CALGARY, Alberta — Mike Richards scored twice and Ray Emery made 18 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the new-look Calgary Flames 3-0 on Monday night.

Richards broke a scoreless tie at 10:15 of the second off a series of lucky bounces. Simon Gagne knocked the puck out of the air and off Flames defenseman Jay Bouwmeester. It bounced right to Richards, who ripped a high shot past Miikka Kiprusoff.

The Flyers extended the lead to 2-0 at 1:49 of the third after Calgary captain Jarome Iginla turned over the puck in the Philadelphia end. Arron Asham fed Claude Giroux, who sped in alone on Kiprusoff and neatly put a backhand over the goalie.

Richards added his 22nd of the season on a power play at 17:44.
