Flyers use balanced offence to beat Blue Jackets 4-2, snap 4-game skid @NHL

PHILADELPHIA - Brayden Schenn, Mark Streit, Wayne Simmonds and Braydon Coburn all scored for the Philadelphia Flyers, who broke a season-worst, four-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux both had two assists, and Voracek improved his NHL-leading points total to 29. Giroux notched his 400th NHL point with his first assist. Steve Mason made 20 saves.

Boone Jenner and Matt Calvert scored for the Blue Jackets, who have lost three games in a row. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 33 shots against his former team. He got the start despite playing through a seven-round shootout loss at Boston on Friday.

During its skid, Philadelphia had allowed the first goal. The Flyers reversed that trend against Columbus.
