PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Del Zotto's short-handed goal 1:19 into the third period lifted the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Matt Read, Michael Raffl and Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers, who snapped a two-game losing streak while cooling off the Rangers.

J.T. Miller and John Moore tallied for New York, which lost in regulation for the first time in 11 games (7-1-3) and had a five-game, road-winning streak snapped.

Del Zotto netted the go-ahead goal when Sean Couturier sent a cross-ice pass to him for a wrist shot from a sharp angle over goalie Cam Talbot's glove.
