Flyers regain their footing

SUNRISE — The Flyers took advantage of the sun and rest during their trip to Florida, and it appears to have been time well spent. Danny Briere, Braydon Coburn and Matt Read scored, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves in the Flyers' 3-2 victory over the Panthers on Sunday night.

Bryzgalov won for the fourth time in five starts. The Flyers lost 2-1 in overtime at Tampa Bay on Wednesday, then took two days off before returning to practice Saturday.

"I thought our guys really competed well, skated well," Flyers coach Pete Laviolette said. "I thought our guys responded well and played a hard-fought game."

Game highlights: Jonathan Toews and Steve Montador each scored twice as the host Blackhawks beat the Oilers 6-3 for their third straight victory. Montador, a defenseman playing his 10th NHL season, had his first two-goal game.

Around the league: Sabres goalie Ryan Miller is out indefinitely with a concussion after he was leveled by Bruins forward Milan Lucic on Saturday when he left the crease. "(Lucic has) 50 pounds on me and he runs me like that?" Miller said. "… That was gutless."
