PHILADELPHIA (AP) - David Aebischer stopped 27 shots, and Michael Ryder and Alex Kovalev scored goals to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.

The Canadiens only needed regulation time to put this one away after opening the season with two straight shootouts. They split those, and now head home with two victories on their trip.

Montreal owes this one to Aebischer, simply stellar in earning his second win of the season. The Flyers couldn't slip one past on the power play, wasting all eight chances, including an 0-for-4 effort in the first period.

The Flyers trailed 2-0 going into the third, but R.J. Umberger scored nearly two minutes into the period to energize the crowd. It had no impact on Aebischer. He stopped 13 shots in the third and kept the Flyers winless at home this season (0-1-1).

Fittingly, the Flyers came up empty playing the final 1:53 on a power play. Chris Higgins added a short-handed, empty-netter in the final seconds.
