PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Jeff Carter scored two goals and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 on Tuesday night to snap a season-high four-game losing streak.

Danny Briere and Blair Betts also scored for the Eastern Conference-leading Flyers. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 24 shots.

Jean-Francois Jacques scored for Edmonton, which is last in the West. The Oilers had won three in a row.

The slumping Flyers had seen their lead in the East shrink from double digits to just two points. Coach Peter Laviolette gave the team off on Monday after a 7-0 loss at the New York Rangers. Philadelphia had been outscored 12-1 in the previous two games after taking a 2-0 lead against Buffalo on Saturday.
