NHL: Philadelphia 3, Colorado 1

Feb. 6, 2014 at 10:20 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Steve Mason took a shutout deep into the contest Thursday and made 38 saves in boosting Philadelphia to a 3-1 victory over Colorado.

The Flyers won their third straight and moved within a point of the New York Rangers for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Mason did not allow a goal until Nathan MacKinnon put one past him with just 2:50 to play. That cut the Colorado deficit to 2-1, but Claude Giroux wrapped up the Philadelphia win by scoring into an empty net with 20 seconds remaining.

The Avalanche lost their second in a row.

Mark Streit and Michael Raffl scored for Philadelphia with Streit's goal coming on the power play 6:21 into the second period.

Semyon Varlamov gave up two goals on 34 shots for Colorado.
