By The Associated Press
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - David Ullstrom scored early in the third period to give the Islanders a big lead, and New York held off the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 Monday.
Coach Jack Capuano returned to the Islanders and guided them to their first win of the season. He missed the opening-night loss to New Jersey on Saturday because of surgery to remove a kidney stone. Michael Grabner, Matt Martin and Kyle Okposo scored in a 12-minute span of the second period to put the Islanders ahead 3-0. Ullstrom gave New York a four-goal lead 91 seconds into the final period.
Martin St. Louis, Benoit Pouliot and Steven Stamkos scored in a 5 1/2-minute stretch, pulling Tampa Bay within a goal with 12 minutes left. The Lightning couldn't get anything else past Evgeni Nabokov, who stopped 23 of 26 shots.
Anders Lindback allowed all four of New York's goals on 44 shots.
SENATORS 4, PANTHERS 0
OTTAWA (AP) - Kyle Turris scored twice and Craig Anderson made 31 saves as the Ottawa Senators shut out the Florida Panthers in their home opener.
Anderson, making his second straight start to open the season, picked up his 20th career shutout. Jim O'Brien and Jakob Silfverberg, with his first NHL goal, also scored for the Senators.
Jose Theodore was strong in defeat for the Panthers, finishing with 33 stops.
BLUES 4, PREDATORS 3, SO
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen scored in the shootout, and the St. Louis Blues edged the Nashville Predators.
The Blues won the Central Division last season, but the Predators won the season series 4-1-1 with three of those games going to a shootout. This time, the Blues had the only goals in a shootout that lasted only two rounds. Brian Elliott, who came off the bench in the second, stopped Craig Smith and Martin Erat to get the win.
Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and two assists for St. Louis. Andy McDonald had a power-play goal and an assist, and Alex Pietrangelo's goal tied it up in the third period.
Patric Hornqvist had a goal and two assists for Nashville. Mike Fisher had a goal and an assist, Colin Wilson a goal and Erat two assists.
BRUINS 2, JETS 1, SO
BOSTON (AP) - Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in the shootout to lift the Boston Bruins over the Winnipeg Jets.
Brad Marchand had the regulation goal for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask made 26 saves in regulation and held the Jets to only Blake Wheeler's score in the shootout. Bryan Little, the last shooter, hit the right post to end the game.
Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves in regulation for the Jets, but gave up scores to Boston's first two shooters in the extra session. Chris Thorburn scored for the Jets.
RED WINGS 4, BLUE JACKETS 3, SO
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Swiss rookie Damien Brunner scored in the fourth round of the shootout to lead the Detroit Red Wings past Columbus before 19,206 - the largest regular-season crowd at Nationwide Arena in the Blue Jackets' 11-plus seasons.
Brian Lashoff scored in his NHL debut and fellow defenseman Ian White also scored for Detroit, which got on the board twice in the second period after being humiliated 6-0 in its opener Saturday night in St. Louis. Pavel Datsyuk had a goal to send the game into overtime with 6 minutes remaining in overtime.
Cam Atkinson, James Wisniewski and Vinny Prospal scored goals during regulation for Columbus, which was coming off a 3-2 shootout win at Nashville on Saturday night.
Columbus was playing its first home game without Rick Nash, traded to the New York Rangers, since the end of the 2001-2002 season.
SABRES 2, MAPLE LEAFS 1
TORONTO, Ontario (AP) - Ryan Miller stopped 34 shots to lead the Buffalo Sabres past the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Miller lost his shutout bid when Nazem Kadri scored on the power play with 1:42 remaining, his second goal of the season. Toronto's Joffrey Lupul appeared to tie it seconds later with goalie Ben Scrivens on the bench, but the goal was disallowed.
Cody Hodgson and Jason Pominville had the goals for Buffalo.
