Barbashev, Quick help Golden Knights beat Canadiens 4-3
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ivan Barbashev scored his first two goals with Vegas and Jonathan Quick got his first victory with the Golden Knights in a 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.
Shea Theodore and Reilly Smith also scored for Vegas, which got its third straight home win. Quick, acquired from Columbus on Thursday — two days after he was traded from Los Angeles to the Blue Jackets — had 25 saves.
Mike Matheson, Alex Belzile and Rafael Harvey-Pinard scored for Montreal, which lost its third straight to finish a four-game trip. Jake Allen had 24 saves.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nicolas Deslauriers, Noah Cates and Scott Laughton scored goals and Carter Hart stopped 24 shots to lead Philadelphia.
The victory was a needed respite from the bubbling unrest surrounding the franchise.
Flyers fans have been fed up for years — the Wells Fargo Center is no longer one of the more intimidating arenas in the NHL — and anger reached its zenith this past week when general manager Chuck Fletcher declined to make any major deals at the deadline. James van Riemsdyk and Kevin Hayes were among the high-priced veterans that weren’t moved for any kind of prospects or draft picks.
David Perron scored for Detroit and Ville Husso had 34 saves.
HURRICANES 6, LIGHTNING 0
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Teuvo Teravainen had three goals to lead Carolina past Tampa Bay.

Frederik Andersen made 14 saves for his first shutout of the season and 24th of his career. Carolina went 4 for 5 on the power play.
Andrei Vasilevskiy had 32 saves for the Lightning, who lost their fifth straight (0-4-1) and were held without a shot on goal in the second period.
