The Flyers tied it with 2:04 left when Scott Hartnell corralled Kimo Timonen' pass near the blue line and beat Huet for his first goal since Jan. 30.

Simon Gagne opened the scoring for Philadelphia 1:18 into the third with his sixth goal in seven games. Kris Versteeg tied it 1:43 later on a power play, and Marian Hossa gave the Blackhawks the lead with 7:09 left.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Bryan Allen scored at 2:46 of overtime to help Florida beat San Jose after overcoming an early two-goal deficit.

The Sharks still gained a point to move three points ahead of Chicago for the best record in the Western Conference.

Shawn Matthias tied it off a spin move about 5 minutes into the third period, then set up the winner. Ryane Clowe and Patrick Marleau scored for San Jose.
