PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Nikolay Zherdev's two goals and Brian Boucher's 24 stops Saturday lifted the Philadelphia Flyers to their fifth straight win, 4-1 over the New York Rangers.

Zherdev got the first goal of the game midway through the second period when Mike Richards hit him with a long pass as he was stepping out of the penalty box. Zherdev skated in alone, deked a forehand and then delivered a backhand shot past Henrik Lundqvist.

The Flyers' right wing also scored with five minutes remaining to ice the victory, which allowed Philadelphia (21-7-5) to retain the NHL's best record.

Andreas Nodl and Ville Leino also scored and Boucher turned aside 24-of-25 shots for the victors.

Derek Stepan scored a third-period goal and Lundqvist ended the day making 35-of-39 saves in the Rangers' setback.
