DETROIT (AP) — Claude Giroux scored in a shootout and in regulation, lifting the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.

Jakub Voracek also scored in the shootout and Michal Neuvirth denied two Detroit shooters.

Pavel Datsyuk was the only Red Wing to get the puck past Neuvirth in one-on-one duels. Neuvirth stopped 29 shots before the shootout.

Giroux pulled Philadelphia into a 1-all tie early in the third.

Detroit’s Brendan Smith was called for hooking with 4.8 seconds left in regulation. The Flyers had a goal waved off after the ensuing faceoff because a leaping Wayne Simmonds was called for goalie interference.
