Carter Scores Twice in Flyers' Win Over Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist, and rookie Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves in the Philadelphia Flyers' 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

Nikolay Zherdev and Scott Hartnell added goals, and Claude Giroux had four assists for the Flyers in the only regular-season rematch of last year's Stanley Cup Finals.

The 22-year-old Bobrovsky lost a bid for his first career shutout at 6:49 of the third period when Marian Hossa scored on a penalty shot. Philadelphia improved to a league-leading 69 points and is 9-2-0 in its last 11.

Defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago lost in regulation for the first time since Jan. 5 and had been on a 5-0-1 roll.

Chicago rookie Corey Crawford finished with 30 saves.
