Hartnell and Giroux have 3 points each, Mason makes 33 saves, Flyers beat Red Wings 5-0

PHILADELPHIA - Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux each had three points, Steve Mason made 33 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the banged up Detroit Red Wings 5-0 Tuesday night.

Adam Hall and Sean Couturier also scored for the Flyers, who snapped a four-game losing streak. The Flyers (26-22-6) won an eighth straight game at home against the Red Wings (23-19-11), a franchise best against Detroit, which has not won in Philadelphia since the 1997 Stanley Cup final.

Mason recorded his second shutout of the season and the 21st of his career.

Starting in place of Jimmy Howard, who was back on the Detroit bench after missing three games with a knee injury, Jonas Gustavsson stopped 23 of 28 shots

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
