PHILADELPHIA - Brayden Schenn scored his first career hat trick and Philadelphia continued its surge with a 5-3 win over Calgary at Wells Fargo Center.
Schenn became the first Flyers player to record a hat trick on home ice since Scott Hartnell did so Jan. 15, 2012.
Claude Giroux added four assists and Wayne Simmonds scored two goals in the victory, the third straight for Philadelphia on its six-game homestand. With the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 6-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes, the Flyers remain three points out of the Eastern Conference’s second wild-card spot.
Penguins 6, Coyotes 0: Patric Hornqvist scored three goals, Sidney Crosby set up three and goalie Marc-Andre Fleury put up his fifth shutout of the season as the Pittsburgh Penguins rolled past the sliding Arizona Coyotes 6-0 Monday.
Rangers 2, Blue Jackets 1: Derek Stepan scored on a short-handed breakaway with 2:48 remaining in the third period to give New York a victory over Columbus.
Lightning 2, Maple Leafs 1: Tyler Johnson scored twice as Tampa Bay topped Toronto. It was the seventh win in a row for the Lightning and the second loss in a row for the rebuilding Maple Leafs.
Johnson left the game in Boston on Sunday in the third period after being hit in the face by a puck, but he came back strong against the Leafs.
Andrei Vasilevskiy made 31 saves for Tampa Bay, but he was deprived of a shutout on a goal by Nazem Kadri late in the third period. Toronto's Garret Sparks made 26 saves.
