PHILADELPHIA — Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, and Max Talbot scored goals and the Philadelphia Flyers held on for a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Ilya Bryzgalov allowed a goal to Henrik Zetterberg on Detroit’s first shot of the game. Johan Franzen made it 3-2 in the third.

The Flyers won on the night they retired former defenseman Mark Howe’s No. 2 and raised the number to the rafters.

The Flyers lost forward Jaromir Jagr in the second period to a lower-body injury. Jagr has missed games this season with a nagging groin injury.
