Quick made 21 saves, losing his shutout bid with 7:36 remaining when Joel Ward extended his goal-scoring streak to a career-best four games with his 22nd of the season.

Anze Kopitar scored at 14:09 of the first period for Los Angeles.

FLYERS 4, STARS 2

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Wayne Simmonds scored two goals and Philadelphia beat Dallas for its fourth straight win.

Mark Streit and Michael Raffl also scored for Philadelphia, which improved to 11-2-1 in its last 14 games while maintaining its hold on second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Jamie Benn scored twice for Dallas, which lost its fourth straight. The Stars began the day two points behind Phoenix for the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Simmonds scored his second of the game with 7:39 left to put Philadelphia ahead 3-1. Just 30 seconds later, Benn scored his second of the contest.

Raffl provided some insurance for Philadelphia by beating Thomas with a backhander on a breakaway with 3:12 to play.

SABRES 3, OILERS 1

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Cory Conacher had two goals and an assist, and Buffalo beat Edmonton to snap a seven-game losing streak.

Drew Stafford also scored for Buffalo, which had been outscored 21-6 during its skid.

Taylor Hall had Edmonton's goal as it ended a two-game win streak in a matchup of teams with the worst records in the NHL. The Oilers (25-37-9) dropped to 10-5-3 in their last 18 games, and are 11 points ahead of the Sabres (20-42-8).

Edmonton had numerous chances on the power play late in the first period before Justin Schultz and Hall connected for a man-advantage goal on Buffalo goalie Matt Hacket, who was making his first start of the season for the Sabres.

Conacher tied the score near the midpoint of the second period and then put them ahead early in the third.

COYOTES 2, PANTHERS 1

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Radim Vrbata and Antoine Vermette scored first-period goals and Phoenix held on to win its third in a row.
