Penguins finish off Flyers

Dick Tarnstrom and Tom Kostopoulos scored power-play goals and the Pittsburgh Penguins held off the host Flyers, 2-1, last night, extending Philadelphia's winless streak to five games.

Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 33 saves for the Penguins, who were coming off an 8-0 loss to Montreal Saturday. Pittsburgh had dropped four of its previous five games.

Aubin preserved the win with a brilliant save of Mark Recchi's backhander with 1:35 left in the third period.

Mike Comrie scored the only goal for the Flyers, who had gone 127 minutes 31 seconds without a goal. The Flyers were beaten by Edmonton, 3-0, at home Saturday.

The Flyers have been outscored, 16-6, during their winless streak (0-4-1), but still cling to first place in the Atlantic Division by 3 points over New Jersey.

Blues 7, Blackhawks 4 -- Chris Pronger scored twice and added an assist, and St. Louis prolonged Chicago's road woes. The Blackhawks are winless in 14 straight on the road (0-13-0-1) and have not won away from home since Nov. 7. Neither starting goalie made it to the finish. St. Louis's Chris Osgood allowed four goals on 14 shots and was pulled for Reinhard Divis. Chicago's Michael Leighton left in favor of Steve Passmore after giving up four goals on 16 shots. Wild 3, Predators 3 -- Sergei Zholtok scored with 13.9 seconds left in the third period as host Minnesota tied Nashville.
