TORONTO (AP) -Mats Sundin scored with 29.2 seconds left to give Toronto a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night, one day after Cliff Fletcher took over as the Maple Leafs' interim general manager.
Chad Kilger and Alex Steen also scored for Toronto, and Vesa Toskala made 30 saves.
Alexander Ovechkin got his league-best 39th goal, Alexander Semin also scored, and Olaf Kolzig made 21 saves for Washington.
Sundin's 21st goal of the season tied him with Maurice Richard (544) for 24th on the career list. The 37-year-old Swede swept a rebound under a sprawling Kolzig to avoid overtime.
Red Wings 2, Ducks 1
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Dominik Hasek made 24 saves, Brian Rafalski and Valtteri Filppula scored and league-best Detroit beat defending Stanley Cup champion Anaheim.
Detroit won its ninth road game in the last 10, with Rafalski scoring his ninth goal on a 30-foot slap shot in the opening period with the Red Wings' holding a two-man advantage. Filppula added his 15th to pad the lead in the second period.
Hasek lost his shutout when Chris Pronger scored on a power play with 11:55 remaining, on the Ducks' 22nd shot.
Canucks 3, Blues 2, SO
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Daniel Sedin scored in the shootout to complete Vancouver's first third-period comeback of the season and end a seven-game winless skid.
Roberto Luongo got a break when rookie David Perron hit the post behind him in the third round of the shootout, but made a glove save off Keith Tkachuk to preserve the win after Sedin scored on a nifty deke.
Mattias Ohlund tied it with his second power play goal of the game 1:46 into the third period. Vancouver was 0-17-1 when trailing after two periods.
Brad Boyes and D.J. King scored for the Blues, who failed to hold a third-period lead in regulation for just the second time all season - they were 14-0-1 - and extended their winless streak to six games.
