Rinaldo scores rare goal, Flyers top Canadiens 3-1 for 10th straight home victory

PHILADELPHIA - Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo and Michael Raffl scored to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to their 10th straight home victory, 3-1 over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

The surging Flyers returned home after a 5-1 trip that sent them to fourth in the Eastern Conference. Brushing off 1-7 and 4-10-1 starts to become one of the hottest teams in the NHL, they are 9-2 since Dec. 17 and have found new life under coach Craig Berube.

The Flyers haven't lost at home since Nov. 7 against New Jersey. They're on their longest home winning streak since they won 11 straight Oct. 27-Dec. 5, 2003.

Steve Mason was again sensational in goal, stopping 19 shots for his 18th win.

Tomas Plekanec scored for the Canadiens.
