NHL: Philadelphia 2, N.Y. Islanders 1

Jan. 30, 2010 at 5:43 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Scott Hartnell scored the winning goal during a first-period power play Saturday in a "chippy" game Philadelphia won 2-1 over the New York Islanders.

Danny Briere got the Flyers' opening goal and Josh Bailey got the Islanders' lone tally in the second period.

Ray Emery made 31 saves for Philadelphia, which has beaten the Islanders 14 times in a row at home. Dwayne Roloson had 30 stops for New York, which has lost four straight.

"It's always fun to score a goal, that is what hockey is about," Hartnell said. "Everyone was very emotional here today. It was kind of a chippy game. A lot of stuff after the whistle, but we got two points and that's what we needed."
