PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Darroll Powe, Scott Hartnell, and James van Riemsdyk scored goals as the Philadelphia Flyers edged New Jersey 3-2 to snap the Devils' eight game winning streak on Monday night.

Zach Parise scored in a goal-mouth scramble with 0.6 seconds left in regulation and David Clarkson also had a goal for the Devils, who fell one win short of tying the NHL record of 10 road victories to start the season, set by the 2006-07 Buffalo Sabres.

Claude Giroux had two assists and Ray Emery made 33 saves for the Flyers, who have won six of their last seven games.

Martin Brodeur stopped 32 shots for the Devils, who trailed the entire game.

BOSTON (AP) - Matt Moulson scored two goals and Dwayne Roloson stopped 28 shots to lead New York.

John Tavares also scored to make it 3-1 - a goal that was originally credited as Moulson's third of the game before being corrected on review - and Trent Hunter added an empty-netter with 49 seconds left.

Tuukka Rask made 17 saves and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which killed off all five penalties and has not allowed a goal in 22 consecutive power plays.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jakub Voracek scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout to lift Columbus past Edmonton.

After Voracek's goal, Mathieu Garon stopped Gilbert Brule to secure Columbus' fourth win in five games.

Anton Stralman had a goal and assist and Antoine Vermette also scored for the Blue Jackets.

Lubomir Visnovsky had a goal and assist and Ales Hemsky also tallied for Edmonton. The Oilers, losers of four in a row, have only two wins in their last 12 games.

All the goals in regulation were on the power play with Edmonton taking a 2-1 lead on Visnovsky's score 5:48 into the third period before Vermette tied it with 7:34 left on a redirection.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Bill Guerin ended Pittsburgh's eight-game streak without a power-play goal by scoring in the first period, Jordan Staal scored short-handed and the Penguins wrapped up Anaheim's winless four-game road trip.

Guerin, who turned 39 last week, missed by an assist of having the so-called Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, an assist and a fight. He fought in the third period with Ryan Getzlaf, who is 14 years younger, trading several punches before Guerin put the Ducks' alternate captain on his back to earn one of the night's loudest ovations from the sellout crowd of 17,052.

Guerin's goal made it 2-0 at 5:13 of the first period and halted a streak of 30 consecutive unsuccessful Penguins power plays. Matt Cooke had two goals and Martin Skoula also scored for Pittsburgh.

Todd Marchant and Teemu Selanne scored for Anaheim.

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Defenseman Jack Johnson scored the only goal in the shootout, and Los Angeles rallied past Florida.

Johnson and Jarrett Stoll scored power-play goals and Randy Jones scored short-handed for the Kings, came back from a 2-0 deficit and closed out a five-game road trip at 3-2.

Jonathan Quick finished with 26 saves for Los Angeles, which beat Florida for the fifth straight time.

Nathan Horton, Cory Stillman and Victor Oreskovich scored for the Panthers. Tomas Vokoun, who came in with three shutouts in his previous five starts, stopped 31 shots for Florida.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Vincent Lecavalier had two goals and an assist and Mike Smith made 30 saves to lead Tampa Bay.

Alex Tanguay had a goal and two assists and Martin St. Louis also scored for the Lightning, who have recorded points in six straight games - four wins and two overtime losses.

Adrian Aucoin scored the lone goal for the Coyotes, who have dropped five of their past seven.
