NHL ROUNDUP

Bruins 2, Devils 1 (SO)

Brad Marchand scored the decisive shootout goal after teammate Nathan Horton forced overtime late in the third period and Boston rallied for a win over New Jersey Tuesday night.

Boston's Tyler Seguin and New Jersey's Ilya Kovalchuk scored on their teams' first shot during the shootout. Then both teams failed on their next four attempts.

But Marchand put the puck between goalie Johan Hedberg's pads and the Bruins won when Marek Zidlicky's shot hit Tuukka Rask's left pad.

David Clarkson had put New Jersey ahead with his fourth goal of the season on a power play at 8:30 of the second period. Horton tied the game with his third goal with 4:05 left in regulation.

Rangers 2, Flyers 1

Ryan Callahan scored a power-play goal before leaving with an injury in the third period, and Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves to lead New York to a victory.

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto had a goal and assist for the Rangers (3-3). Philadelphia (2-5) has dropped two in a row.

Kimmo Timonen ended Lundqvist's shutout bid 7:09 into the third with a power-play goal after the Rangers were caught with too many men on the ice.

Ilya Bryzgalov, back in the net after his first game off, was solid in making 26 saves for Philadelphia.

Islanders 4, Penguins 1

Matt Moulson scored a goal and assisted on another, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 37 shots and New York dominated listless Pittsburgh.

John Tavares scored for the second straight game for New York while Michael Grabner collected his fourth goal of the season and Casey Cizikas found the net for the first time in his career.

Maple Leafs 4, Sabres 3 (OT)

Matt Frattin scored his second goal of the game with 1.5 seconds left in overtime, lifting Toronto to a win.

Frattin skated in from the left circle and wristed a shot over the shoulder of Sabres goalie Ryan Miller.

Jay McClement and Cody Franson also scored for Toronto, which snapped a two-game skid. James Reimer made 29 saves for the Maple Leafs.

Jason Pominville, Andrej Sekera and Mikhail Grigorenko scored for Buffalo, which lost its fourth straight. Miller stopped 20 shots.

Red Wings 4, Stars 1

Valtteri Filppula scored two goals - both off nifty passes from Pavel Datsyuk - and Detroit beat Dallas.

Henrik Zetterberg scored on a two-man advantage in the final minute of the second period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead, and Damien Brunner and Filppula scored 23 seconds apart in the third.

The Red Wings rallied after Loui Eriksson opened the scoring in the second period for Dallas.

Jimmy Howard made 25 saves for Detroit.

Wild 3, Blue Jackets 2

Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period and Minnesota snapped a three-game losing streak.

With the Wild seemingly on their heels after giving up a two-goal lead, Bouchard took a pass from Torrey Mitchell near the blue line, zoomed past two Columbus defenders and beat goalie Steve Mason above his right glove.

Senators 3, Capitals 2

Sergei Gonchar scored on the power play with 2:30 left in regulation as Ottawa battled back from a sluggish start.

Jim O'Brien and Milan Michalek also scored for the Senators (4-1-1), who got 31 saves from Craig Anderson.

Troy Brouwer and Matt Hendricks scored for the Capitals (1-4-1). Michal Neuvirth stopped 24 shots in taking the loss for Washington, which blew a 2-0 lead.

Lightning 5, Panthers 2

Steven Stamkos scored his fourth goal of the season and Tampa Bay beat the Florida.

Tampa Bay, which has won five of six to start the year, also got goals from Cory Conacher, Tom Pyatt, Dana Tyrell and Vincent Lecavalier. Stamkos, who led the NHL with 60 goals last season, has 11 points during a season-opening six-game point streak this year.

Peter Mueller and Tomas Fleischmann scored for the Panthers, who have lost five in a row after a season-opening win over Carolina. Florida has been outscored 23-5 during its skid.
