with 7:33 remaining.

Coyotes 2, Flames 2

CALGARY, Alberta -- Landon Wilson scored 8:17 into the third period to lift Phoenix to a tie with Calgary.

Calgary had a power play in the final 1:08 of overtime, but couldn't beat Coyotes goalie Sean Burke.

Wyatt Smith scored his first career goal as Phoenix (6-1-2-0) extended its unbeaten streak to 4-0-2. The Coyotes also improved to 11-0-4 against Calgary since last losing to the Flames on Oct. 30, 1997.

Rookie Oleg Saprykin and Marc Savard scored for Calgary (3-5-1-0), which dropped to 1-4-1 at home.
