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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
