Rakell lifts Ducks past Flyers
Forward scores twice, Philadelphia loses third in rowby Adam Kimelman @NHLAdamK / NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor
PHILADELPHIA -- Rickard Rakell shouldn't have any trouble sleeping after his second two-goal game of the season helped the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday.
It was Anaheim's seventh win in its past eight games (7-1-0).
The Ducks lost 6-2 at the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday, and Rakell was minus-4, the worst rating of his NHL career.

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux didn't come out and guarantee his team would beat the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday at Wells Fargo Center. But he's certainly feeling confident.
"After we win tonight we'll be able to put those games behind us and move forward from here," Giroux said when asked about how quickly the Flyers had moved on from weekend losses against the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals.
