PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Manny Malhotra got his first two goals of the season, Dany Heatley and Jed Ortmeyer also scored and the San Jose Sharks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 Sunday night.

Patrick Marleau and Dan Boyle had two assists each and backup goalie Thomas Greiss stopped 37 shots for the Sharks, who won for the fourth time in five games to complete a 4-2 road trip.

Darroll Powe scored the lone goal for the Flyers, who had their two-game winning streak snapped.

Philadelphia goalie Brian Boucher stopped 24 shots in his first start of the season.

Flyers captain Mike Richards was in the lineup after having been cleared by the NHL for a hard hit on Florida left wing David Booth in a 5-1 win over the Panthers on Saturday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Anze Kopitar and Alexander Frolov each scored twice and Jarret Stoll had a goal and an assist to lead Los Angeles.

Michael Handzus also scored for the Kings, whose fourth straight victory matched their longest winning streak of last season. Jonathan Quick, stopped 24 shots - including a penalty shot by Rick Nash in the first period - in his first start since signing a three-year contract extension.

Antoine Vermette and Kristian Huselius scored for the Blue Jackets, who completed their trip 1-3 after a franchise-best 5-1-0 start that included a 4-1 win over the Kings at Columbus on Oct. 17.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Roberto Luongo made 27 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead Vancouver past Edmonton.

Rookie Michael Grabner and Henrik Sedin scored on deflections for the Canucks, who have won three straight games for the first time this season.

Luongo played for a second-straight night after making 35 saves in a 3-1 win over Toronto on Saturday, and continued to show signs he is over an early season slump. Despite coming into the game with an uncharacteristically low .894 save-percentage, Luongo has now allowed just six goals in his last five games.
