With Claude Giroux at the helm, the Flyers earned their seventh victory of the season after a 7-0 thrashing of the New York Islanders (see story).

The Flyers' penalty-kill unit continued its strong play this season on Monday, holding the Islanders scoreless in five power-play attempts (see story).

Here's a look at some other NHL action.

Senators top Devils in SO
NEWARK, N.J. -- Jakob Silfverberg beat Martin Brodeur to his stick side in the shootout and goalie Ben Bishop turned aside 30 shots for his first victory of the season, giving the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

Silfverberg, who also had an assist on the Senators' regulation goal, skated in on Brodeur in the shootout and fired a right-handed wrist shot which caught the NHL's all-time wins leader by surprise. When Bishop stopped former Senator Bobby Butler on the Devils' third shootout attempt, Ottawa (8-6-2) had its third road win of the season.

Stephen Gionta scored his second goal of the season in the opening minutes of the game and Brodeur made 29 saves for New Jersey.

Daniel Alfredsson scored in the third period for Ottawa (see full recap).

Avalanche take down Predators
DENVER -- Paul Stastny and Jamie McGinn scored goals 13 seconds apart and the Colorado Avalanche snapped a nine-game losing streak to Nashville with a 6-5 win over the Predators in a Monday matinee.

The Predators pulled their goalie and Shea Weber scored with 1:18 left to make it a one-goal game, the only score of the final period.

Matt Duchene had a goal and two assists in helping the Avalanche to a rare win over the Predators, who had outscored Colorado 34-14 while sweeping the season series each of the past two years.

The Predators had pulled to 4-3 on Colin Wilson's goal before the double-whammy by Stastny and McGinn restored Colorado's cushion and forced Nashville coach Barry Trotz to summon Pekka Rinne, who is 6-1-1 in his past eight starts, to the net with 6 minutes left in the second period (see full recap).
