NHL.com @NHL

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Brayden Schenn scored twice, Vincent Lecavalier added his first goal in nearly three months, and the Philadelphia Flyers had little trouble with the injury-depleted Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Wednesday night.

Carlo Colaiacovo chipped in a rare goal for the Flyers, who ended a nine-game, road-losing streak. Steve Mason stopped 24 shots for Philadelphia as the Flyers won their seventh straight game in Pittsburgh.

Sidney Crosby scored his 300th career goal for the Penguins and boosted his NHL-leading point total to 80, but Pittsburgh mustered little offence on a night the team played without injured stars Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for the Penguins, who remained tied with the New York Islanders for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

SABRES 4, MAPLE LEAFS 1

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) ? Matt Moulson and Matt Ellis scored 1:41 apart in the third period, and Buffalo rallied to beat Toronto.

The Sabres overcame a 3-1 second-period deficit and won their second straight, inching closer to moving out of last place in the NHL. Zac Dalpe and Cody Hodgson also scored.

Ellis added an assist, and Brian Gionta set up two goals for Buffalo (22-47-8), which moved to within two points of 29th-place Arizona.

James van Riemsdyk, Eric Brewer and Nazem Kadri scored for Toronto (29-43-6), which squandered a chance to win three straight for the first time since a six-game run from Dec. 10-16. The Maple Leafs are 10-34-3 since.
