PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Steven Stamkos, Dominic Moore and Paval Kubina scored goals to help the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Thursday night in an emotional return for Simon Gagne.

Gagne, a playoff hero last season in the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup finals, spent the first 10 seasons of his career with Philadelphia before being dealt to Tampa Bay during the summer to clear salary cap space.

Dan Ellis made 24 saves for Tampa Bay.

Nikolay Zherdev and Danny Briere scored for Philadelphia.

OTTAWA (AP) - Mike Fisher scored his second goal of the game on a power play 14:03 into the third and Ottawa recovered for its first victory in four games this season.

Fisher drove a slap shot from the slot past Cam Ward to restore Ottawa's one-goal lead after Carolina scored goals 1:39 apart earlier in the period to tie it at 2.

Milan Michalek also scored for the Senators. Carolina captain Eric Staal assisted on Sergei Samsonov's goal 7:20 into the third before drawing the Hurricanes even with his first of the season at 8:59.
