Trevor Zegras scored two goals and Derek Grant added a goal and an assist for the visiting Anaheim Ducks in a 5-3 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.

Sonny Milano and Zach Aston-Reese also scored and Anthony Stolarz made 30 saves for the Ducks (29-32-12, 70 points), who had lost 13 of their previous 14 games. Jamie Drysdale and Andrej Sustr contributed two assists apiece.

Travis Sanheim, Ronnie Attard and Ivan Provorov scored, and Martin Jones made 29 saves for the Flyers (23-38-11, 57 points), who had won two of their previous three.

Zegras scored off a Grant assist to give Anaheim a 4-3 lead with 8:22 left in the third period. Zegras took the puck below the goal line, did a 360-degree spin, then sent a pass in front that ricocheted into the net off a Philadelphia player for his 20th goal of the season.

Grant then scored off a feed from Sustr to make it 5-3 with 5:27 left.

The Flyers scored two goals in the first 2:28 to snatch a 2-0 lead, but the Ducks came back with two goals in a 1:32 span early in the second period to tie the score 2-2.

Sanheim took a wrist shot from the top of the right circle and the puck slipped between the pads of Stolarz for a 1-0 lead at 1:39.

The Flyers then won a faceoff in the Anaheim zone and Attard's point shot got through to the net for his first NHL goal and a 2-0 lead at 2:28.

Milano slapped in a rebound off Jamie Drysdale's point shot to cut the lead to 2-1 at 3:06.

Aston-Reese then tied it 2-2 at 4:38 when he tipped in a shot from Adam Henrique.

Zegras gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead at 14:13 of the second period when he scored a power-play goal on a one-timer from the top of the right circle.

Anaheim outshot Philadelphia 17-4 in the second period, but the Flyers tied it 3-3 at 3:53 of the third after Provorov took a give-and-go pass from Nate Thompson and scored on a one-timer while coming through the slot.
