The Philadelphia Flyers, one of the NHL’s offensive-challenged teams for most of the season, have suddenly found their scoring touch.

The Nashville Predators, on the other hand, won a game Thursday because their goalie, Juuse Saros, refused to allow Carolina’s offensive onslaught to do much damage. Saros, who was named an All-Star Thursday, had a franchise-record 64 saves. Sixty four.

And the Pittsburgh Penguins, losers of six in a row, and defending champion Colorado Avalanche, are in free fall. The Avs have dropped five straight.
