Updated Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 6:36am
Danny Briere scored 1:47 into overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.
Jakub Voracek, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn also scored for Philadelphia, which went 3-0-1 on a four-game homestand.
Joe Corvo scored the tying goal in the third period, and Jiri Tlusty and Jeff Skinner also had goals for the Hurricanes, who had won two in a row.
Briere skated down the left side, made a move around the circle and fired a shot that hit the far post and trickled past goalie Cam Ward.
The game went to overtime because Ward stoned Read on a point-blank shot at the end of regulation.
The Flyers have gone 24-4-4 against the Hurricanes since Nov. 28, 2003.
Philadelphia is 5-6-1 at the quarter point of the lockout-shortened 48-game schedule. Carolina fell to 5-4-1.
