NHL roundup

Hurricanes 6, Islanders 4

Alexander Semin netted his 200th NHL goal and Jiri Tlusty scored twice and had two assists for Carolina, which scored four third-period goals and overcame three deficits and a poor night of penalty-killing to send New York to its fifth straight loss Monday.

Semin got help on his milestone goal as his shot from the right-wing boards hit the helmet of Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic and caromed off the post past goalie Rick DiPietro at 5:33 of the third period.

Carolina tied it 3-3 just 30 seconds into the third when Semin fed a pass to Tlusty for his first goal. Eric Staal scored at 9:09 to make it 5-3, and Tlusty added an empty-netter with 10.3 seconds remaining to give him a four-point night.

Maple Leafs 5, Flyers 2

Colton Orr and Matt Frattin scored goals 28 seconds apart in the second period and Toronto earned a win.

Dion Phaneuf, Clarke MacArthur and James van Riemsdyk, against his former team, also scored for Toronto.

But the win came at a cost. James Reimer stopped 12 shots before being replaced by Ben Scrivens early in the second period with what appeared to be a left leg injury.

Reimer stayed down before being helped to the locker room without putting any weight on his left leg. The Leafs described the injury as a "lower-body injury."

Scrivens finished with 32 saves.

Wayne Simmonds and Tye McGinn scored for Philadelphia

Blue Jackets 6, Sharks 2

Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and an assist and Columbus had its biggest offensive output of the season against the NHL's stingiest defense.

James Wisniewski and Nikita Nikitin added goals, Cody Goloubef picked up his first NHL goal and Vinny Prospal and Mark Letestu tied a franchise record by scoring 8 seconds apart in the third period. Nick Foligno and Matt Calvert each had two assists.

Columbus scored 43 seconds into the game, added two goals 1:11 apart in the second period and then scored three goals in the opening 5:45 of the final period.

Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski scored for the Sharks.

Kings 4, Blues 1

Jeff Carter scored twice for the first time since the Stanley Cup clincher, helping Los Angeles keep slumping St. Louis down.

Brian Elliott made 19 saves in a surprise start a day after Jaroslav Halak was activated from injured reserve, led the team onto the ice for the pregame skate and was listed on the game sheet. Halak apparently tweaked a groin strain.

Jonathan Bernier was solid with 21 saves in just his second start of the season for the Kings.

Davis Drewiske made it 3-0 at 13:22 of the second period with his first goal of the season on a power play. Alex Steen scored on a power play in the final minute of the second for St. Louis.
