[November 03, 2016]    Nov 2 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of Wednesday's National Hockey League games:

 

Canadiens 3, Canucks 0

The Montreal Canadiens made history with a 3-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night at the Bell Centre.

Nathan Beaulieu, Torrey Mitchell and Alexander Radulov scored to extend the Canadiens' winning streak to eight games, giving them the most points (19) through 10 games in franchise history.

Carey Price made 42 saves for the Canadiens, earning his 37th career shutout. Ryan Miller stopped 19 shots for the struggling Canucks, who dropped their sixth straight.

Flyers 4, Red Wings 3 (OT)

Sixty-four seconds away from ending a 20-year curse in Philadelphia, Detroit gave up a late equalizer then fell in overtime at the Wells Fargo Center.

Jake Voracek ended an exhausting shift by hustling down the ice and depositing center Claude Giroux's pass behind Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek to give the Flyers the win 1:41 into overtime.

The Flyers sent the game into overtime when defenseman Mark Streit scored with 1:04 remaining in regulation. Chris VandeVelde and Roman Lyubimov also scored for the Flyers.

Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin and Andreas Athanasiou scored for the Red Wings.

Penguins 5, Ducks 1

Kris Letang had a goal and an assist in his first game in two weeks as Pittsburgh routed Anaheim at the Honda Center.

Evgeni Malkin scored his sixth goal of the season, Sidney Crosby had an assist for his sixth point in four games and goalie Matt Murray stopped 32 shots in his season debut for the Penguins, who earned their fourth consecutive victory and their fifth in six games.

Matt Cullen and Bryan Rust also scored for the Penguins.

John Gibson allowed a season-high five goals while making 29 saves, and Cam Fowler scored the only goal for the Ducks.
