Claude Giroux scored a power-play goal for the slumping Flyers, who’ve lost four in a row. They’re 2-5-2 in their last nine games, tumbling from second place in the division to eighth in the East. It’s their worst stretch since a 1-7 start that saw coach Peter Laviolette fired three games into the season.

Steve Mason allowed four goals on 19 shots and was yanked for the second time in three starts since signing a contract extension last Saturday.

CAPITALS 5, CANADIENS 0

MONTREAL • Alex Ovechkin returned from an injury that sidelined him two games to start a four-goal second period as the Washington Capitals ended a seven-game winless run with a victory over the slumping Montreal Canadiens.

John Erskine, Jay Beagle and John Carlson also scored in the middle period as the Capitals, who had scored only three goals in their four previous games, dominated the first half of the game and then shut Montreal down.

The Canadiens have lost four in a row and five of six.

Casey Wellman, recalled Saturday from AHL Hershey, got his first goal of the season on a feed from Ovechkin on a 2-on-1 counterattack 8:38 into the third period.

Washington’s Braden Holtby improved his record against Montreal to 5-0-0 with four shutouts.
