Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Kimmo Timonen tied the game with 9.5 seconds left in regulation and assisted on Ruslan Fedotenko's game-winner Keith Magnuson Jersey in overtime, as the Philadelphia Flyers rallied past the Washington Capitals, 5-4.
Timonen had Kris Versteeg Jersey three assists for the Flyers, who have won two in a row and sit two points behind the New York Rangers and Islanders for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.
Claude Giroux had a goal and two assists for Philadelphia, which took two of three from Washington this season. Maxime Talbot and Matt Read also lit the lamp. Talbot left the game late in the second period with a lower-body injury.
Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves for the victors.
Marcus Johansson had a goal and an assist for the Capitals, who are four points behind the Winnipeg Jets for first place in the Southeast Division. Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Alex Ovechkin also lit the lamp.
The Marian Hossa Jersey Kings were dominating play on the ice, controlling the puck and outshooting Dallas 21-4 when Benn scored on the Stars' first shot of the second period to tie it at 1 at 13:16. Just 47 seconds after Lehtonen made a sparkling pad save on Richardson's point-blank wrister, Benn received a long, incisive pass from Alex Goligoski at the Los Angeles blue line, swooped around King defenseman Slava Voynov and in on a breakaway. Then, he slid a nifty backhand deke between Bernier's pads for his eighth goal of the season.
The Kings pushed right back, forcing Lehtonen to make big saves on Mike Richards' one-timer from the slot just 21 seconds later and on Anze Kopitar's wrister from the left face-off circle 27 seconds after that.
The Kings took a 1-0 lead on the first shift, thanks to a fortuitous bounce that resulted in Carter's 20th goal of the season. After Dustin Penner knocked Stephane Robidas off the puck in the left corner, Carter grabbed the puck and shoveled a harmless-looking backhander that re-directed off the skate of Dallas' Brenden Dillon and sailed over Lehtonen's shoulder just 25 seconds into the opening period.
