Rick Tocchet and Brian Propp scored two goals apiece last night to give the Flyers a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Philadelphia.
The result extended the Blues' winless streak at the Spectrum to 0-31-3 since Jan. 6, 1972, when St. Louis posted a 3-2 victory.
Tocchet, who also had three assists, put the Flyers ahead, 4-3, on a power play 2:13 into the third period. He took a pass from Mark Howe and beat goaltender Greg Millen for his 12th goal of the season.
Propp, playing his first game since injuring a knee Dec. 22, padded the lead to 5-3 at 10:17 by putting the rebound of a Tocchet shot past Millen for his 13th goal of the season. The line of Propp, Tocchet and Pelle Eklund scored 12 points in the game.
Howe scored his eighth goal of the season, at 12:02 on a power play, to put Philadelphia ahead, 6-3, before Tony Hrkac scored his eighth goal of the season at 18:52 to cap the scoring.
St. Louis right wing Jocelyn Lemieux suffered a broken left leg just 1:11 into the game when he was checked into the boards by Philadelphia's Peter Zezel.
Mark Hunter's second goal of the game and 16th of the season gave the Blues a 3-3 tie at 17:07 of the third period. He put a rebound past goaltender Ron Hextall.
Bruins 3, Penguins 2:
In Pittsburgh, Gord Kluzak and Randy Burridge scored shorthanded goals 23 seconds apart late in the first period as Boston extended its unbeaten streak to five games.
The Bruins are 3-0-2 in their last five games and pulled into a tie with the idle Montreal Canadiens for the Adams Division lead with 53 points, second in the NHL.
With Willi Plett in the penalty box for holding, Rick Middleton led a two-on-one rush with Bill O'Dwyer. Pat Riggin stopped Middleton's shot, but Kluzak was able to push the loose puck into the net for his third goal of the season at 18:49.
Canucks 6, Devils 3:
In East Rutherford, N.J., Dave Saunders broke a 3-3 tie with an unassisted goal early in the third period and Vancouver went on to break a seven-game road winless streak.
Saunders grabbed a loose puck at center ice, skated down the left side past defenseman Joe Cirella and beat Devils goalie Alain Chevrier on a 15-foot shot.
