Final Score: Winnipeg 4, Columbus 2
Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Hutchinson made 32 saves, Evander
Kane scored two goals and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2
on Tuesday night. Both of Kane's tallies came on the power play, including an
empty-netter with less than a minute left to seal the win. Andrew Ladd scored
the eventual game-winner for the Jets in the second period, just 31 seconds
after Kane's first goal of the game. Bryan Little gave Winnipeg a 1-0 lead
just nine seconds into the game with his seventh goal of the season, but a
Jordan Leopold power-play goal for Columbus tied the game minutes later. Ryan
Johansen added a goal for the Blue Jackets in the third period and Sergei
Bobrovsky made 28 saves in the loss.
Final Score: Ottawa 3, St. Louis 2 (SO)
St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Alex Chiasson's goal with 41 seconds left
in the third period tied the game, and Bobby Ryan was the only player to score
in the shootout of Ottawa's 3-2 win over St. Louis. Senators goalie Robin
Lehner made 27 saves in the win. Blues goalie Brian Elliott made 16 saves
on 16 shots before leaving with a lower body injury, and he was relieved by
Jake Allen, who made 15 saves on 17 shots. Ian Cole and Erik Condra scored
their first goals of the season for St. Louis and Ottawa, respectively, and
Alexander Steen scored a Blues power play goal in the second period.
Final Score: Nashville 4, Los Angeles 3 (SO)
Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - James Neal netted the lone goal in the
shootout, as Nashville outlasted Los Angeles, 4-3, at Bridgestone Arena. None
of the first 10 shooters were able to put the puck into the net. Neal
opened up the sixth round by beating Martin Jones between the pads, and
then Pekka Rinne closed off the lane along the ice to deny Dwight King's
chance and end the contest. Craig Smith, Ryan Ellis and Eric Nystrom
tallied in regulation for the Predators, who have won two in a row and
seven of their last nine. Rinne ended up with 18 saves. Jamie McBain, Marian
Gaborik and Drew Doughty scored for the Kings, who have lost both contests
in a three-game road trip which ends on Wednesday in Minnesota. Jones
made 30 stops in helping the visitors gain a point.
Final Score: Dallas 3, Edmonton 2
Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyler Seguin scored twice as the Dallas
Stars held off the struggling Edmonton Oilers for a 3-2 victory on Tuesday.
Rookie defenseman John Klingberg finished with a goal and an assist for the
Stars, who won their third straight game. Kari Lehtonen turned aside 35 shots
in the win. Boyd Gordon and Taylor Hall each lit the lamp for Edmonton, which
received 30 saves from Viktor Fasth in defeat. Edmonton dropped its seventh
consecutive game and fell to 0-11-1 against Western Conference opponents
this season. The Oilers also dropped into 30th place in the NHL by virtue
of one more regulation loss than the Blue Jackets and Sabres. All three teams
have 14 points.
Final Score: Colorado 4, Arizona 3 (OT)
Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Danny Briere picked up the deciding goal,
coming with 1:44 remaining in overtime, which allowed Colorado to rally from
an early three-goal deficit and claim a 4-3 victory over Arizona on Tuesday.
Briere had possession along the left-wing boards deep in the hosts' zone and
attempted a cross-ice pass to Zach Redmond, but the puck instead deflected off
the active stick of Martin Hanzal and slid past Mike Smith to end the contest.
Gabriel Landeskog added two goals and Matt Duchene tied the score for the
Avalanche, the basement dwellers in the Central Division who have won
four of their last five. Calvin Pickard earned the win in relief, stopping all
25 shots over the game's final 52:23. Reto Berra started, but was pulled
after allowing three goals on eight chances. Antoine Vermette, Michael Stone
and Tobias Rieder lit the lamp for the Coyotes, losers of two straight
and six of nine. Smith made 30 saves in defeat.
Final Score: Vancouver 2, New Jersey 0
Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Miller halted 20 shots to post his
second shutout of the season, and Vancouver shut down New Jersey, 2-0, at
Rogers Arena on a night the hosts celebrated former defenseman and head coach
Pat Quinn. Alex Burrows and Shawn Matthias supplied offense for the Canucks,
who have won two in a row and eight of their last 10 (8-1-1). Quinn, an
original member of the franchise, died on Monday at the age of 71. He played
two seasons in Vancouver during his nine-year NHL career, then later served
as head coach and general manager, racking up a 141-111-28 record and taking
the club to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1994. Quinn took home the Jack Adams
Trophy as the league's top coach that year. Cory Schneider played well in
defeat, making 34 saves for the Devils, who stumbled to their fourth loss
in five and completed a western Canadian road swing at 1-2-1.
Final Score: Anaheim 3, Calgary 2
Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Beleskey tallied a goal and an assist
as the Anaheim Ducks used a 3-2 victory over Calgary to win their 19th
straight home game against the Flames at Honda Center on Tuesday. Kyle
Palmieri and Corey Perry also scored and Frederik Andersen made 32 saves for
the Ducks, who have not lost at home against Calgary since Jan. 19, 2004. T.J.
Brodie had a goal and an assist and Jiri Hudler lit the lamp for the
Flames, who were coming off a 5-4 shootout win over New Jersey on Saturday.
Jonas Hiller, who spent his first seven seasons between the pipes for the
Ducks, allowed all three goals on 29 shots in his return to Anaheim.
