Recap: Philadelphia vs. NY Rangers

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Braydon Coburn's goal 3:33 into the third period got the Philadelphia Flyers back in the win column via a 2-1 decision over the New York Rangers at Wells Fargo Center.

Steve Mason stopped 30-of-31 shots, including all 10 he faced in the final period, to help the Flyers halt a four-game losing streak and prevail for only the second time in nine outings this season. Matt Read assisted on Coburn's game-winner and tallied a shorthanded goal earlier in the contest.

Brad Richards scored the only marker for New York, which dropped its second in a row and fell to 2-6-0 on its season-opening nine-game road trip. Cameron Talbot, making his NHL debut with Henrik Lundqvist out with an undisclosed injury, recorded 25 saves in defeat.

Philadelphia failed on a previous opportunity to break the 1-1 stalemate, a five-minute power play that overlapped the second and third periods that was awarded by a boarding penalty to New York's Benoit Pouliot for checking the Flyers' Maxime Talbot face-first into the boards.

Not long after the expiration of the extended man-advantage, however, Coburn drilled a shot from near the blue line that rocketed past Cameron Talbot with Philadelphia's Wayne Simmonds setting a screen in front.

"We've got guys like Wayne screening the goalie and causing havoc in there, so you know as long as you can get the pucks through, things can happen," said Coburn afterward.

The Rangers nearly had the equalizer just over two minutes after Coburn's goal. With Flyers captain Claude Giroux in the box for a hooking call, New York's Brian Boyle sent a pass into the crease that caromed off Mason's stick and struck the Rangers' J.T. Miller's right skate before crossing the goal line. However, the score was disallowed after a booth review declared that Miller kicked in the puck.

"Obviously [the officials] saw something that I didn't, but it happens," said Miller. "It's a kicking motion; it happens all the time. I think it could have went either way."

Mason, who turned aside 12 chances during a flawless second period, later withstood a Rangers' offensive in the final minutes to protect the one-goal edge.

"Mason played great and made some big saves when we needed it," said Coburn.

Read got the slumping Flyers off to a good start midway through the opening period. With the Rangers on their first power play of the night, the Philadelphia forward stole the puck from Derick Brassard to create a breakaway chance that ended with Read firing a wrister through Cameron Talbot's pads for a 1-0 lead.

The Flyers stayed in front until late in the period, when Richards sent a bad- angle shot from the left corner that caught Mason off guard and went in with just 1:04 left in the frame.
