LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers know the importance of opening the season with a road victory.Wayne Simmonds scored two goals to lead Philadelphia to a 5-2 season-opening road win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.It was the Flyers’ third straight season-opening victory in a Pacific Division city. Philadelphia has earned at least a point in each of its last four season openers (3-0-1).Oskar Lindblom Adidas Marian Hossa Jersey , Robert Hagg and Scott Laughton also scored for the Flyers, one of seven NHL teams to win on the road during Thursday’s 10-game slate.“I think it’s tough sometimes when you open at your own rink,” Elliott said. “You have all the spectacles and the show, sometimes it takes away from your focus a little bit and the road team just has to come in and play (its) game.”And while the defending Western Conference champion Golden Knights’ scoring chances outweighed Philadelphia’s, 24-14, Flyers netminder Brian Elliott was outstanding in stopping 23 of the 25 shots he faced in front of an announced crowd of 18,555.Vegas’ Marc-Andre Fleury allowed five goals and stopped 11 of 16 shots before being replaced by Malcolm Subban with 9:49 left in the second period. Subban stopped all nine of the shots he saw.Vegas coach Gerard Gallant dispatched the notion about his team being distracted by the pre-game festivities, which included the raising of the Pacific Division and Western Conference championship banners.“I was excited and our players were excited to start at home tonight, it just didn’t go our way,” Gallant said. “I thought we played a real good 10 minutes to open the game up. We had a 1-0 lead and then (Shea) Theodore hit the crossbar, would have made it 2-0. After that they pretty well took over the game.”Jonathan Marchessault and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare were the only ones to score for Vegas Adidas Chris Wagner Jersey , as the Flyers dominated the neutral zone.“We kind of just wanted to counter-attack their speed, that’s the way they play,” said Simmonds, who led the Flyers with four shots and seven hits. “They have their D jumping the rush a lot of times, and we figured if we could bust the zone we could keep their D back. It worked to our advantage and we kept pucks in and we went in and we got them.”Marchessault’s shot from the left dot gave the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead early in the first period, but Lindblom tied the game after making a nice move around Fleury’s left pad and a backhand into an empty net.Simmonds pounced on a loose puck sitting on the goal line, and poked it into the net to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead late in the first period. His second goal made it 3-1 early in the second period when he slipped a shot under a sprawled out Fleury.Simmonds has five goals in his last two season-openers.Later in the second period, it was Mikhail Vorobyev, in his NHL debut, starting a rush with a stretch pass to James van Riemsdyk, who then fed Hagg Adidas Joakim Nordstrom Jersey , who beat Fleury with a wrist shot to the glove side. Just 1:06 later, Laughton deflected Radko Gudas‘ shot from the point to make it 5-1.Bellemare netted a short-handed goal to cut Philadelphia’s lead to 5-2 with 11:32 left in the game.This marked the first of two games in nine days between these clubs. Vegas will visit the Flyers on October 13 to wrap up a five-game road trip that begins Saturday night.NOTES: Only in Las Vegas will you find crooner Wayne Newton and rapper Lil Jon simultaneously dropping the ceremonial first puck together pregame. … With his two assists, Jakub Voracek reached 400 points for his career. … Claude Giroux’s assist on Simmonds’ second goal moved him past Bill Barber for third on the Flyers’ all-time list with 464.UP NEXT:Philadelphia: Visits Colorado on Saturday.Vegas: Visits Minnesota on Saturday. OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Paul Byron scored twice and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2 on Thursday night to sweep the home-and home series.Jeff Petry, Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw also scored, and Carey Price stopped 19 shots.“We just started skating,” Byron said. “They had a couple injuries so they were short-handed down the middle and we knew if we kept skating and kept pushing it was going to make it harder on them.”The Canadiens also beat the Senators 5-2 on Tuesday night in Montreal.“Both games the game slips away in that second period because of bad puck management,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. “It doesn’t matter who you play against. If you don’t manage the puck well it’s going to haunt you.”Mark Stone and Colin White scored for the Senators, and Craig Anderson stopped 38 shots. Ottawa’s Matt Duchene (lower body) and Bobby Ryan (upper body) left the game with injuries.“It’s unfortunate, but it happens to a lot of teams,” Ottawa’s Cody Ceci said.“A lot of guys had to play a lot of minutes tonight Timothy Liljegren Jersey Womens , but can’t use that as an excuse.”An unlucky bounce early in the third gave Montreal a 4-2 lead on Gallagher’s goal, and Byron added an empty-net goal for his second of the night.“We played a good road game against a team that’s been successful at home,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said. “It was about being ready to play hard and I thought we did that for the most part.”A couple defensive breakdowns by the Senators allowed the Canadiens to take a 3-2 lead into the third period.After Tom Pyatt failed to clear the puck, the Canadiens gained control with Philip Danault making a cross-ice pass to Byron.Shaw made it 3-1 with his 100th career goal, beating Anderson from in close. But the Senators cut the lead back to one with a power-play goal late in the period. Price made a great save on Ryan Dzingel, but White was right there for the rebound for his eighth of the season.Stone opened the scoring for the Senators midway through the period when he beat Price with a quick wrist shot.The Canadiens tied it 20 seconds later when Petry took a pass at the blue line and beat Anderson with a long wrist shot.NOTES: Ottawa remains without D Mark Borowiecki. He’s recovering from an upper-body injury. … Montreal improved to 14-10-5, and Ottawa dropped to 12-14-3.UP NEXTCanadiens: At Chicago on Sunday night.Senators: Host Pittsburgh on Saturday night.
