NHL Headline News

 WASHINGTON (AP) -Mike Comrie scored the only goal of the shootout, and the New York Islanders pushed their winning streak to a season-high five games with a 3-2 victory Wednesday night over the Washington Capitals.
Comrie's backhander was the last shot in the shootout, following misses by Washington's Viktor Kozlov, Alex Ovechkin and Alexander Semin and New York's Richard Park and Miroslav Satan.
Satan and Josef Vasicek scored in regulation for the Islanders, who overcame a 2-0 deficit for the second straight game, having rallied from two down to beat San Jose 3-2 at home on Monday. New York's winning streak, its longest since December 2003, has come on the heels of a seven-game skid that dropped the team to the fringe of the playoff race.
Devils 3, Sharks 2
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - John Madden and Sergei Brylin scored 1:10 apart during New Jersey's three-goal second period, and the Devils took advantage of backup goalie Thomas Greiss.
During a rare night off for San Jose ironman Evgeni Nabokov, the Devils scored three goals on 10 shots in the pivotal period and won their third straight and fifth in six games (5-0-1). They were outshot 32-20 and went without a power-play chance until the third.
San Jose has hit the skids and dropped its season-worst fifth in a row overall (0-4-1), including the first three of an eight-game Eastern road swing. The Sharks were 16-3-2 away from home on Jan. 1, but have gone 1-5-1 on the road since - losing four straight.
Sabres 4, Lightning 3, OT
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Thomas Vanek scored three consecutive goals, including the winner 2:25 into overtime.
Derek Roy had a goal and assist while Tim Connolly had three assists as the Sabres came back from a 3-1 third-period deficit. After scoring two goals 36 seconds apart, tying the score at 3 with 1:45 remaining, Vanek sealed the victory on the power play, after Dan Boyle was penalized for hooking.
Flames 3, Stars 2
DALLAS (AP) - Jarome Iginla scored the go-ahead goal with 2:27 remaining.
With the game tied at 2, Daymond Langkow backhanded a pass in front of the net to an unchecked Iginla, the former Dallas first-round draft pick who fired his 38th goal of the season past Stars goaltender Marty Turco.
Alex Tanguay scored twice for the Flames, including a short-handed goal early in the third period, breaking a 16-goal drought.
Curtis Joseph stopped 29 shots in his third game for the Flames, who have won four of their last six.
Blackhawks 3, Wild 0
CHICAGO (AP) - Nikolai Khabibulin made 38 saves for his first shutout in nearly a year and rookie Dave Bolland scored two goals for Chicago.
NHL rookie points leader Patrick Kane also scored for the Blackhawks, who are 5-1-1 in their last seven.
