Malhotra's OT Goal Lifts Hurricanes Over Flyers

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Manny Malhotra scored 2:40 into overtime, and the Carolina Hurricanes broke a five-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Justin Peters stopped 28 shots and earned his first win of the season while starting his fifth straight game since replacing the injured Cam Ward on Oct. 24.

Scott Hartnell had given Philadelphia a 1-0 lead with 3:58 left in regulation, but Jared Staal tied it with 52.3 seconds remaining to force overtime.

The Flyers, who have lost three of four, have scored more than two goals only once this season in 14 games.
