PHILADELPHIA — Wayne Simmonds and Erik Bustafsson scored goals late in the third period to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

The Flyers were 1-11 when trailing after two periods.

Trailing 3-2, Simmonds tipped in the puck from the crease for the tying goal. Less than 2 minutes later, Bustafsson's pass for Matt Read went off a defenseman and into the net past a stunned Carey Price for his 10th goal and a 4-3 lead.

Jakub Voracek scored an empty-netter with 39 seconds left.
