Flyers hold on to win at Winnipeg
Brayden Schenn, Kimmo Timonen and Tye McGinn scored to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 3-2 victory against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.
The Flyers (6-7-1), coming off a 5-2 loss in Toronto, won on the road for the second time this season. Jakub Voracek had two assists.
Andrew Ladd scored both goals for the Jets (5-6-1), the last in the final seconds. Winnipeg was coming off a 1-0 win in Ottawa on Saturday.
Ilya Bryzgalov was solid in net for the Flyers, who were outshot 26-23.
Al Montoya recorded his first loss as a starter for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec replaced Montoya in the third after what was reported as a lower-body injury for Montoya.
The Flyers took a 2-1 lead in the first, even though they were outshot 9-6 by the Jets.
Montoya didn't have much of a chance when Schenn redirected Voracek's pass right in front of the net on Philadelphia's second shot of the game at 8:07.
Winnipeg tied it up at 14:12, when Blake Wheeler fed Ladd just in front of the Flyers net and he squeezed one past Bryzgalov's short side.
A late cross-checking penalty to defenseman Zach Redmond was costly, with Timonen slamming the puck down a clear path between the faceoff circles that Montoya wasn't fast enough to block.
There was no scoring in the second, although Winnipeg again outshot the Flyers 10-6 for the period. There was also a short scrap between Jets defenseman Mark Stuart and McGinn.
McGinn then redirected Vortacek's pass into Winnipeg's net at the 4:17 mark from just outside the crease.
Ladd scored his final goal at 19:13 after the Jets pulled their goaltender.
The Jets went 0 for 4 on the power play.
This was Winnipeg's and Philadelphia's first meeting this season.
It was also the first game defenseman Dustin Byfuglien has played since the Jets visited Montreal. He got a massive cheer when his name was announced in the starting lineup.
Rangers 4, Bruins 3: Ryan Callahan scored as the final participant in the shootout and New York recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat Boston.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 37 shots, plus three of the four attempts in the shootout. Carl Hagelin scored for the second straight game, and Derek Stepan and Anton Stralman each added an unassisted goal for the Rangers.
Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for the Bruins, who have three losses this season and two of them are to the Rangers after regulation.
David Krejci made it 3-1 with 11 minutes left, then Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand scored in the final 91 seconds to send the game into overtime.
New York won for the fourth time in five games.
The Rangers broke a scoreless tie midway through the first period when Rick Nash stickhandled through two defensemen and slid the puck over to Hagelin, who had an empty half of a net to shoot at. Stepan stole the puck at center ice and snapped a shot past Rask to make it 2-0 in the second.
The Rangers started the third period with a two-goal lead and a two-man advantage. Boston killed off the penalties, but a minute later Stralman floated a seemingly harmless shot toward Rask that got through the goalie's pads and trickled into the net.
Hurricanes 4, Devils 2: Jiri Tlusty scored two goals in the third period and Cam Ward made 26 saves as Carolina beat New Jersey snapping the Devils' five-game winning streak.
Jussi Jokinen and Patrick Dwyer also scored for Carolina, which went 4-1-1 to conclude a six-game road trip.
Capitals 6, Panthers 5: Troy Brouwer scored 32 seconds into overtime for Washington, which rallied from a late two-goal deficit to beat Florida.
Washington trailed 5-3 before Eric Fehr scored on a redirect at 14:53 of the third period. Alex Ovechkin then scored a power-play goal with 2:49 left to tie it.
Florida rookie Jonathan Huberdeau had his first multigoal game, and Drew Shore scored his first NHL goal. Tomas Fleischmann and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, and Scott Clemmensen made 23 saves.
Senators 2, Sabres 0: Craig Anderson made 42 saves and Erik Karlsson and Erik Condra scored goals less than two minutes apart in the second period as Ottawa defeated Buffalo.
Anderson, who picked up his second shutout of the season, was especially sharp in the third period with the Sabres pressing for the tie as the Senators snapped a mini two-game slide.
Ryan Miller made 29 saves in taking the loss for Buffalo.
Predators 1, Sharks 0: Colin Wilson scored at 2:08 of overtime, and Nashville snapped a two-game skid.
Pekka Rinne made 25 saves for his second shutout this season in a game in which Nashville set a franchise mark for offensive futility before Wilson scored. The goal ended the drought at just over 176 minutes in a three-game span.
Canadiens 4, Lightning 3: Carey Price stopped all three shots in the shootout, David Desharnais had the lone goal in the tiebreaker, and Montreal rebounded after blowing a three-goal lead against Tampa Bay.
Ducks 3, Blackhawks 2: Viktor Fasth made two stops in the shootout to remain perfect in six starts and Anaheim beat Chicago in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference.
