Flyers end skid, edge Rangers, 2-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Braydon Coburn broke a tie early in the third period, and Steve Mason made the lead stand up as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the New York Rangers 2-1 on Thursday night for their second win of the season.

Matt Read scored a short-handed goal and added an assist, and Mason made 30 saves for Philadelphia (2-7), which snapped a four-game losing streak. The Flyers are still off to their worst start through nine games.

New York's Cam Talbot was solid in net in his NHL debut, making 25 saves in place of injured regular Henrik Lundqvist, but the Rangers (2-6) lost for the fifth time in six games. They have one game left on their season-starting, nine-game road trip before hosting their home opener on Monday.

The Rangers, who got a goal from Brad Richards, thought they had gotten even at 2, but a video replay determined that J.T. Miller kicked the puck into the net.

On the winning goal, Philadelphia's Wayne Simmonds obstructed Talbot's view on Coburn's slap shot. The defenseman beat Talbot stick-side at 3:33 of the third for his second goal of the season.

Miller put a rebound past Mason just minutes later during a power play, but the goal was disallowed.

Read gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead 10:53 into the game with Philadelphia's first short-handed goal this season.

Read raced ahead after New York turned over the puck at the Philadelphia blue line. He kept the puck instead of passing to Sean Couturier and scored with a shot between Talbot's pads for his first goal of the season.

The Rangers tied it with 1:04 left in the first when Richards snapped a quick ban-angle shot from the left end of the goal line that deflected off Coburn's leg and slipped past Mason. Chris Kreider and John Moore earned assists on Richards' fifth goal.

New York's Benoit Pouliot was given a major penalty for boarding Philadelphia's Max Talbot face-first into the boards in front of the Rangers bench and was ejected from the game with three minutes left in the second period.

Philadelphia couldn't capitalize on the lengthy power play that stretched into the third period. The Flyers went 0 for 4 overall on the power play, and are 3 for 37 this season.

NOTES: Both teams entered with an NHL-low 11 goals. ... On Wednesday, Philadelphia loaned C Kris Newbury to AHL Adirondack to make room on the roster for Vincent Lecavalier, who returned from injury. ... The Rangers recalled G Jason Missiaen from AHL Hartford to serve as Talbot's backup. Lundqvist is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. ... The Flyers travel to face the New York Islanders on Saturday. ... The Rangers will play at Detroit on Saturday before hosting Montreal on Monday.
