Haller Gives Flyers Ot Win

Article excerpt

Kevin Haller scored from the top of the faceoff circle with 30 seconds left in overtime, lifting the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers in a National Hockey League game Wednesday night in Miami.

Haller scored after a last-minute blitz by Philadelphia in which goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck negated four rapid-fire shots.

The puck seemed to be smothered by Florida's Scott Mellanby, but it squirted loose and Haller came up with it, beating Vanbiesbrouck on the glove side.

Lightning 2, Whalers 2: Defenseman Roman Hamrlik's power-play goal at 17:37 of the second period enabled Tampa Bay to extend its unbeaten streak to six games (5-0-1).
