PHILADELPHIA — Patrice Bergeron scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and also tallied in the shootout to help the Boston Bruins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.


The Bruins have won nine straight road games, a single-season club record.


Reilly Smith, the fifth Boston shooter, clinched the victory in the shootout for the Bruins, who ended March 15-1-1.


Vincent Lecavalier scored twice for the Flyers, including the game-tying goal with 25 seconds left in regulation. Lecavalier’s first goal was the 400th of his career.


Kimmo Timonen scored for Philadelphia, which has lost three of four to remain in third place in the Metropolitan Division.


Andrej Meszaros and Zdeno Chara also scored for the Bruins.


Bergeron opened the shootout by scoring for the Bruins and Claude Giroux, Philadelphia’s second shooter, tied it. But no other Flyers shooter scored.


The Bruins’ last road setback came in overtime Feb. 26 at Buffalo, and they haven’t lost in regulation since a Jan. 9 defeat at Los Angeles.


Lecavalier scored his second goal with 25 seconds left. With goalie Steve Mason on the bench, Philadelphia pressed into the Boston zone. Johnny Boychuk had a chance to clear the zone, but the puck bounced over his stick on a backhand clearing attempt and went right to Jakub Voracek.


Penguins 4, Blackhawks 1


PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby had two goals in the final five minutes, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a victory over the injury-riddled Chicago Blackhawks.


Already playing without Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks lost captain Jonathan Toews to an upper-body injury in the second period. Toews was hit hard by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik and was holding his left arm on the bench before heading down the runway.


James Neal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Penguins, who won their second straight and snapped a three-game home losing streak.


Red Wings 3, Lightning 2


DETROIT — David Legwand had a goal and an assist, and the Detroit Red Wings held off the Tampa Bay Lightning to move into seventh place in the Eastern Conference.


Joakim Andersson and Gustav Nyquist also scored for Detroit, and Jonas Gustavsson stopped 26 shots.


Valtteri Filppula and Sami Salo scored for Tampa Bay and Ben Bishop made 27 saves.


Legwand assisted on Nyquist’s goal that gave Detroit a 2-1 lead with 4:36 remaining in the first.


Legwand made it 3-1 on a power-play score with 3:24 left in the second period, tipping in Johan Franzen’s shot for his 13th goal.


Salo scored his fourth goal to pull Tampa Bay within 3-2 with 4:29 left in the third.


Senators 6, Flames 3


OTTAWA, Ontario — Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris had two goals apiece to lead the Ottawa Senators to a victory over the Calgary Flames.


Jared Cowen gave Ottawa a lift with a tiebreaking goal on a wrist shot 1:12 into the third period, and Clarke MacArthur made it 5-3 with a tip-in at 12:22. Turris then scored his 25th goal into an empty net.


Robin Lehner made 37 saves as the Senators (31-29-14) won back-to-back games on home ice for the first time since they won three straight in late December and early January.


Matt Stajan, Paul Byron and Sean Monahan scored for the Flames (31-37-7), and Karri Ramo made 31 saves.
