FLYERS 4, RED WINGS 3, OT

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Mark Streit tied it with 1:02 left in regulation and Jakub Voracek scored in overtime to lift Philadelphia past Detroit.

PENGUINS 5, DUCKS 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Kris Letang scored a power-play goal and had an assist in his return from an upper-body injury, Matthew Murray stopped 32 shots in his season debut, and the Penguins defeated the Ducks.

Patrick Hornqvist, Bryan Rust, Matt Cullen and Evgeni Malkin also scored for the Penguins, who improved to 7-2-1 despite not having Murray to start the season after breaking his hand during the World Cup of Hockey.

Malkin put the Penguins ahead 7:41 into the first period, scoring his sixth goal of the season.
