Sunday's NHL Capsules

PHILADELPHIA - Patrice Bergeron scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and also tallied in the shootout to help the Boston Bruins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

The Bruins have won nine straight road games, a single-season club record.

Reilly Smith, the fifth Boston shooter, clinched the victory in the tiebreaker. The Bruins went 15-1-1 in March.

Vincent Lecavalier scored twice for the Flyers, including the tying goal with 25 seconds left in regulation. Lecavalier's first goal was the 400th of his career.

Kimmo Timonen scored for Philadelphia, which has lost three of four to remain in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

Andrej Meszaros and Zdeno Chara also scored for the Bruins.

RED WINGS 3, LIGHTNING 2

DETROIT (AP) — David Legwand had a goal and an assist, and Detroit held off Tampa Bay to move into seventh place in the Eastern Conference.

Joakim Andersson and Gustav Nyquist also scored for Detroit, and Jonas Gustavsson stopped 26 shots.

Valtteri Filppula and Sami Salo scored for Tampa Bay and Ben Bishop made 27 saves.

Legwand assisted on Nyquist's goal that gave Detroit a 2-1 lead with 4:36 remaining in the first. He made it 3-1 on a power-play score with 3:24 left in the second period, tipping in Johan Franzen's shot for his 13th goal.

SENATORS 6, FLAMES 3

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris had two goals apiece, leading the Senators to the win.

Jared Cowen gave Ottawa a lift with a tiebreaking goal on a wrist shot 1:12 into the third period, and Clarke MacArthur made it 5-3 with a tip-in at 12:22. Turris then scored his 25th goal into an empty net.

Robin Lehner made 37 saves as the Senators won back-to-back games on home ice for the first time since they won three straight in late December and early January.

Matt Stajan, Paul Byron and Sean Monahan scored for the Flames, and Karri Ramo made 31 saves.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
