Isles 4, Philadelphia 3
Zach Parise scored the winning goal with 8:09 to play, breaking a 3-3 tie, as the Isles earned their seventh win in their last nine games (7-2-0) with a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers before another sellout crowd of 17,255 at UBS Arena.
Gerry Mayhew had scored the tying goal on a 4-on-4 situation early in the third period, setting the stage for Parise's game winner. The Isles are 10-4-1 in their last 15 games and once again move over NHL-.500. The loss dropped the Isles back to NHL-.500 and back into 9th place (by points percentage) in the conference.
Philadelphia's Keith Yandle played in his 965th consecutive game, breaking the NHL record set by Doug Jarvis in the 1970's/1980s. Yandle was honored by the crowd during the first tv timeout and was awarded the game's 3rd Star.
