PHILADELPHIA — James van Riemsdyk and Shayne Gostisbehere each scored a power-play goal and Claude Giroux had three assists in his return from a COVID-19 absence to lead the Philadelphia Flyers over the New York Rangers 4-3 on Wednesday night. Chris Kreider scored a hat trick for the Rangers on three tap-ins in front. Giroux, the Flyers' captain, sat out two weeks after testing positive for coronavirus and missed their loss Sunday to Boston at Lake Tahoe. The 33-year-old Giroux played as though he never lost a step during his layoff and helped set up goals for Erik Gustafsson and Gostisbehere in the first period to give Philadelphia a 2-1 lead. The Flyers counted on a return home to steady the team after they were humbled in a 7-3 loss to the Bruins and had dropped four of five overall. Carter Hart allowed six goals on 23 shots in the first two periods against Boston and hit the bench Wednesday night. Brian Elliott stopped 24 shots for the Flyers, who start a rugged stretch Saturday of six games in nine days — including three straight games at Pittsburgh. Giroux’s return certainly helped depth issues — and his 903rd career game tied him with Bill Barber for most in the regular season with the Flyers. Philadelphia still played without Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Oskar Lindblom and Scott Laughton because of COVID protocols, while the Rangers had the same issue with K’Andre Miller and Kaapo Kakko. “We’d love to have all of our guys healthy and ready to go,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “We’re no different than most teams in the league. We don’t have that luxury right now.” The Flyers got an NHL-high seventh power-play goal of the season from van Riemsdyk to make it 3-1 early in the second. Giroux hit Hayes, who went top shelf against Igor Shesterkin to make it 4-2 late in the second. The Rangers posted video of Kreider playing the piano and then watched him hit all the right notes in his third career hat trick and first since December 2016. Kreider’s first two goals were on the power play and his third one (eighth of the season) made it 4-3. LEAVE OF ABSENCE The Rangers played without star winger Artemi Panarin, on a leave of absence for personal reasons. Panarin’s former KHL coach levied abusive allegations against Panarin. He has denied the accusations and believed the KHL coach made the claim because Panarin has been outspoken about Russian President Vladimir Putin. Quinn said he was “very, very confident” Panarin would be cleared and could soon rejoin the Rangers. IRON MAN Flyers D Ivan Provorov set the NHL record for the most consecutive games played by a defenceman from the start of a career for the same team with 331. Former New York Ranger Dan Girardi held the mark at 330. UP NEXT The Rangers host Boston on Friday on Sunday. The Flyers play Saturday and Sunday at Buffalo. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dan Gelston, The Associated Press

ORLANDO — Bev Priestman leaves her first tournament in charge of Canada with a better idea of the young talent at her disposal but also some pressing questions still to be answered. The Canadian women exited the SheBelieves Cup on a losing note Wednesday, blanked 2-0 by Brazil to finish the four-country competition at 1-2-0. Canada was punished twice for defensive errors in the first half at Exploria Stadium before regrouping in the second to take the game to Brazil, albeit without any reward. Missing key players and bedevilled by injury during the Florida tournament, Canada managed just one goal in three matches — its first outings since last March. It has been outscored 9-3 in its last seven outings (1-4-2) dating back to February 2020. Perhaps more worrying is Canada, tied for eighth with Brazil in the FIFA world rankings, is 0-8-2 in its last 10 matches against teams currently ranked in the top 10. It has been outscored 20-3 over that stretch. Debinha and Julia scored for Brazil, which punished Canadian mistakes in the first half. After an uneven start, the Brazilians took control and showed their attacking flair against a Canadian backline that was pretty green other than centre back Shelina Zadorsky. The 28-year-old Zadorsky, who earned her 69th cap, lined up with 18-year-old Jade Rose (two caps), 20-year-old Jayde Riviere (18 caps) and 22-year-old Gabrielle Carle (23 caps). "We can't start games against a Brazil side like that," Priestman said. "I think the second half was more of a representation of what I'd expect to see from the group." Canada showed more purpose in the early going, stroking the ball around and stretching the Brazilians. But Brazil went ahead in the 14th minute after a giveaway by Rose. Adriana outmuscled Jessie Fleming for the ball and, after a nice interplay with Debinha, charged into the Canadian penalty box and slid a diagonal shot through goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe's legs from close range. The ball hit the far post and bounced back towards the shooter, with Debinha poking it into goal before Labbe and Zadorsky could corral it. The goal spurred Brazil on and Canada paid for some more sloppy defence late in the half. Julia hammered home a shot in the 39th minute after a penalty box scramble that saw Rose, Riviere and Carle all unable to clear the ball. Brazil played deeper as the second half wore on, allowing the Canadians more room on attack in the final minutes. They could not convert, although Zadorsky came close in the 84th minute, kicking out a leg twice while on the ground to force consecutive goal-line stops from goalkeeper Barbara and defender Bruna off a Janine Beckie set piece. Brazil improved its record against Canada to 9-8-7. Canada opened the tournament with a 1-0 loss to the top-ranked U.S. before defeating No. 31 Argentina 1-0. Brazil beat Argentina 4-1 and lost 2-0 to the U.S. The U.S. (3-0-0) thumped Argentina 6-0 later Wednesday to defend its tournament title. Argentina lost its third straight. The Canadians kept the U.S. scoreless until the 79th minute in their tournament opener, with the 34-year-old Priestman heartened by the gritty performance. "That gave me massive massive belief in what this group can do. And I still have that belief," she said. More clinical finishing is needed, however. "I've learned and I've seen that Canada has to score more goals. I do believe we will because again the chances and the stats tell us we're in those areas," said Priestman. "It's just that final quality." Beckie, perhaps Canada's best player in the day, says more is needed. "I think the positive is that we're creating those chances. But if I'm honest we've been saying that for a while and we've not shifted to putting those chances in the goal. I don't know what the answer is right now. I think time together is helpful, which is difficult right now." Canada went into the tournament missing injured captain Christine Sinclair (186 goals) and midfielder Diana Matheson (19 goals). Goalkeepers Erin McLeod and Kailen Sheridan and defender Bianca St-Georges subsequently were hurt and dropped out. Defenders Kadeisha Buchanan and Ashley Lawrence and forward Jordyn Huitema were not released by their French clubs because of pandemic-related quarantine issues. Defender Vanessa Gilles returned to her French club after the loss to the U.S. as part of a pre-tournament agreement. Allysha Chapman and Quinn, who goes by one name, were unavailable Wednesday due to injury. "There's a massive amount of players missing that could be in the starting lineup," said Priestman. "I think I worked it out today it could be seven players. So what you've seen is some new players and partnership out on the pitch. "And of those new players that were in there, there were some massive performances." The Canadian women's next game is an April 13 away friendly against No. 6 England. "I do believe that come April when we have the whole squad together, we can push forward and address some of the challenges that we've seen at this tournament,' said Priestman. "Rome wasn't built in a day," she added. "And the group knows where we need to go. I know where we need to go. We've just got to keep pushing forward." Priestman made four changes to her starting lineup, with Desiree Scott, Deanne Rose, Sarah Stratigakis and Riviere coming in against Brazil. Scott captained the team, earning her 158th ca. The starting 11 came into the match with a combined 604 caps. The missing Sinclair (296 international appearances), Matheson (206), McLeod (118), Buchanan (101), Lawrence (91) and Huitema (33) have 845 caps between them. With players missing, Priestman used the tournament to give Jordyn Listro, Evelyne Viens, Jade Rose and Samantha Chang their first senior caps. The only four Canadians to start all three games at the tournament were Zadorsky, Fleming, Beckie and Nichelle Prince.

(Don Pablo/Shutterstock - image credit) Vancouver city council has approved a temporary parklet in the Downtown Eastside to be used as a COVID-safe drinking place for people enrolled in a program for severe alcohol use disorder. The parklet will be installed in front of the Drinker's Lounge at 111 Princess Ave. as part of the Portland Hotel Society's Community Managed Alcohol Program, which provides beer and wine to people who might otherwise consumer dangerous substances like hand sanitizers and mouthwash. "Providing safe, low-barrier spaces for people to consume alcohol in the Downtown Eastside will help those most at risk in this community to socialize and look out for each other's safety," Dr. Patricia Daly, chief medical health officer for Vancouver Coastal Health, said in a news release. "Managed consumption sites also provide opportunities to link people to much needed support services, which is critical as part of our response to both public health crises — the overdose emergency and the COVID-19 pandemic." The parklet is set to be installed from March 1 to July 31. According to a press release from the city, the idea was developed in response to concerns from people and businesses in the area, who reported an increase in people drinking the street after COVID-19 restrictions were put in place. That raised the possibility that both community members and drinkers could be injured by falling or being hit by vehicles. City staff are also looking into creating more washroom facilities in the area, the press release says. The parklet pilot project follows last summer's temporary program allowing people to drink at four public plazas in the city. This spring, city staff expect to report back to council about how that worked out and make recommendations about whether to repeat it this year.

TORONTO — William Nylander scored his second goal of the night 1:06 into overtime as the North Division-leading Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Wednesday. Michael Hutchinson stopped 21 shots for Toronto (15-4-2) in his second consecutive start in place of Frederik Andersen. The team's top netminder remains out with a lower-body ailment. Auston Matthews had two assists. Andrew Mangiapane replied for Calgary (9-9-2), which had lost four of its last five in regulation before Monday's 3-0 victory at Scotiabank Arena. David Rittich made 37 saves in his second straight start in place of injured No. 1 goalie Jacob Markstrom, who's day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Nylander took a pass from Matthews in the extra period and beat Rittich upstairs for his seventh of the season as the Leafs spilled over the boards to celebrate. Mangiapane finally snapped a 0-0 tie with 3:27 left in the third period when he took a pass from Matthew Tkachuk behind the Toronto net and beat Hutchinson for his seventh goal of the season. Rittich, who made 34 saves for his first victory of the season Monday, had made 70 straight stops against the Leafs, but Nylander jammed home his sixth with 1:28 remaining on the clock to tie it. Next up for the Flames is four in a row against the Ottawa Senators, including three straight in the nation's capital, starting Thursday. The Leafs, meanwhile, open a five-game road trip Saturday in Edmonton with the first of three against Oilers before two more versus the Vancouver Canucks. Apart from missing Andersen, the Leafs were without first-line winger Joe Thornton (lower body) and top-4 defenceman Jake Muzzin (facial fracture) for the second consecutive game. All three players continue to be listed as day-to-day, while backup goalie Jack Campbell (leg) and forward Wayne Simmonds (wrist) remain on injured reserve. Zach Hyman returned to the Toronto setup after missing Monday with a suspected foot injury, slotting into Thornton's spot on the top line with Matthews and Mitch Marner to start the game. Hyman also spent some time with the Leafs' 23-year-old stars earlier in the schedule when Thornton missed 10 contests with a rib fracture. Toronto's power play, which remained tied for first in the NHL entering Wednesday despite going 0 for 7 in that shutout loss to Calgary, got a chance seven minutes into the third after a disjointed 0-for-3 performance in the first, but still couldn't get anything going with Matthews, Marner, John Tavares and Nylander loaded up on the top unit. Rittich continued to shut the door on the Leafs, including a nice stop with Alexander Barabanov in alone with under five to go in regulation before the teams traded late goals. Tavares had a great chance to open the scoring in the second off a pass from Matthews, but Rittich made a terrific right-pad save at full stretch. Toronto, which hadn't been shut out this season before Monday, got another opportunity on a 2-on-1 break shorthanded later in the period only to see the Calgary netminder rob the snake-bitten Ilya Mikheyev following a great saucer pass from Alexander Kerfoot. Rittich then shut the five-hole on a partial break for Matthews, who crashed into the end boards after a shove from Rasmus Andersson and subsequently had his right wrist taped by a trainer on the bench. Hutchinson denied Johnny Gaudreau at the other end after he stepped into the slot as the teams went to the locker rooms knotted 0-0. The Leafs spent a large chunk of Tuesday's practice on special teams, but didn't get a decent look until the tail end of their third chance in the opening period when Matthews fired right at Rittich. Morgan Rielly also had a chance as the man advantage expired. Notes: Barabanov, who had an inconclusive COVID-19 test this week before producing two negatives results, was in the lineup for a second straight game after not dressing for eight of Toronto's last nine outings. ... The Leafs and Flames play five more times this season, with the next meetings set for March 19 and 20 back at Scotiabank Arena.
