CHICAGO: Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night to stretch their NHL-record opening points streak to 19 games.
Patrick Sharp set up the winning goal with a quick turn along the boards and a drive to the goal that led to two stops by Nikolai Khabibulin. Hossa picked up the second rebound and was again stuffed by Khabibulin before he poked it in for his ninth goal of the season.
Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Chicago (16-0-3), which has won six straight and nine of 10. Ray Emery made 17 saves to remain unbeaten in eight starts this season.
Nail Yakupov and Jeff Petry had the goals for Edmonton, which carried a 2-1 lead into the third period but couldn’t hold on for its fourth consecutive victory over the Blackhawks. Khabibulin had 31 stops in the opener of the Oilers’ franchise-record, nine-game road trip.
Kings 5 Ducks 2: In Los Angeles, Slava Voynov scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Los Angeles beat Anaheim for its fourth consecutive victory while snapping the Ducks’ six-game winning streak.
Dustin Brown added a goal and his 200th career assist, and Anze Kopitar had three assists to help the Kings win for the sixth time in seven games. Jonathan Quick stopped 24 shots.
Anaheim’s 30-year-old rookie, Viktor Fasth, made 20 saves in the loss after winning his first eight NHL games, the longest streak in the league this season.
Jake Muzzin, Jeff Carter and Dustin Penner also scored for the Kings.
Andrew Cogliano and Saku Koivu scored for the Ducks.
Senators 2 Canadiens 1, SO: In Ottawa, Peter Regin scored in the fifth round of the shootout and Ben Bishop made 44 saves in regulation and overtime, leading Ottawa to a win over Montreal.
Jakob Silfverberg also scored in the shootout, while David Desharnais replied for Montreal.
After Regin gave the Senators the lead in the shootout, Bishop stopped Tomas Plekanec to secure Ottawa’s season-high fifth straight win. Regin had a chance to end the game late in OT but his slap shot hit the post behind Canadiens goaltender Carey Price, who finished with 23 saves. Dave Dziurzynski had a goal in regulation for the Senators.
Andrei Markov scored for the Canadiens.
Maple Leafs 4 Flyers 2: In Philadelphia, Phil Kessel, Nikolai Kulemin, Mikhail Grabovski and Jay McClement scored to lead Toronto to a win over Philadelphia.
Ben Scrivens made 23 saves for Toronto, which survived a double-minor against leading scorer James van Riemsdyk in the third period. Van Riemsdyk, who was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Flyers and played three seasons with them before being traded, was held scoreless in his return to Philadelphia.
Scott Hartnell scored his first goal of the season for the Flyers, who had won three of their last four. Jakub Voracek also scored for Philadelphia.
Predators 5 Stars 4, OT: In Nashville, Tennessee, Roman Josi scored his second goal 28 seconds into overtime and Nashville edged Dallas in a game featuring six goals scored in the second period.
Josi’s slap shot helped Nashville end a two-game skid, and the defenseman also had two assists.
Mike Fisher, Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist each scored goals for Nashville. The last two losses had been shutouts, and the Predators ended a scoring drought at 133:43 after threatening the franchise-worst drought that reached 176:18 on Feb. 13 in an overtime win over San Jose.

Rookie Matt Fraser and Reilly Smith scored 25 seconds apart within the first 2 minutes of the second, and Vern Fiddler and Eriksson added a power-play goal apiece in the second period.
