FLYERS 3, PANTHERS 2 (OT)

John LeClair scored with 42.1 seconds left in overtime to lift visiting Philadelphia, capitalizing on a turnover by Marcus Nilson in front of the Florida net. Nilson gave the puck away to LeClair, who scooted a wrist shot past Roberto Luongo for his eighth goal.

CANUCKS: The team reacquired former captain Trevor Linden from Washington. Vancouver also received a second-round draft pick in 2002 or 2003 for the Capitals' first-round pick in 2002 and a third-rounder in 2003.

SHARKS: Defenseman Bryan Marchment was suspended for six games for elbowing the head of Hurricanes forward Shane Willis on Friday. Willis is out with a concussion after being knocked to the ice in the third minute.

Robitaille gets No. 600

For Luc Robitaille, an NHL landmark goal came in a new uniform, one he has grown accustomed to in a hurry.

Robitaille, a 16-year veteran now with Detroit, became the 13th NHL player to reach 600 goals in a 1-0 victory late Friday at Anaheim.

The eight-time All-Star left wing scored 520 of those goals in two stints with Los Angeles.

"The biggest reason for my success is how much I love the game and how much I'm willing to pay a price to be successful," Robitaille said. "I play every game like it's my last."

With Robitaille, Brett Hull and Steve Yzerman, the Red Wings have three of the 13 members of the 600-goal club.
