NHL roundup

Rangers 4, Bruins 3 (SO)

Ryan Callahan scored as the final participant in the shootout and the New York recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat Boston on Tuesday night.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 37 shots, plus three of the four attempts in the shootout. Carl Hagelin scored for the second straight game, and Derek Stepan and Anton Stralman each added an unassisted goal for the Rangers.

Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for the Bruins, who have three losses this season and two of them are to the Rangers after regulation.

David Krejci made it 3-1 with 11 minutes left, then Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand scored in the final 91 seconds to send the game into overtime.

The Rangers broke a scoreless tie midway through the first period when Rick Nash stickhandled through two defensemen and slid the puck over to Hagelin, who had an empty half of a net to shoot at. Stepan stole the puck at center ice and snapped a shot past Rask to make it 2-0 in the second.

The Rangers started the third period with a two-goal lead and a two-man advantage. Boston killed off the penalties, but a minute later Stralman floated a seemingly harmless shot toward Rask that got through the goalie's pads and trickled into the net.

Krejci put back a rebound to make it 3-1. Horton scored with 1:31 left in regulation to make it a one-goal game and awaken the sold-out building. Just 48 seconds later, with 43 seconds left in regulation and Rask off for an extra skater, Marchand found the top of the net to tie it.

Hurricanes 4, Devils 2

Jiri Tlusty scored the two goals in the third period and Cam Ward made 26 saves as Carolina snapped New Jersey's five-game winning streak.

Jussi Jokinen and Patrick Dwyer also scored for Carolina.

With Carolina on the power play, Tlusty flipped a shot toward the net that bounced off Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador and over goalie Martin Brodeur at 7:25. Eric Stall picked up an assist, extending his point-scoring streak to 10 games.

Tlusty later added an empty-netter to seal the win.

Ilya Kovalchuk and Ryan Carter scored for the Eastern Conference-leading Devils.

Canadiens 4, Lightning 3 (SO)

Carey Price stopped all three shots in the shootout, David Desharnais had the lone goal in the tiebreaker, and Montreal rebounded after blowing a three-goal lead to beat Tampa Bay.

Victor Hedman scored twice and Sami Salo added a power-play goal during the final six minutes of regulation as the Lightning tied it at 3.

Tampa Bay's Anders Lindback finished with 31 saves.

Brian Gionta, P.K. Subban and Travis Moen scored for the Canadiens. Price stopped 21 shots.

Capitals 6, Panthers 5 (OT)

Troy Brouwer scored 32 seconds into overtime for the Washington, which rallied from a late two-goal deficit.

Washington trailed 5-3 before Eric Fehr scored on a redirect at 14:53 of the third period. Alex Ovechkin then scored a power-play goal with 2:49 left to tie it.

Florida rookie Jonathan Huberdeau had his first multigoal game, and Drew Shore scored his first NHL goal. Tomas Fleischmann and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, and Scott Clemmensen made 23 saves.

Senators 2, Sabres 0

Craig Anderson made 42 saves and Erik Karlsson and Erik Condra scored goals less than two minutes apart in the second period as Ottawa defeated Buffalo.

Predators 1, Sharks 0 (OT)

Colin Wilson scored at 2:08 of overtime, and Nashville snapped a two-game skid. Pekka Rinne made 25 saves for his second shutout this season in a game in which Nashville set a franchise mark for offensive futility before Wilson scored.
