Simon Gagne had a goal and an assist as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning, 3-2, last night in a matchup of early-season division leaders.
Jeremy Roenick and John LeClair also scored for the Atlantic Division-leading Flyers, who have lost just once in their last 11 games against Tampa Bay (8-1-2).
"They are a big team," Tampa Bay Coach John Tortorella said. "It's not the style of the Broad Street bullies. They're a well-coached hockey club. They play under a strict team concept. They fill a lot of the ice with big bodies."
Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 29 shots for the Southeast Division-leading Lightning, which fell to 7-1-0-1 at home. He kept the game close by making 25 saves through two periods.
Vincent Lecavalier and Sheldon Keefe scored for Tampa Bay, which had 11 shots through the second and finished with 19.
* RANGERS 3, MIGHTY DUCKS 2: Pavel Bure and Eric Lindros finally came through for New York on a night its coach couldn't make it out of bed.
Bure scored 57 seconds into overtime, snapping a nine-game drought, and Lindros added his first goal in 16 games as the Rangers won at Madison Square Garden.
New York Coach Bryan Trottier missed his third game in the last four, this time because of a sore back that kept him at home. Trottier also missed two games while serving a suspension on New York's four-game road trip.

* HURRICANES 4, SENATORS 4: In Raleigh, N.C., Bates Battaglia and Ron Francis scored 53 seconds apart early in the third period, and Rod Brind'Amour added a goal with eight minutes left as the Hurricanes tied Ottawa.
The three-goal third period wasn't enough for the Hurricanes to pull out a win after falling behind 2-0 in the first because Marian Hossa and Radek Bonk scored late goals for Ottawa. Bonk's came with 6:15 left in regulation.
