BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Daniel Briere scored the clinching shootout goal in helping the Philadelphia Flyers snap a 10-game losing streak by beating Buffalo 4-3 Monday night.
With a chorus of boos raining down on the Sabres' former co-captain, Briere skated in on Ryan Miller, making a series of back-and-forth moves, before stuffing the puck just inside the right post. The goal came in Briere's third game against his former team since signing with Philadelphia last July.
R.J. Umberger, who capped the Flyers' three-goal comeback with 7:15 left in regulation, Jeff Carter and Scott Hartnell also scored for Philadelphia. The Flyers snapped an 0-8-2 skid - matching the longest losing streak in franchise history - and won for the first time since a 3-2 victory at Atlanta on Feb. 5. Philadelphia also jumped into a tie with Buffalo for the Eastern Conference's eight and final playoff spot.
Jason Pominville had a goal and an assist, and Derek Roy and Clarke MacArthur also scored for Buffalo, which squandered a three-goal lead for the first time since a 6-5 overtime loss against Toronto on March 15, 2004.
Maple Leafs 5, Senators 0
OTTAWA (AP) - Vesa Toskala made 31 saves for his third shutout and Darcy Tucker scored two second-period power-play goals.
After exercising his no-trade clause to veto any potential deal away from Toronto with Tuesday's deadline looming, Mats Sundin scored on the power play in the first period. The Maple Leafs converted each of their first three opportunities with the man advantage.
Pavel Kubina and Dominic Moore scored even-strength goals in the second as the Maple Leafs beat Ray Emery four times in the middle period to seal Toronto's third straight win against its provincial rival.
Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle stopped Mike Fisher's shot at a wide-open net with 1:02 remaining to preserve Toskala's 11th career shutout.
Toronto has won four of five.
