Flyers 4, Coyotes 2
Center Claude Giroux and defenseman Mark Streit enjoyed milestone games and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-2.
Giroux scored a goal for his 500th career NHL point, while Streit ripped off three assists in the first period to reach 400 lifetime points as the Flyers (28-22-11) won consecutive games for the first time in nearly a month.

Penguins 4, Jets 1
Goals by defenseman Kris Letang and left winger Carl Hagelin in the first minute of the second period helped carry the Pittsburgh Penguins past the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 Saturday afternoon.
Hagelin added a second goal and centre Scott Wilson added one for Pittsburgh, which is 6-0 at home since the Jets moved to Winnipeg and on a 15-0 streak at home against that franchise. The team was the Atlanta Thrashers the last time it won in Pittsburgh, 4-2, on Dec. 27, 2006.
Predators 5, Blues 0
Left winger Filip Forsberg's second natural hat trick of the week enabled the Nashville Predators to continue their winning ways while finally cracking the code on the St. Louis Blues.

Blue Jackets 4, Panthers 3 (shootout)
Centre Brandon Dubinsky scored the only goal for either team in the shootout, and the Columbus Blue Jackets came back to beat the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Saturday in Nationwide Arena.
Defenseman Seth Jones and left winger Brandon Saad scored third-period goals to get the slow-starting Blue Jackets back into the game.
Left winger Scott Hartnell also scored for the Blue Jackets, while goaltender Joonas Korpisalo had 28 saves.
