Ex-Canadien Shoots Down Montreal

COMBINED REPORTS


PHILADELPHIA -- Former Canadiens' defenseman Eric Desjardins scored with 29.8 seconds left in overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 3-2 victory over Montreal, snapping a four-game winless streak.


Thursday's game was marred when Flyers defenseman Petr Svoboda suffered a concussion after he was elbowed in the face by Montreal's Marc Bureau and struck his head on the ice.


Desjardins took a pass from Rod Brind'Amour and fired a wrist shot from the right point over the left shoulder of goaltender Pat Jablonski.


The goal gave the Flyers just their second win in 10 games and helped them avert their eighth tie since Dec. 21.


Svoboda, also a former Hab, needed hospitalization after he was injured with 12:10 left in the second period.


"I'm a physical player, I never try to injure anybody, especially a guy like Svoboda, he's a good player," said Bureau. "You don't feel good to see a guy on a stretcher. For myself, I think it was a clean hit."


"I watched the tape between periods," Flyers coach Terry Murray said. "To deliberately go at a guy and throw an elbow, that's an intent to injure ... a match penalty in my mind. I hope it is reviewed by the league and he gets some kind of suspension."


Bruins 2, Panthers 2. In Boston, Jody Hull knocked a rebound past Bill Ranford at 11:15 of the third period and John Vanbiesbrouck stopped four Boston shots in overtime.


Vanbiesbrouck (18-9-5) shut the door on the Bruins in the overtime period. Bill Ranford (16-21-6) stopped 25 Florida shots, including two in overtime.


Capitals 4, Senators 2. In Kanata, Ontario, Dale Hunter scored the game-winner midway through the third period as the Washington Capitals overcame a two-goal deficit to win.


Frank Musil and Steve Duchesne scored for the Senators.


Blues 2, Canucks 2. In St. Louis, Alexander Mogilny had one apparent goal waved off in the final minute of regulation, then scored with 7.9 seconds to go to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-2 tie with the St. Louis Blues.


Avalanche 6, Jets 4. In Denver, Joe Sakic ignited a three-goal second period with a shorthanded goal and Claude Lemieux scored two goals as the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Winnipeg Jets 6-4. ()
