PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Steve Mason took a shutout into the final minute of the contest Thursday and finished with 20 saves to lead Philadelphia over Montreal 2-1.

Michael Raffi put the Flyers in front in the first period and Claude Giroux scored in the second.

Mason protected the 2-0 lead until Alex Galchenyuk beat him with a slap shot that came with 56 seconds left in regulation.

Montreal lost its second straight after winning four in a row. Carey Price stopped 25-of-27 shots in defeat.
