He also tacked on three assists to bring his weeklong point total to eight points in four games.

The 25-year-old Hartnell was acquired from Nashville last June and signed a six-year, $25.2-million deal with Philadelphia to forgo becoming an unrestricted free agent.

He has 22 points through 41 games this year.
