Richards, who centered Danny Briere and James van Riemsdyk, liked the new lines.

"Sometimes, you just need a little shake-up to get things going," he said. "Our forecheck was great tonight, which it wasn't for the last five or six games."

"Every line seemed to be clicking," said Briere, who had a goal and an assist - and a gash above his lip, courtesy of Drew Doughty's stick.

Leighton was shaky in his first start of the season, but Richards (two goals, two assists) led an attack that produced the Flyers' highest output since an 8-7 loss to Tampa Bay on Nov. 18.

"It wasn't our best game, but sometimes you need to win ugly to get going," Briere said.

After a poor first 40 minutes, Leighton was much sharper in the final period.

"When you're off for a long period of time - and you're coming off surgery - and you step back into the National Hockey League, you're probably going to have to feel your way around a little bit," Laviolette said. "It makes it tough on a goaltender. It was good for him to get through it and get some work."

"You couldn't get it to look that way in a movie if you took fifty takes," Al Michaels.

"He's a winner, he's a winner, he's a winner. You won the Kentucky Derby."
