PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Flyers had hoped to get off a good start. Lonzo Ball Gold Jersey . Even they couldnt have predicted just how dominant they would be to open the game.Sean Couturier had a goal and an assist in the first period, Jakub Voracek continued his offensive surge, and the Flyers cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.The Flyers led 2-0 less than 7 minutes into the game. Couturier deflected in a shot from Brayden Schenn at 3:53, and Michael Del Zotto made it 2-0 less than 3 minutes later with his first goal with the Flyers.We talked about needing to get off to a good start, said Schenn, who had two assists. We tried to jump on them early, and theres a couple of plays we capitalized on.Voracek got his sixth goal of the season to pull into tie with Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby with a league-leading 19 points, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also scored for Philadelphia, which has won four straight at home.Nick Bjugstad scored his first goal of the season for the Panthers, who had earned at least one point in their previous seven games.Nobody was very good for us tonight, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. We just werent sharp enough, we werent hungry enough and we didnt battle enough.Steve Mason made 35 saves, including a big third-period stop on Bjugstad, to pick up his second straight win for the Flyers. Roberto Luongo stopped 30 shots for Florida.The Flyers dominated the first period with Couturier opening the scoring. The play developed when Schenn won the puck with a forecheck and Matt Read slid a pass from the corner to him and Schenn one-timed a shot toward net.The same line struck again at 6:38 as Del Zotto scored after rifling a tough-angle shot past an out-of-position Luongo with Schenn and Couturier getting the assists.Schenn, who started the season on the teams first line, believes that getting Couturier and Read going on the third line could turn out to be a huge boost for the team.Youre going to need some secondary scoring, the defenceman said. With the three of us, weve got some good chemistry. As long as we play good defence, the offensive chances will come.Flyers coach Craig Berube has liked what hes seen out of that line as well, saying that he wants to keep Schenn in that spot rather than move him back to the top line to replace Michael Raffl, who will miss six weeks with a foot injury.I like him where hes at, Berube said. I didnt find that (Read) and (Couturier) were shooting enough pucks and getting it to the net. Hopefully Schenn can force that a little and get to the net himself, like he should.The Flyers picked up right where they left off early in the second period with Bellemare one-timing one over Luongos shoulder following a turnover and feed from Carlo Colaiacovo. The assist marked Colaiacovos first point in two games with the Flyers.The Panthers pulled to 3-1 with 8:10 remaining in the second period on a power-play goal from Bjugstad, who pounced on a rebound. Jimmy Hayes, who split the Flyers penalty kill to put a backhander on net, and Dmitry Kulikov got the assists after Phillys Chris VandeVelde was sent to the box for high-sticking.Bjugstad, who had 16 goals and 22 assists last year, was relieved to finally get his first goal of the season.I mean, yeah, you dont really think about how long its going to take, he said. Obviously you dont want it to take that long but you just have to stay positive throughout.It was the first power-play goal the Flyers allowed at home this season, snapping their streak at 19 straight penalty kills.Just 39 seconds later, the Flyers regained their three-goal cushion when Voracek scored as Claude Giroux set him up with a perfectly executed 2-on-1 break.Voracek extended his scoring streak to seven games, with four goals and eight assists during the stretch.It was a great breakout, Voracek said. Obviously (Giroux) is one of the best playmakers in the league. So I was ready for that pass. It was an easy tap-in.NOTES: The win for the Flyers evened a 2-1 loss they suffered to the Panthers five days ago in Florida. ... Thursdays game was the second of a four-game homestand for Philadelphia. . The Panthers have totalled a league-low 16 goals all season. ... The Flyers wore fatigues during warmups for Military Appreciation Night at the Wells Fargo Center, and U.S. servicemen were honoured throughout the game. Lonzo Ball Purple Jersey . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins (5) – He was locked in all night, made huge stops on Benoit Pouliot, Raphael Diaz, Ryan Mcdonagh, Carl Hagelin, Rick Nash (twice) but none better than the three saves on Mats Zuccarello. Cheap Lonzo Ball Jersey . The Spanish champions decision not to sign a defender during the January transfer window may have backfired after Valencia took advantage of a lethargic, uninspired effort by its hosts at the Camp Nou, where former Spain coach Luis Aragones -- who previously coached the Catalan side -- was honoured after his death on Saturday.Adam Scott will attempt to win his third Australian Masters title in a row on yet another renowned Melbourne sand-belt course, and with a tryout caddie on his bag.Scott went close to winning Australian golfs so-called Triple Crown last year but Rory McIlroys birdie on the 18th hole at the Australian Open relegated Scott to second place at that tournament.On Thursday, Scott begins play at Metropolitan, which is hosting the Masters for the first time. Last year, Scott beat American Matt Kuchar by two strokes at Royal Melbourne, successfully defending the Australian Masters title he won at Kingston Heath in 2012.No. 2-ranked Scott, with U.S.-based Englishman David Clark as caddie, will then renew his rivalry with No. 1 McIlroy in the Australian Open next week at Sydney.Scott will also aim to defend his Australian PGA title next month at Royal Pines in Queensland state.I am very happy with where my game is coming in, Scott said Wednesday. I had a good summer here last year, so to keep that momentum would be great. Im hoping to make it three in a row.Scott said he always intended to play in Australias three biggest tournaments of the year. The only other event that attracts international players in Australia is the Perth International, a joint European Tour event which was held in October.If all I have to do to help the game in Australia is play these events, then it is a pretty easy role for me, he said.Others in the Australian Masters field include Americans Kyle Stanley and Boo Weekley. Weekley is also entered in next weeks Open at Sydney, joining Scott, McIIlroy and Jordan Spieth at The Australian Golf Club. Lonzo Ball Authentic Jersey. McIlroy won by a stroke last year at Royal Sydney.The Masters first appearance at Metropolitan, which hosted the world match play in 2001, comes with some controversy. Recently, a betting agency was confirmed as the primary sponsor of the event, which was first played at nearby Huntingdale in 1979.At the same time, the word Australian was deleted from the tournament masthead and replaced with the betting agency name, a move that didnt sit well with anti-gambling groups. It was also too much, it seems, for the website of the century-old Metropolitan club, which continues to refer to the tournament as the Australian Masters and makes no mention of the new sponsor on its site.The Australian PGA, scheduled for Dec. 11-14, will include Scott, Weekley and former champion Robert Allenby, who is the only golfer to win Australias Triple Crown in 2005.Scott was expected to have Clark, who first caddied for him two weeks ago at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, working all three Australian tournaments in the absence of Steve Williams, the veteran former caddie of Tiger Woods.Williams and Scott parted ways after the caddie said he only wanted to work a part-time schedule next year.On Wednesday, Scott suggested he might use a couple different guys after this week and kind of see where things are at and who is going to fit in best next year in a more permanent position.Scott will take a lengthy Christmas break after the Australian PGA and might not return until late January or early February.
