MONTREAL (AP) Petr Mrazek went from a backup goaltender on a losing team to a starting job for a playoff contender when Detroit traded him to Philadelphia. And he understands the pressure that comes with his new role.Mrazek stopped 28 shots for his fourth shutout this season Mikko Rantanen Jersey , and Sean Couturier scored in the sixth round of the shootout to give the Flyers a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.Mrazek is 3-0-0 since the trade, and the Flyers have won a season-best six straight overall.”We got two points tonight against a team that’s out of the playoffs. They can play loose,” Mrazek said. ”It was hard for us to play them. But we stuck together and we played really well.”Every shutout is special for a goaltender but I’d rather take the win.”Philadelphia moved into the top spot in the Metropolitan Division over Washington, which lost at Columbus. The Flyers have earned points in 12 straight games (10-0-2).Backup goalie Charlie Lindgren made 33 saves for Montreal, which has lost eight of nine. The Canadiens have been shut out nine times this year, tying a franchise record.Both teams scored one goal after five shootout rounds before Couturier beat Lindgren in the sixth.Lindgren got credit for his second shutout in his 12th career game.”He’s one of those guys who right from the get-go, he’s come in here and made saves,” Brendan Gallagher said of Lindgren. ”He has a tendency of making big saves at crucial times in games to keep you in it. You appreciate that because it bails you out at times.”Definitely a good player.”The Flyers had a few chances to win before the shootout.Travis Konecny hit the post in overtime before Lindgren robbed captain Claude Giroux on the doorstep with 20 seconds remaining in the extra frame. The Flyers also failed to capitalize on a power play late in the third period.”It was definitely a challenging game and it made it a little bit fun,” Konecny said. ”(Lindgren) played real good tonight. It was harder for us because we’ve never played against him. He stood on his head tonight.”These teams met six days ago, with Philadelphia coming out on top 3-2 in overtime. Montreal’s Carey Price suffered a concussion in that game when he took a shot to the mask.Lindgren did what he could to prevent another loss.The 24-year-old saved a shot by Couturier with his mask late in the first period. In the second, Oskar Lindblom charged hard to the net but Lindgren stood his ground to keep the shot out.Lindgren set the tone for the third period with a toe save on Konecny’s wrist shot.NOTES: The Canadiens and Flyers were relatively quiet before Monday’s NHL trade deadline.

Christian Dvorak, Jakob Chychrun, Kevin Connauton and Jordan Martinook also scored, Max Domi had three assists, and Antti Raanta made 31 saves.”That is a learning experience,” Tocchet said. ”You are having a tough start, don’t make it a tough 60 minutes. I thought the last 30 minutes some guys really dug in there and started playing well.”Arizona also rallied to beat Minnesota the last time they played, scoring the final four goals in a 4-3 overtime victory in St. Paul on Feb. 8.”Once they got they got that first goal Patrick Roy Jersey , their game completely changed,” Parise said. ”They got life. They got energy. … They kind of did what they did last time to us. They’re a fast team.”Parise, Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen scored for the Wild, and Alex Stalock stopped 21 shots.Forty-nine seconds after Koivu tied it at 2 on a power play, Panik one-timed Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s pass past Stalock’s glove from the right faceoff circle for his first goal with the Coyotes.Connauton made it 4-2 with 7:56 to go, also beating Stalock to the glove side from the right faceoff circle.Cullen cut it to one , poking the puck between Raanta’s legs with 6:47 left.Parise opened the scoring with 4:24 left in the first period, snapping a wrist shot past Raanta’s glove off a slick passing play with Joel Eriksson Ek and Nino Niederreiter.
