Flyers shake off Chicago rout by edging Canadiens

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Steve Mason stopped 20 shots, while Michael Raffl and Claude Giroux supplied the offense as Philadelphia edged Montreal, 2-1, on Thursday.

Jakub Voracek posted a pair of assists for the Flyers, who put together a solid defensive effort in stark contrast to a 7-2 loss in Chicago on Wednesday which capped a six-game road swing.

Philadelphia has won six in a row on home ice this season and six straight against the Habs here since November of 2010.

Alex Galchenyuk picked up a late tally and Carey Price made 25 saves for the Canadiens, who have lost two in a row after winning four straight.
