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.

    Public Safety

    Players arriving for a tournament this week at Muirfield Village might notice a framed picture of Tiger Woods with a resplendent smile and bright red shirt. He's posed there with the trophy, an image that embodies the excitement he once brought to golf.

  3. Four key games that could decide Bucs' success in 2017


    The Bucs finished so close to making the playoffs in 2016 -- literally flip-flop the last two results and have them beat the Saints and lose to the Panthers and they're in as a wild card with the same 9-7 record -- that it's difficult to say with any certainty what will happen in the 2017 season.

    Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, shown celebrating a touchdown against the Giants in 2015, will face New York again this fall in Week 4 in Tampa.
  4. Frank Deford wrote with sincerity, giving depth to complicated sports figures

    Human Interest

    Frank Deford practically invented the notion of multimedia: He exported his voice to radio, TV and film, and if you didn't know him you might have thought he was an actor, because he wore purple suits and looked like Clark Gable. But Frank, who died Sunday at age 78, was a writer above all things, and an important …
