Final Score: Philadelphia 5, Detroit 0
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Steve Mason posted 33 stops for his
second shutout of the season as the Philadelphia Flyers took a 5-0 win over
the Detroit Red Wings.
Scott Hartnell had two goals and an assist, Claude Giroux gave a goal and two
assists while Sean Couturier and Adam Hall also scored for the Flyers, who
came into the game having dropped four straight and seven of nine.
"I think we cleaned a lot of those mistakes and took them out of our game,"
said Mason. "There are still some little mistakes but it's a lot better, and
we can build on that."
Philadelphia continued its home mastery of Detroit, winning its eighth
straight against the Red Wings in front of the home crowd, having last lost on
Jan. 25, 1997.
Jonas Gustavsson stopped 23 shots for the Red Wings, who have dropped their
past two games.
"Well, I thought we did a lot of good things early," said Detroit head coach
Mike Babcock. "I thought we were in it, then too many self-inflicted wounds.
We've got to be ultra-hardworking. We didn't have enough details tonight with
or without the puck."
Philly took the lead at 13:42 of the first on the power play, as a slap shot
from Kimmo Timonen in the high slot was redirected into the net by Hartnell.
It was Hartnell again for a 2-0 lead, as Giroux skated down the right wing and
fed the puck over to the left where Hartnell snapped it in for his 14th of the
season at 8:08 of the second period.
Just under three minutes later, the Flyers made it a 3-0 game as Michael
Raffl's shot from the left point hit Hall, who was able to find the loose puck
and pop in a backhander for his third of the year.
Giroux gave his team a 4-0 advantage midway through the third as his heavy
wrister from the left circle knicked off the glove of Gustavsson and in.
Couturier scored on a wraparound from the right side with 3:51 to play to
account for the final score.
Philadelphia heads out west for games in Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose
starting on Thursday ... Detroit hosts Washington on Friday to start a home-
and-home set ... The Flyers took two of three from the Red Wings this season
... Mason has 21 shutouts in his career.
