RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Ray Emery made 28 saves in his Philadelphia debut, leading the Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night in their opener.
Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored power-play goals 22 seconds apart for Philadelphia. The Flyers put their first two shots of the second period past Cam Ward and held on for their eighth win in 10 meetings with Carolina.
Playing two days after signing a six-year, $37.8 million contract, Ward stopped 25 shots for Carolina. The Hurricanes came up empty on all eight of their power-play chances and were shut out in their opener for the first time in franchise history.
Emery finished with his ninth career shutout.
HELSINKI (AP) - Finnish defender Ville Koistinen scored the winning shootout goal for Florida, and Tomas Vokoun stopped Chicago's Patrick Sharp on the final attempt.
Koistinen also scored in regulation in the first NHL game in Finland. Michael Frolik and David Booth added regulation goals for Florida, and Steven Reinprecht had a shootout goal for the Panthers.
Chicago's Patrick Kane scored the first NHL goal on Finnish ice and added an assist. Sharp and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for Chicago, and Jonathan Toews had a shootout goal for the Blackhawks.
STOCKHOLM (AP) - Paul Kariya scored twice and B.J. Crombeen added a goal in a 5:05 span of the second period for St. Louis.
Jay McClement also scored for the Blues. Jonathan Ericsson, Kirk Maltby and Ville Leino scored to help Detroit take a 3-1 lead.
The Blues spoiled the homecoming for Detroit's seven Swedes. Detroit was listed as the home team and the pro-Detroit sellout crowd of 13,850 at Ericsson Globe arena gave the Red Wings the biggest ovation during pregame presentations.
