Flyers rally to beat Blackhawks

Chris Pronger scored with 2.1 seconds remaining to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks yesterday. The defenseman took a pass from Claude Giroux and beat a diving Cristobal Huet to the glove side to cap a flurry of scoring where all five goals were tallied in the final period ... Bryan Allen scored with 2:14 left in overtime to help the Florida Panthers rally from an early two-goal deficit to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2. After becoming the first team in NHL history to win three straight games in regulation when trailing after two periods, the Sharks found themselves on the other side of a late comeback.
