Flyers 3, Devils 1. At Philadelphia, Rod Brind'Amour tied the game with a shorthanded goal early in the final period and assisted on the game-winner.


Brind'Amour's goal at 1:08 of the third came off a perfect cross-rink pass from Joel Otto while Philadelphia was killing the end of a major penalty.


Karl Dykhuis then gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead with a power-play goal with 9:59 remaining. Dykhuis held the puck at the blue line, skated to the middle of the ice and unloaded a slapshot that got by New Jersey goalie Martin Broduer to the short side.


Shjon Podein sealed the victory with a slap shot from 70 feet that caromed off New Jersey defenseman Jason Smith and sailed by Broduer at 12:25.


The victory was Philadelphia's 700th on home ice and their first at the new CoreStates Center.


Canadiens 6, Mighty Ducks 6, OT. In Montreal, Brian Savage scored a hat trick for Montreal, but Anaheim's Bobby Dollas tied the game in the third period and the teams battled to a tie.


The Canadiens overcame a two-goal deficit in the third period and took a 6-5 lead before Dallas scored with 14:09 left in regulation.


The Mighty Ducks outshot the Canadiens 5-0 in overtime, but neither team could score. For the game, Montreal outshot Anaheim 42-24.


Montreal trailed 5-3 after two periods, but Savage and Pierre Turgeon scored 53 seconds apart to tie it at 5. Mark Recchi then put the Canadiens ahead on a power-play goal at 8:17.
