PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne scored early in

the third period to lift the Philadelphia Flyers past the New

Jersey Devils, 4-2, on Monday night.

Carter scored his 40th goal and Gagne his 30th only 2:06 apart

to hand Martin Brodeur only his third loss in 12 games since

returning from biceps surgery.

The Flyers have won three straight behind goalie Martin Biron,

and got a goal and an assist from Danny Briere.

Brendan Shanahan and Jamie Langenbrunner scored for New Jersey,

which missed a chance to clinch a playoff spot.
