PHILADELPHIA -- The Flyers had six days to stew over owning the NHLs worst record, with just two points and one win through eight games. Jim Ritcher Jersey Retro . Coming off their longest layoff of the season, Philadelphia had to shake off a little rust early, but it might have been the Flyers fresh legs that allowed them to finally finish off the slumping New York Rangers in the third period. Braydon Coburn broke a tie early in the final frame, and Steve Mason made the lead stand up as the Flyers beat the Rangers 2-1 on Thursday night. Entering the game, the Flyers had been outscored 12-2 in the third. Still, they allowed 10 shots and needed Mason to be perfect to preserve the victory. "When you have a one-goal lead, thats what you have to be, right?" Mason said. "Its part of the position. The guys fought really hard. We were only rewarded with two goals, but this was a much better effort." Matt Read scored a short-handed goal and added an assist, and Mason made 30 saves for Philadelphia (2-7), which snapped a four-game losing streak. The Flyers are still off to their worst start through nine games. "This is a big win against a big rival of ours," Mason said. "Getting the two points here and hopefully being able to build off that is something we need to do and start getting ourselves out of this hole." In place of injured regular Henrik Lundqvist, New Yorks Cam Talbot was solid in his NHL debut and made 25 saves. One of his best stops came less than three minutes in on a point-blank shot in the middle from Sean Couturier. "That first save was big, just to kind of feel the puck," Talbot said. "Its a big confidence boost making the first save, obviously, and I shouldve made the rest after that." Despite the rookies strong effort, the Rangers (2-6) lost for the fifth time in six games. New York has one game left on its season-starting, nine-game road trip before its home opener on Monday. The Rangers, who got a goal from Brad Richards, thought they had gotten even at 2, but a video replay determined that J.T. Miller kicked the puck into the net. "I thought we stopped playing a little in the third, just with the puck, playing a little bit too cautious," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "But we kind of picked it up again, and we were OK." On the winning goal, Philadelphias Wayne Simmonds obstructed Talbots view on Coburns slap shot. The defenceman beat Talbot stick-side at 3:33 of the third for his second goal of the season. "We want to try to put as many pucks as we can at the net, and we have guys like Wayne, who is great at screening the goalie and cause havoc in there," Coburn said. "As long as you can get the puck through, things can happen." Miller put a rebound past Mason just minutes later during a power play, but the goal was disallowed. "I knew right away that he kicked it," Mason said. Read gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead 10:53 into the game with Philadelphias first short-handed goal this season. Read raced ahead after New York turned over the puck at the Philadelphia blue line. He kept the puck instead of passing to Couturier and scored with a shot between Talbots pads for his first goal of the season. "I was lucky to get a lucky bounce there and get kind of a half breakaway," Read said. "You got to have a shoot-first mentality if you want to score more than two goals a game, and thats something our whole team has to work on." The Rangers tied it with 1:04 left in the first when Richards snapped a quick bad-angle shot from the left end of the goal line that deflected off Coburns leg and slipped past Mason. Chris Kreider and John Moore earned assists on Richards fifth goal. New Yorks Benoit Pouliot was given a major penalty for boarding Philadelphias Max Talbot face-first into the boards in front of the Rangers bench and was ejected from the game with three minutes left in the second period. Philadelphia couldnt capitalize on the lengthy power play that stretched into the third period. The Flyers went 0 for 4 overall on the power play, and are 3 for 37 this season.

Bud Cooper Jersey Retro .C. -- Authorities say the brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- C.J. Wilson doesnt throw a complete game very often. And both times he has, its been against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Los Angeles Angels left-hander scattered five hits in his second career shutout and Grant Green homered in a 6-0 victory Saturday night. Wilson threw 127 pitches, struck out five and escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh by inducing his third double-play grounder of the game. "I happened to throw a lot of pitches because I can manipulate my mechanics to take stress off here and there, try to change speeds and not throw every pitch as hard as I can," Wilson said. "I was throwing the ball harder in the eighth and ninth than I was in the sixth and seventh. You reserve a little bit in the tank, and then youre able to kind of let it loose." Two seasons ago, the Angels built an 8-0 lead for Wilson against Tampa Bay before he allowed seven runs in the fifth inning and ended up with a no-decision as the Rays won 10-8 at Angel Stadium. This time, there would be no comeback. "Theyre a weird team," Wilson said. "They swing the bats and theyre very aggressive -- but sometimes when theyre ahead in the count, they wont chase anything. So you have to throw really, really good strikes. "The guy that hits me really well is Ben Zobrist, and hes not in the lineup (because of a dislocated thumb), so I was a little excited about that. Ive made some bad pitches to him over the years. (Evan) Longoria hit a home run off me a couple of years ago -- and Im still chapped about that. So you remember some of the successes and failures against the individual guys." The two-time All-Star lefty has made 80 starts since his previous shutout and complete game, which was at Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Sept. 6, 2011, while pitching for Texas. The former Rangers reliever was converted into a starter in 2010, and has gone the distance seven times in 149 career starts. "Id been campaigning for that for two years," Wilson said. "Id been knocking on the door and it finally opened, so I felt like I broke through. As a starter, youve got to be committed to being physically fit and also mentally prepared." Wilson (5-3), who came in leading the majors with 116.3 pitches per start, threw just 75 through the first six innings before singles by Longoria and Yunel Escobar and a walk to Logan Forsythe loaded the bases with one out in the seventh. But Rays RBI leader James Loney grounded into a double play on the next pitch. "I made a couple of pitches with guys on base to get out of jams, aand that was huge," Wilson said. Nike Cheap Jerseys. "But the defence really bailed me out more than anything. They made some really good plays behind me. And the offence gave me six runs to work with, which is plenty -- especially when its in the first three innings like that." Cesar Ramos (1-3) lasted only 35 pitches, getting charged with four runs and four hits through 1 1-3 innings in his seventh start since he was inserted into the rotation to replace the injured Matt Moore. Howie Kendrick, who entered with a .363 career average against Tampa Bay, opened the scoring in the first with an RBI single and Erick Aybar hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly two batters later. In the second, Ramos plunked No. 9 hitter Luis Jimenez just below the left knee with a pitch that bounced on the grass first. Collin Cowgill followed with a sharp single to the right of shortstop Escobar and continued to second on rookie centre fielder Kevin Kiermaiers throw to third. Manager Joe Maddon lifted Ramos at that point and brought in Brandon Gomes, who gave up a sacrifice fly to Mike Trout and an opposite-field ground-rule double by Albert Pujols that landed just inside the right field line. It was Pujols 535th career double, breaking a tie with Lou Gehrig for 34th place. It also ended an RBI drought of nine games and 39 at-bats by the two-time NL MVP since his run-scoring single against the Yankees Shawn Kelley on May 6 at Angel Stadium. "The bounced hit batter, I was kind of concerned about that -- and I thought it was really important to keep it where it was," Maddon said. "In general, we just have not been hitting lefties well. And if you look at Wilsons overall numbers against the guys in this particular lineup, I didnt see us scoring a whole lot of runs against him." Green, who came to the Angels last July in a trade that sent Alberto Callaspo to Oakland, made it 6-0 in the third with his homer to left-centre after a two-out double by Chris Iannetta. Green has two home runs in 174 career at-bats. The other one came on Sept. 2, 2013, a solo shot against Tampa Bays Josh Lueke at Angel Stadium as a pinch-hitter for Aybar. NOTES: Lueke was brought in to face Trout with the bases loaded in the sixth and struck him out. He then retired Pujols on a fielders choice grounder to short for the third out. ... Kiermaier, who was recalled from Triple-A Durham after CF Desmond Jennings went on the bereavement list following Friday nights loss, singled in the sixth for his first major league hit. ' ' '
