Flyers top Blues 4-1 for 5th straight win; Hartnell, Schenn score in 2nd period

PHILADELPHIA - Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn each scored in the second period to rally the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win Saturday over the St. Louis Blues and a fifth straight victory.

Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds added goals, and Steve Mason made 32 saves to help Philadelphia improve to 12-2-1 in its last 15 games to maintain its hold on second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Jaden Schwartz opened the scoring 6:23 into the game, finishing a 2-on-1 short-handed opportunity after taking a feed from Kevin Shattenkirk. Schwartz's wrist shot from close range went under the glove of Mason.

St. Louis needed one point in the game to become the first Western Conference team to clinch a playoff spot.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
