UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Trent Hunter scored a goal and set up two others for the New York Islanders, who broke a pair of skids with a 4-3 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.
New York hadn't won at home in seven games, since beating New Jersey on Dec. 29 (0-5-2). The Islanders also didn't have a victory anywhere since a 6-3 win at Carolina on Jan. 22, also a span of seven games (0-6-1).
Hunter scored for the first time in a month, and Jeff Tambellini and Sean Bergenheim added goals in the second period for the Islanders, who are tied for 12th in the Eastern Conference, and beat the Flyers for the first time in four meetings this season.
Rick DiPietro made 26 saves to win for the first time since Jan. 16 and send the injury-riddled Flyers to their fourth straight regulation loss.
Hurricanes 3, Bruins 2
BOSTON (AP) - Andrew Ladd scored twice in the first 6:33, and the Carolina Hurricanes held on after Shawn Thornton had two goals in a 27-second span late in the third period.

Cam Ward protected the shutout until Thornton's shot from the right side went off the top of his glove and into the net with 5:10 left in the game. The Bruins made it 3-2 with 4:43 left when Thornton swatted an idle puck into the net.

Lightning 3, Canadiens 2
