NEWARK, New Jersey: David Clarkson and Patrik Elias scored in a shootout and the New Jersey Devils rallied from a late two-goal deficit to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Thursday night, snapping a season-high six game winless streak.
Elias and Adam Henrique got the Devils to the overtime, scoring in the final 6 1/2 minutes, with Elias tying the game on a rebound with 66 seconds left in regulation.
Thomas Vanek and rookie Brian Flynn staked Buffalo to a 2-0 lead, with Vanek tallying his team-high 13th goal of the season on a second-period power play, and Flynn getting the first of his career midway through the third period.
Johan Hedberg made 23 saves and stopped both Sabres shootout attempts for New Jersey.
After Ilya Kovalchuk and Vanek missed on the first two shootout attempts, Clarkson made a nifty move to beat Ryan Miller with a backhander.
Capitals 7, Panthers 1: At Washington, John Erskine, Wojtek Wolski, John Carlson and Mike Ribeiro all scored before the game was 8 1/2 minutes old, and the Capitals climbed out of a tie for last in the Eastern Conference.
Florida’s Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on two shots and was pulled after 3 minutes, 10 seconds — the fastest yanking of an NHL goalie for something other than an injury in more than a year, according to STATS LLC.
Rangers 2, Islanders 1, OT: At Uniondale, New York, Marian Gaborik scored a power-play goal 42 seconds into overtime. Gaborik took a feed in the high slot from Rick Nash, who got the Rangers even at 1 with 5:23 left in regulation, and fired in a shot for his eighth of the season and first in nine games.
The Rangers got their third power play of the night — the only advantages for either team — when Michael Del Zotto was hauled down as he crashed in on Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov 21 seconds into the extra session.
Penguins 5, Flyers 4: At Philadelphia, Chris Kunitz scored his second goal just 18 seconds into the third period to cap a four-goal rally. Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy also scored goals for the Atlantic Division-leading Penguins, who won their third straight game.
Jakub Voracek had two power-play goals, Zac Rinaldo and Kimmo Timonen also scored for the Flyers, who blew a 4-1 lead after the first period.
Both starting goalies — Philadelphia’s Ilya Bryzgalov and Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury — were pulled after allowing four goals.
Scott Hartnell had his tying goal disallowed near the midpoint of the third period because his stick was above the crossbar when he deflected Timonen’s shot into the net.
Bruins 4, Maple Leafs 2: At Boston, Tyler Seguin had two goals and an assist and Patrice Bergeron had one of each.
Anton Khudobin stopped 25 shots for Boston, which blew leads in each of its previous two games and lost both.
David Krejci also scored for Boston, and Brad Marchand had a pair of assists.
Blue Jackets 2, Canucks 1, OT: At Columbus, Ohio, Matt Calvert carried the puck almost from end to end, twice avoiding opposing players, before skating to the slot and scoring on a rising wrist shot.
Calvert took a pass from Fedor Tyutin deep in the defensive zone and chipped the puck along the right boards while twice fighting off defenders. He then went unimpeded to the right hash before whipping the puck high over the glove side of goalie Cory Schneider.
Jets 2, Lightning 1: In Tampa, Florida, Bryan Little scored a tiebreaking goal late in the third period and Al Montoya made 28 saves.
Little slid the puck from in-close past goalie Anders Lindback with 4:08 to play. Winnipeg also got a goal from Eric Tangradi.
The Jets were beaten by the Lightning 8-3 on Feb. 1. This outcome was much different.
Steven Stamkos got his 18th goal this season for the Lightning, who have lost six of seven.
Canadiens 4, Hurricanes 2: In Raleigh, Brandon Prust and Lars Eller each had a goal and two assists for Montreal Canadiens.
Eller’s goal at 6:09 of the third period gave Montreal the lead for good and P.K. Subban added a power-play goal to make it 4-2.
The Canadiens, playing their third game of a five-game road trip, were outshot 43-28, but Carey Price made 41 saves to earn his 12th win of the season.
Blues 6, Coyotes 3: At Glendale, Arizona, Patrik Berglund scored twice in a span of 2:22 for St. Louis.
Chris Stewart got a goal and two assists, David Perron added four assists, and Scott Nichol, Vladimir Sobotka and Alex Pietrangelo also scored as the Blues won after two straight losses.
David Moss scored a short-handed goal, Keith Yandle had a power-play goal and Shane Doan added his second goal in three games for the Coyotes, who have lost two straight.
