PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux ended his 21-game drought and Jay Rosehill, Scott Hartnell and Vinny Lecavalier each scored in a 4-2 win over Edmonton on Saturday.
David Perron and Taylor Hall scored for the Oilers.
The game featured the league’s worst offense (Flyers) versus its worst defense (Oilers). The Flyers scored more than two goals in a game for just the second time this season.

Flyers’ goalie Steve Mason finished with 32 saves.
