Canadiens score 44 seconds apart in third period of 5-3 victory over Flyers

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA - Roman Hamrlik and Michael Komisarek scored goals 44 seconds apart in the third period, helping the Montreal Canadiens rally to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3 on Monday night.

The Canadiens could have used some of that quick scoring in last season's playoffs when they were bounced by the Flyers in the second round. Flyers goalie Martin Biron was a post-season star last season, but his early struggles this season are one reason why they have dropped their first two games - both at the Wachovia Center.

Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored the final two goals of the second to lift the Flyers to a 2-1 lead going into the third.

Hamrlik, though, erased the lead when he took a nifty pass from Alex Kovalev and slid the puck past Biron from the left slot.

Komisarek then gave Montreal the lead for good, when his shot from the point bounced over Biron to make it 3-2.
