Flyers beat Senators 2-1, move to .500 record for 1st time this season

PHILADELPHIA - Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds had goals and Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 33 shots to help the Philadelphia Flyers defeat the Ottawa Senators 2-1 on Saturday.

The win gave the Flyers a .500 record for the first time this season, at 11-11-1. Philadelphia has won five of its last seven games.

Marc Methot scored for the Senators, who lost in regulation for the first time since Feb. 16.

Goalie Ben Bishop had won his last four starts for Ottawa, posting 1.69 goals-against average during the stretch. But the Senators have had trouble scoring on the road and struggled to get quality chances against the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
