Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist, rookie Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 on Sunday.

Nikolay Zherdev and Scott Hartnell also scored, and Claude Giroux had four assists for the Flyers in the only regular-season rematch of the Blackhawks’ victory last year in the Stanley Cup finals.

The 22-year-old Bobrovsky lost a bid for his first career shutout at 6:49 of the third period when Marian Hossa scored on a penalty shot. Philadelphia leads the NHL with 69 points and is 9-2-0 in its last 11.

Chicago lost in regulation for the first time since Jan. 5.


Thrashers 1 at Lightning 7

Steven Stamkos notched his NHL-best 38th goal to take over sole possession of the league scoring lead and help Tampa Bay win its fourth straight game.

The Southeast leaders beat the Thrashers for the 11th straight time, completing a six-game sweep of the season series between the division rivals in their second game in four days.

Martin St. Louis, Nate Thompson, Dana Tyrell and Simon Gagne joined Stamkos in scoring during a five-goal second period that quickly got away from Atlanta. The Thrashers have dropped seven of their past eight games.

Stamkos hiked it to 3-0 when he redirected St. Louis’ shot past Pavelec to move ahead of injured Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby for sole possession of the league points lead with 67. The first-time all-star has seven goals in his last six games and has been especially tough on Atlanta with nine goals and three assists this season. Crosby has missed eight straight games because of a concussion.

Gagne had a second goal in the third period, and Pavel Kubina also scored for Tampa Bay. Dwayne Roloson made 21 saves for Tampa Bay, allowing only Rich Peverley’s goal with just over four minutes remaining.


Panthers 2 at Devils 5

Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists, Jason Arnott scored twice and Martin Brodeur made 24 saves to help resurgent New Jersey extend its winning streak to four.

Brian Rolston and Patrik Elias also scored for the Devils, who have picked up points in seven straight games (6-0-1). Their only blip during the surge was a 3-2 overtime loss at Florida on Jan. 15.

Shawn Matthias and Marty Reasoner scored for Florida.


Sabres 5 at Islanders 3

Nathan Gerbe snapped a tie early in the third period with a power-play goal, and Buffalo salvaged a split of the home-and-home series.

After scoring goals five seconds apart in the third period Friday night in Buffalo’s 5-2 home loss to New York, Gerbe finished a three-way passing play to net the winner 1:48 into the final period Sunday.

Paul Gaustad, Tyler Ennis, Tyler Myers and Jason Pominville added goals for Buffalo. Matt Moulson scored twice and Jack Hillen also scored for New York.
