PHILADELPHIA — Scott Laughton scored 2:22 into overtime, Cam Atkinson had a pair of goals in regulation and assisted on the winner, and the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a franchise-record 13-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Laughton scored on the rebound of Atkinson’s shot as the Flyers picked up their first victory since Dec. 29.

Viktor Arvidsson had a goal and an assist, and Arthur Kaliyev and Anze Kopitar also scored for the Kings. Los Angeles was playing the fourth contest of a six-game road trip.

With a long losing streak and heavy snowstorm blanketing Philadelphia, the Flyers thanked the diehard fans who showed up with free parking outside and free pretzels, hot dogs and soda inside the arena. The club closed the upper level, and the lower level appeared about 75% full.

The Flyers gave those who braved the weather something to cheer about, something that has been rare of late.

But it sure wasn’t easy.


The Flyers looked like they had their first win in 2022 in regulation, but Kopitar scored on a backhander after a scramble in front of the goal with 37.4 seconds left in the third.

DUCKS 2, SENATORS 1: Troy Terry and Rickard Rakell scored, John Gibson made a season-high 44 saves, and Anaheim won at Ottawa.

The Senators held a wide advantage in shots at 45-20 but only managed one goal from Tyler Ennis.

The Ducks have won four of their last five games.

Anton Forsberg played a solid game, making 18 saves, but a third-period goal from Terry proved to be the difference. Terry took a pass from Ryan Getzlaf, and from the top of the faceoff circle sent a quick shot on goal, beating Forsberg to the far side at 3:42.

JETS 4, BLUES 1: Paul Stastny scored twice, Eric Comrie made 24 saves in his first start since Dec. 5 and Winnipeg won at St. Louis to snap a six-game winless streak.


Nate Schmidt and Kyle Connor also scored for Winnipeg.

PANTHERS 5, SHARKS 4: Sam Bennett scored 1:08 into overtime and Florida came from behind to earn its ninth straight victory at home.

Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and two assists, and Gustav Forsling added a goal and an assist for Florida. Aleksander Barkov and Mason Marchment also scored, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 30 shots in front of a season-high crowd of 18,152.

The Panthers (31-9-5), who lead the NHL with 67 points, have won three in a row and eight of 10. They improved to 23-3-0 at home.

HURRICANES 2, DEVILS 1: Antti Raanta made 24 saves in his first action in nearly a month as Carolina won at home.

Jordan Martinook and Andrei Svechnikov scored in the first period to help the Hurricanes win their third straight and sixth in the last seven.


Raanta had been sidelined since Jan. 1 because of an upper body injury.

Jesper Boqvist scored for the Devils, who have lost seven of their last eight games. Jon Gillies stopped 21 shots for New Jersey.

OILERS 7, CANADIENS 2: Zach Hyman and Leon Draisaitl each had two goals and Evander Kane scored in his Edmonton debut, leading the Oilers to a win at Montreal.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Derek Ryan also scored for Edmonton. Stuart Skinner made 21 saves to help the Oilers win their fourth straight.

Josh Anderson and Tyler Toffoli scored for Montreal in its fifth straight loss.

MAPLE LEAFS 7, RED WINGS 4: Michael Bunting had three goals, Rasmus Sandin scored the tiebreaker with 2:51 remaining and Toronto rallied for five unanswered goals in the third period at Detroit.


Mitch Marner scored a power-play goal with 1:14 left and John Tavares, who assisted on Sandin’s goal, made it 7-4 with 11 seconds to go. Pierre Engvall also scored for Toronto.

GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3, LIGHTNING 2: Mark Stone scored the winner in the seventh round of a shootout and Vegas won at Tampa Bay after blowing a two-goal lead in the third period.

Robin Lehner stopped 27 shots for the Golden Knights, including 18 combined in the third period and overtime. Brett Howden and William Carrier each had a goal and an assist.

Ross Colton and Corey Perry scored in the third period for the Lightning. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 25 saves.
