Thrashers top Flyers in OT


November 19, 2005

Greg de Vries scored 3:05 into overtime after Atlanta wiped out a two-goal deficit with power-play scores in the final two minutes of regulation as the Thrashers defeated the host Philadelphia Flyers, 6-5, last night.

After Peter Bondra cut the deficit to one with 1:50 remaining, Patrick Stefan tied it at 5 with seven seconds left. De Vries won it on a breakaway as Atlanta ended a three-game losing streak to the Flyers.

"There was nobody around," de Vries said. "I tried to settle the puck down a bit. Luckily, it went in."

Philadelphia lost its second straight in overtime and third overall.

Blackhawks 5, Flames 2 -- Mark Bell and rookie Mark Cullen each scored twice as visiting Chicago ended the Flames' eight-game winning streak.

Devils 5, Canadiens 3 -- Brian Gionta scored two goals, including the game-winner in the third period, and Scott Gomez had a goal and two assists to lead host New Jersey over Montreal.

Stars 6, Blue Jackets 3 -- Jere Lehtinen scored the last of three Dallas power-play goals at 9:06 of the third period, breaking a tie and sending the host Stars to the victory over Columbus.

Avalanche 3, Mighty Ducks 2 -- Rookie Marek Svatos scored his 10th goal and fifth winner with 5:58 left and Alex Tanguay had three assists as host Colorado handed Anaheim its seventh straight loss.
