PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Kimmo Timonen had a goal and two assists, Steve Mason made 32 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2 Tuesday night.

Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier, Wayne Simmonds and Adam Hall also scored for Philadelphia, which is 4-0-1 in its last five games after a 4-10-1 start.

Clarke MacArthur and Kyle Turris both had a power-play goal for the Senators, who have lost two in a row.

Timonen and Simmonds scored 23 seconds apart to snap a 2-all tie in the third period.

First, Timonen got his first goal of the season on a nifty move to give the Flyers a 3-2 lead. He skated in from the left side and stuffed a backhander past Robin Lehner.

Simmonds then scored on a turnaround slap shot from the slot, and Mason stoned Turris on a penalty shot with 5:06 left to preserve the two-goal cushion.
