Fresh from a victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday, the Philadelphia Flyers welcome in the Montreal Canadiens to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday.

Brayden Schenn struck in overtime to give the visitors the 3-2 triumph at the Prudential Center in Newark as the Flyers concluded an impressive six-game road swing with their fifth win of the trip. Winners of six of seven overall, Philadelphia has surged into second place in the Metropolitan Division as the teams jockey for position behind the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was another day and another victory for the Penguins who defeated the Vancouver Canucks 5-4 in a shootout at the Rogers Arena. Sidney Crosby recorded his 24th goal of the campaign with under a minute to play in regulation to tie the proceedings and then would score the only goal in the shootout as Pittsburgh took maximum points on the night. Both sides are back on the ice on Friday when the Penguins head to Edmonton while the Canucks welcome in the St. Louis Blues.

In a battle of Division leaders out west the Boston Bruins came up short in Anaheim as they fell 5-2 to the Ducks. The Atlantic Division pace setters saw Anaheim score three times in the second period and were never able to recover from the set back to allow the Tampa Bay Lightning to close to within two points in the standings. Martin St. Louis scored twice in the third period as the Lightning doubled up the Jets at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.

The Bruins areĀ 10.00 to win the Stanley Cup, while theĀ Ducks can be backed at 7.50.
