RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Simon Gagne had two goals and an assist to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to their sixth straight victory, 3-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night.

Matt Carle scored the go-ahead goal with just under 18 minutes left for the Flyers, who are on their longest winning streak in more than three years.

Gagne started the decisive sequence by leading an odd-man rush during a 4-on-4 play. He slipped the puck to Carle during Philadelphia’s 3-on-1 break, and the defenseman put the Flyers up 2-1 by beating Cam Ward high to his glove side for his second goal.
