Philadelphia • Matt Read and Claude Giroux both scored goals in the shootout to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Read beat Johan Hedberg on the first shot and New Jersey's Ilya Kovalchuk matched him. Giroux scored the second shootout goal, and David Clarkson and Patrik Elias both failed in their attempts against Ilya Bryzgalov.

The slumping Flyers badly need this win following a 5-2 loss to the Devils on Wednesday. The Flyers are still on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Max Talbot scored in regulation for the Flyers and Clarkson had a goal for the Devils.

Coyotes sign Ekman-Larrson • Phoenix signed defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson to a six-year contract. The 21-year-old is considered Phoenix's top defenseman after the Coyotes took him with the sixth overall pick of the 2009 draft. He played in all 82 games last season, setting career highs with 13 goals and 19 assists.
