NEW YORK (AP) -Jaromir Jagr, whose mouth was bloodied earlier by an errant stick, fired in a one-timer with 9:15 left Monday night to give the previously punchless New York Rangers a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Jagr flashed a toothless grin on the bench shortly before ripping Michal Rozsival's pass by goalie Johan Holmqvist during a power play for his third of the season and second in two games.
Brendan Shanahan connected for another power-play goal 2:44 later, with assists from Jagr and Chris Drury, to seal New York's second win in seven games (2-4-1). Nigel Dawes netted the first goal for the Rangers, who have scored an NHL-low 19 in 11 games.
Vincent Lecavalier netted his sixth on a second-period penalty shot, but the Lightning - 5-0-1 at home - fell to 0-4 on the road as they started a three-stop trip in the New York area.
Capitals 7, Maple Leafs 1
TORONTO (AP) - Alexander Ovechkin scored his seventh and eighth goals of the season and five Washington players got their first in a victory over Toronto.
Brian Sutherby, Matt Bradley, Jeff Schultz, Matt Pettinger and Boyd Gordon all scored their first goals of the season for the Capitals while center Michael Nylander had three assists.
Alexei Ponikarovsky scored for the Maple Leafs, who have allowed an NHL-high 51 goals this season. They continued their poor play at home where they have won only three times in nine games (3-4-2).
Sharks 4, Stars 2
DALLAS (AP) - Devin Setoguchi scored two goals in the third period of his first NHL game to help San Jose rally to beat Dallas.
Setoguchi, the eighth overall pick in 2005, tied the game at 2 when he beat Dallas goalie Marty Turco midway through the third.
Two minutes, 34 seconds later, he took a pass in front of the net from Joe Thornton, who had two assists, and put the Sharks ahead 3-2 at 14:27. San Jose added an insurance goal 17 seconds later from Steve Bernier to go ahead 4-2.
Setoguchi stole the show from Dallas center Mike Modano, who moved within one of tying the NHL record for most points by a U.S.-born player. Modano had an assist in the second period to give him 1,231 points, behind Phil Housley's 1,232.
