PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Captain Mike Richards scored two goals for the second straight game, and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots to lead the surging Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.
Danny Briere, Darroll Powe and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, who are 9-0-1 in their past 10 games, and haven’t lost in regulation since losing a lackluster 2-1 game to Ottawa on Oct. 25, a defeat that stoked the ire of coach Peter Laviolette.
The game was stopped for a few moments in the first period when a young girl was struck in the head when a puck deflected into the stands. She received medical attention and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
