Detroit are unbeaten in three straight for the first time this season with one loss in their last five, but they blew a 2-0 lead heading into the third period, Howe (17) and D Roberts (3) with the goals, before Henderson (8) had them 3-2 up but they had to settle for a single point after Philadelphia's comeback. The Flyers are winless in three but had goals from Miszuk (3), Rochefort (12) and an unassisted game tying goal from Angotti (7) 18:20 into the final period.
Montreal make it three wins from four after jumping out to a 4-0 lead through Beliveau (6), G Tremblay (19) and two from Duff (11). The Minnesota North Stars have lost four of their last five, Cullen (25) and P MacDonald (11) scoring in a heated contest that saw a fight either side of G Tremblay's game winning goal.
