Flyers extend home streak

Radovan Somik, Eric Weinrich, and Chris Therien scored their first goals of the season to help the Philadelphia Flyers extend their home-unbeaten streak to 13 games with a 5-2 victory last night over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Jeremy Roenick and Mark Recchi also scored for Philadelphia, the only team in the NHL unbeaten at home (11-0-2). The Flyers had their overall 12-game unbeaten run (10-0-2) snapped with a loss Monday at Ottawa.

Matt Bradley and Ramzi Abid scored for the Penguins, who snapped a three-game winless streak Monday with a win against Atlanta.

Red Wings 7, Mighty Ducks 2 -- Pavel Datsyuk had two goals and two assists, and the Red Wings spoiled Sergei Fedorov's return to Detroit.

After playing 13 seasons with the Red Wings, Fedorov signed a 5-year, $40-million contract with Anaheim in July. He was booed every time he touched the puck, but there was mixed reaction when he scored with 4:40 left in the second.

Wild 1, Oilers 0 -- Manny Fernandez stopped 34 shots for his first shutout of the season and visiting Minnesota extended Edmonton's winless streak to six games.

Marian Gaborik scored in the first period for the Wild, who stopped a five-game winless streak with their first regulation victory over Edmonton.

Predators 2, Hurricanes 1 -- Scott Hartnell scored 3:30 into overtime to lift Nashville at Raleigh, N.C., extending the Predators' winning streak to a team-record five games.

Sabres 3, Blackhawks 2 -- Dmitri Kalinin and Maxim Afinogenov scored third-period goals to lead Buffalo at Chicago.

Senators 4, Panthers 0 -- Backup goalie Martin Prusek stopped 30 shots for his first career shutout to help visiting Ottawa beat Florida, which is winless in four (0-2-2).
