Oilers, Flyers edge to wins


The Edmonton Oilers extended their winning streak in the NHL, while the Philadelphia Flyers edged to a victory.

The Oilers recorded their third straight win, overcoming the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Wednesday.

Mark Letestu and Milan Lucic, the latter in a power-play, scored in the first period at Gila River Arena.

Matt Hendricks stretched the lead before Martin Hanzal and Oliver Ekman-Larsson struck for the Coyotes, but it was too little too late.

Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot was in fine form, stopping 28 of the 30 shots he faced.

Another goalie, Steve Mason, led the Flyers past the Washington Capitals 3-2 following a shoot-out.

Mason made 36 saves through overtime as the Flyers condemned the Capitals to a second straight loss.

Philadelphia had twice come from behind to force OT, before Mason's third save of the shoot-out - to deny Justin Williams - secured the win.
