Flyers end Pens' win streak

PHILADELPHIA — Scott Hartnell scored a power-play goal at 9:54 of the third period and the Flyers snapped the Penguins' 12-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Tuesday.

Evgeni Malkin returned after missing four games with a knee injury and scored both Pittsburgh goals. But he also was called for the interference penalty that gave the Flyers the power play on which they scored the winner.

"We got some big (penalty) kills during the game; it's just that last one hurt us," said Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who had his personal-best 11-game winning streak ended.

The Flyers have won five of six and moved past the Penguins into first place in the league.

Sidney Crosby assisted on both Malkin goals, extending his point streak to 19 games, which ties his career best first done in 2007.

All-Star voting: Sidney Crosby remained the overall leader after four weeks with 410,754 votes, and Steven Stamkos remained third with 219,090. The Penguins' Kris Letang remained the top defenseman and the Canadiens' Carey Price the top goalie for the Jan. 30 game in Raleigh, N.C. The top three forwards, two defensemen and goaltender are automatically All-Stars. The other 36 players will be chosen by the NHL's Hockey Operations Department. All players will select two captains for each team, and the captains will draft their teams. Voting at ends Jan. 3.

Ducks: Coach Randy Carlyle's contract was extended through 2011-12. Terms weren't revealed.

  1. Joe Maddon gets warm reception in return to the Trop

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon (70) talks with reporters during a press conference before the start of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.

    TAMPA — When Hall of Famer Phil Esposito first saw Lightning prospect Oleg Sosunov, he joked that the 6-foot-8 defenseman could reach the Amalie Arena ceiling.

    ST. PETERSBURG — On this particular night, he's the other guy. He's like a talk-show guest scooted to the end of the couch. He is Kevin Cash. And the Rays manager is standing in the home dugout at Tropicana Field.
