NHL Headline News

 WASHINGTON (AP) - Eric Fehr scored 37 seconds into overtime Tuesday night, and the Washington Capitals rallied from a three-goal, first-period deficit to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 in a thriller reminiscent of the teams' seven-game playoff series a year ago.
Pinched by two defenders, Fehr was falling forward as he got off the shot that hit the upper right post and went in, giving the Capitals their seventh win in 10 games as they attempt to climb out of the lower echelons of the NHL standings.
Wojtek Wolski and Mike Ribeiro also scored, and Tomas Kundratek got his first NHL goal for the Bruins.
A short-handed penalty shot by Brad Marchand, an even-strength goal by Zdeno Chara and a power-play tally from Dougie Hamilton gave Boston a 3-0 lead in the first period.
RANGERS 4, FLYERS 2
NEW YORK (AP) - Rick Nash snapped a third-period tie and then added an insurance goal as the New York Rangers held on to beat the Philadelphia Flyers for their third win in a row.
Nash fired a shot that sneaked under the right arm of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov 2:50 into the third to give New York its second lead of the game. He doubled the advantage to 4-2 with 8:18 left.
Ryan Callahan scored two first-period goals and assisted on Nash's second, and Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves for the Rangers, who played without Brad Richards. New York lost key defenseman Marc Staal 5:45 into the third when a shot by Kimmo Timonen from the blue line clipped the stick of forward Jake Voracek and caromed up into Staal's right eye, causing a cut. Staal, who wasn't wearing a visor, squirmed on the ice and held his face before skating off.
Wayne Simmonds and Voracek both scored power-play goals in the first period for Philadelphia. Bryzgalov stopped 16 shots.
LIGHTNING 5, DEVILS 2
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Nate Thompson scored twice and Martin St. Louis and rookie Alexander Killorn each had a goal and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lightning snapped a five-game losing streak.
Cory Conacher and Vincent Lecavalier each had two assists as the Lightning won for only the second time in eight games and extended the Devils' winless streak to six games (0-5-1).
Anders Lindback had 25 saves for the Lightning, surrendering late goals to Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias.
Steven Stamkos' 10-game point streak ended for Tampa Bay.
ISLANDERS 6, CANADIENS 3
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Radek Martinek scored the tiebreaking goal eight minutes into the third period and the New York Islanders handed Montreal its first regulation loss in nearly a month.
Martinek's shot from the left point on a pass from Kyle Okposo eluded goaltender Carey Price at 7:56. It was the first goal of the season for Martinek, who hadn't scored since Oct. 12, 2011, while with Columbus. John Tavares scored his team-leading 14th goal with 1:07 left before Colin McDonald closed the scoring with an empty-netter.
Brian Gionta's power-play goal at 6:07 of the third - the 20,000th goal for the Canadiens since the NHL was formed in 1917 - tied the game at 3.
HURRICANES 4, SABRES 3
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Alexander Semin had a goal and two assists, linemate Eric Staal added three assists and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Buffalo Sabres.
Jiri Tlusty, Joe Corvo and Jussi Jokinen also scored for Carolina, which was playing for the first time since goalie Cam Ward went on injured reserve following a torn MCL that will require a recovery of 6-to-8 weeks. The Hurricanes won their fourth straight and completed a three-game season sweep of the Sabres.
Staal picked up his 600th NHL point with the first of his two assists on the night on Tlusty's goal in the first period. Justin Peters, recalled from Charlotte of the AHL, had 37 saves in his first start of the season for the Hurricanes.
Ryan Miller had 24 saves for Buffalo, which got two goals from Cody Hodgson and one from T.J. Brennan.
BLUE JACKETS 4, OILERS 3, SO
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Sergei Bobrovsky, replacing an ineffective Steve Mason, made two spectacular short-handed saves in overtime and stopped both shots he faced in the shootout to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Edmonton Oilers.
Vinny Prospal had a goal and an assist, and Derek MacKenzie and Jack Johnson also scored in regulation. Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu scored in the shootout for Columbus, which extended its points streak to four games and is the last team to win back-to-games in the NHL this season.
Jeff Petry, Ryan Whitney and Magnus Paajarvi tallied for Edmonton, who couldn't hold a 3-2 lead and fell to 1-3-1 on season-high nine-game, 17-day road trip in which they've been outshot 111-67.
PANTHERS 4, JETS 1
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Tomas Kopecky, Shawn Matthias and Mike Santorelli scored for Florida and Jonathan Huberdeau converted a penalty shot in the Panthers' victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 shots for his first win of the season for Florida, which won at home for just the fourth time this season. The Panthers have been plagued by injuries this season - including Stephen Weiss' season-ending wrist injury.
Kyle Wellwood scored for Winnipeg and Ondrej Pavelec finished with 22 saves while falling to 8-11-1 this season.
RED WINGS 2, AVALANCHE 1
DETROIT (AP) - Niklas Kronwall scored in the second period thanks to a fluky bounce, and the Detroit Red Wings held on to beat the Colorado Avalanche.
Detroit opened the scoring with 13:00 to go in the second on a breakaway goal by Johan Franzen, and Kronwall added to the lead when his shot from the point went wide, bounced back off the boards and went in off the right skate of goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere.
The Red Wings needed that second goal, because Colorado's Paul Stastny spoiled Jimmy Howard's bid for a shutout when he scored with 1:30 to play in the third.
Detroit has gone four straight games without allowing a goal in the first or second period.
