    Hurricanes 2, Lightning 1 (OT)

    Martin Necas scored from the left circle 3:26 into overtime and the Carolina Hurricanes won their 10th game of the season, 2-1 over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

    Carolina also got a goal from Teuvo Teravainen.

    The Hurricanes (10-1-0) set a team record for the fewest games to reach 10 wins. Carolina had its season-opening, nine-game winning streak end Saturday in a 5-2 loss at Florida.

    “We knew we needed a bounce-back game,” Carolina defenseman Brady Skjei said. “It was just a great team effort all around. You get the two points against a very good team, the reigning Cup champions, is huge.”

    Carolina got to 10 win in 13 games in both 2020-21 and 2005-06.

    Steven Stamkos scored for the Lightning, who are 4-0-2 in the past six games.

    Skjei appeared to score the winner 1:39 into overtime, but the goal was overturned after video review showed the Hurricanes were offside on the play.

    “I think that was one of the key takeaways for me. You fight back, you feel like you win it, and you don't, you didn't and have to do it again,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “It says a lot about the group. They literally shook it off, better than I did.”

    “They were like 'OK, play a little bit more,” Brind’Amour added. “So, it was a real positive game for us.”

    Both goalies, Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy (29 saves) and Carolina's Frederik Andersen (17 saves) had strong performances.

    Teravainen tied it at 1-all at 9:56 of the third on the Hurricanes' fifth power play. Vincent Trocheck set up the goal with a pass through the low slot.

    The goal came after Stamkos was called for interference on the goalkeeper.

    “I think everybody saw what happened,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “He got pushed (by a Carolina defender). But kill it (the power play) off.”

    Mathieu Joseph skated in from the right wing and found Stamkos in the low left circle, where the Lightning captain made it 1-0 with 11 minutes left in the second.

    Vasilevskiy lost a skate blade making a kick save during a Carolina 5-on-3 power play four minutes into second and played on his knees for around a minute before being able to freeze the puck. He got a piece of Andrei Svechnikov’s shot from in-close early in the third.

    Stamkos hit the post and Andersen made a sprawling glove save on Ondrej Palat in the first two minutes of the second.

    Carolina outshot the Lightning 12-3 during a scoreless first period. Both teams had two power plays.

    Tampa Bay failed to score on four power plays.

    Carolina left wing Jordan Martinook wound up flying into the Lightning bench while attempting a first-period check on Tampa Bay defenseman Ryan McDonagh.

    Tampa Bay defenseman Mikhail Sergachev served the final game of a two-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head on Toronto’s Mitch Marner last Thursday.

    Red Wings 4, Oilers 2

    Vladislav Namestnikov scored in the first and second period, leading Detroit past Edmonton.

    The Oilers had won nine of their first 10 games for the first time in franchise history. They went 0 for 2 on the power play after becoming the first team since Pittsburgh in 2007 to open a season with a power-play goal in 10 straight games.

    Dylan Larkin had a goal and Moritz Seider scored into an empty net as the Red Wings won their third straight.

    Jesse Puljujarvi scored on a breakaway with 34.2 seconds left in the second and Connor McDavid added his ninth goal of the season for Edmonton.

    Edmonton goalie Stuart Skinner stopped 35 shots in his season debut, filling in for Mikko Koskinen on the first night of a five-game road trip.

    Kings 3, Canadiens 2 (OT)

    Adrian Kempe scored on a sweeping move at 3:39 of overtime and Los Angeles extended its winning streak to six games with a victory over Montreal.

    Brendan Lemieux and Alex Iafallo also scored for Los Angeles. Cal Petersen made 33 saves for the Kings, who boast the longest current winning streak in the NHL.

    Ben Chiarot and Jake Evans scored for Montreal, which fell to 3-11-1. Jake Allen made 31 saves.

    It was former Canadien Phillip Danault’s first game back at the Bell Centre since signing with the Kings as a free agent.

    Blues 3, Jets 2 (SO)

    Ryan O’Reilly was the only scorer in the shootout and St. Louis beat Winnipeg.

    Eight skaters took shots in the contest, with O’Reilly beating Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who finished with 31 saves.

    Pavel Buchnevich had a goal and assist, and Jordan Kyrou also scored for St. Louis. Blues goalie Jordan Binnington made 39 stops.

    Kyle Connor netted his team-leading ninth goal, and defenseman Neal Pionk scored for Winnipeg.

    Blackhawks 3, Penguins 2 (SO)

    Marc-Andre Fleury made 42 saves and then two more stops in the shootout, and Chicago won again under interim coach Derek King, topping Pittsburgh.

    King took over after Jeremy Colliton was fired Saturday following a 1-9-2 start for a team that began the season with playoff aspirations.

    Seth Jones and Jujhar Khaira scored in regulation for Chicago. Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrincat converted their shootout opportunities.

    Jeff Carter scored twice and Tristan Jarry had 30 saves for Pittsburgh, which lost for the fifth time in six games.

    Golden Knights 4, Kraken 2

    Shea Theodore and Reilly Smith scored 46 seconds apart early in the third period to lift Vegas past Seattle.

    It was the second meeting of the NHL’s two newest franchises. Vegas beat Seattle on opening night, 4-3.

    After a 1-4 start to the season, Vegas is on a 6-2-0 surge.

    Theodore one-timed a pass from Jonathan Marchessault past Kraken goalie Chris Driedger just 30 seconds into the third to break a 2-all tie. Smith scored less than a minute later when he deflected a one-touch pass from Marchessault on a power play.

    Alex Pietrangelo and Evgeni Dadanov also scored for the Golden Knights (7-6-0). Robin Lehner, who has won three straight and five of his last six starts, made 25 saves.

    Jordan Eberle and Yanni Gourde scored for Seattle (4-8-1). Driedger, making his first start and second appearance of the season, stopped 19 shots.

    Ducks 3, Canucks 2 (OT)

    Troy Terry scored 3:52 into overtime to give Anaheim a win over Vancouver.

    Cam Fowler and Isac Lundestrom scored in regulation for the Ducks, who extended their win streak to five games.

    J.T. Miller and Elias Pettersson had third-period goals for the Canucks. Quinn Hughes and Brock Boeser assisted on both goals.

    Anaheim’s John Gibson made 41 saves. Jaroslav Halak had 28 saves for the Canucks in his third start of the season.

    Sharks 4, Flames 1

    Logan Couture’s third-period goal proved to be the winner, leading San Jose over Calgary.

    Tomas Hertl and Jonathan Dahlen added empty-net goals and Alexander Barabanov also scored for San Jose. Brent Burns had two assists.

    Sharks goalie Adin Hill, who played minor and Junior A hockey in Calgary, stopped 37 shots.

    Calgary’s streak of earning at least a point was stopped at 10 games. The Flames lost in regulation for the first time since their season-opener.

    Milan Lucic scored for Calgary (7-2-3). Jacob Markstrom made 22 saves in the loss.

    San Jose was without head coach Bob Boughner for a fifth straight game because he’s in COVID-19 protocol.
