PHILADELPHIA -- Scott Hartnell was concerned he had broken his foot. Comprar Zapatillas Puma Baratas . He had been playing with pain for two weeks and wore a walking boot at a Flyers charity event over the weekend. But after getting cleared to play following a negative CT scan, he looked as good as he has all season. Hartnell and Claude Giroux each had three points, Steve Mason made 33 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the banged up Detroit Red Wings 5-0 Tuesday night. "We needed a big win, we needed two points," Hartnell said. "Were (about to go) on a really tough road trip against some big opponents out west and we needed to get our confidence back going into that trip." Adam Hall and Sean Couturier also scored for the Flyers, who snapped a four-game losing streak. The Flyers (26-22-6) won an eighth straight game at home against the Red Wings (23-19-11), a franchise best against Detroit, which has not won in Philadelphia since the 1997 Stanley Cup final. Mason turned in his best performance since signing a three-year extension with the Flyers last week. In the three previous games since inking the deal, Mason had allowed 11 goals and been pulled twice. "These games are building blocks," said Mason, who recorded his second shutout of the season and the 21st of his career. "Over the course of the season, youre going to have ups and downs, its just a matter of how you come out of it. This is a small step in a bigger picture and thats how Im going to look at it." Flyers coach Craig Berube shuffled his lines before the game, moving Hartnell up with Giroux and Jake Voracek. Hartnell scored the Flyers first two goals of the game and Giroux netted one in third. Each time Giroux or Hartnell scored, the other picked up an assist. "Hes pretty easy to play with," Hartnell said, referring to Giroux. "You get him the puck and youre going to get it back." Hartnell opened the scoring with a power-play goal at the 6:18 mark of the first period when he redirected Kimmo Timonens drive from the point and notched his second of the night 8:08 into the second period when he scored off a cross-ice pass from Giroux, who assisted on both of Hartnells goals. Timonen later left the game with a lower-body injury and did not return. The veteran defenceman will be reevaluated Tuesday but, when asked after the game, Berube said Timonen was "fine." The Red Wings arent nearly as lucky on the injury front. They played Tuesday night without three of their top forwards in Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Pavel Datsyuk. Franzen missed 16 games with a concussion and returned to action against the Florida Panthers on Sunday but is once again dealing with concussion symptoms. Zetterberg missed his third game with a bad back and Datsyuk his 11th with a lower-body injury. "We want to get our big guys back," Red Wings forward Drew Miller said. "A lot of the guys that are out right now are big leaders and guys we look to for scoring. But were not looking at that as an excuse. Weve got guys who can step and play." Starting in place of Jimmy Howard, who was back on the Detroit bench after missing three games with an injury of his own, Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson stopped 23 of 28 shots. In the second period, Detroits Luke Glendening, Kyle Quincey and Tomas Tatar all hit posts. Forward Riley Sheahan would have gotten the Red Wings on the board in the third, but his shot over the glove of Mason came after Flyers defenceman Nicklas Grossman dislodged the net, stopping play. Grossman was whistled for delay of game but Detroit, which came into Tuesday night with the leagues top-ranked road power play, but failed to score on its four man-advantages. "These are the times when you have to find a way, get a step," defenceman Niklas Kronwall said. "The power play has to be clicking. We have to find a way to get one goal. I thought we had good chances in the second period. (Quincey) had a grade-A chance right in the middle of the slot. I think (Tatar) had one off the crossbar. But the puck didnt go in, and we have to find a way to be a lot better."

And when I say, go wrong, its not going to be anything thats going to take me out of the race car. Its a matter of trying to make everything absolutely as comfortable as possible." ' ' '
