PHILADELPHIA -- John LeClair's goal with 2:27 left lifted the Flyers to their third straight tie, 2-2 with the Bruins.

Joe Thornton and P.J. Axelsson each scored for Boston, unbeaten in its past five (4-0-1).

Despite failing to re-sign Bill Guerin, the NHL's No. 2 goal-scorer last season, and goaltender Byron Dafoe, the Bruins (11-2-3-1) are tied with Dallas for most points with 26.

Keith Primeau set up the tying goal by winning a faceoff. The puck went to Dennis Seidenberg, who took a slap shot from the right circle. LeClair stuffed the rebound past goaltender John Grahame for his ninth goal.

WILD 1, CAPITALS 0: Dwayne Roloson made 17 saves for his first shutout this season and Pascal Dupuis scored the only goal for host Minnesota. Dupuis scored at 6:37 of the second period, helping the Wild snap a season-worst three-game winless streak.

RED WINGS 2, MAPLE LEAFS 1: Backup Manny Legace made 30 saves in place of Curtis Joseph as visiting Detroit won its fourth straight. Joseph asked to start against his former team, but coach Dave Lewis said no.

CANADIENS 3, DEVILS 1: Donald Audette got his first goal in nearly a year, and Yanic Perreault scored twice to lead host Montreal. Audette, with no goals since Nov. 24, opened the scoring 4:01 into the game for his first point in 13 games this season.

SHARKS 7, PANTHERS 3: Scott Thornton had two goals and an assist, and Brad Stuart scored his first goal this season for visiting San Jose.

SENATORS 4, SABRES 1: Todd White scored twice as host Ottawa stretched Buffalo's winless streak to 11 games.

BLUE JACKETS 1, PREDATORS 1: Columbus' Geoff Sanderson and host Nashville's David Legwand scored first-period goals. Sanderson has scored a goal in six straight games to set a team record.

ISLANDERS 3, PENGUINS 2: Adrian Aucoin put visiting New York ahead late in the first period on its only successful power play, and goalie Chris Osgood stopped 33 of 35 shots.

KINGS 4, OILERS 1: Michael Cammalleri scored his first NHL goal, one of four unanswered goals by visiting Los Angeles.

BLACKHAWKS: Left wing Bob Probert will work as a radio broadcaster for the team the rest of the season and may return as a player next season. The 37-year-old has a groin injury.

FLAMES: Calgary will receive nearly $5-million in assistance from the league despite failing to sell the required 13,000 season tickets to receive aid. The NHL's $4.7-million subsidy is given to Canadian teams struggling because of the weak Canadian dollar.

SABRES: Defenseman Jason Woolley agreed to take a $125,000 pay cut, setting up a likely trade to Detroit.
