    National Hockey League

     
                    ***** National Hockey League Game Capsules *****
                                (Thursday, February 26)
     
     
                          Final Score: Buffalo 6, Vancouver 3
     
     Buffalo,  NY  (SportsNetwork.com) - Torrey  Mitchell tallied twice while Brian
     Gionta  picked up a goal and two assists as Buffalo doubled up Vancouver, 6-3,
     on  Thursday. Andrej Meszaros, Chris Stewart and Brian Flynn also lit the lamp
     with Matt Moulson adding a pair of helpers for the Sabres, who have won two in
     a  row ahead of  a five-game road trip. Michal Neuvirth came up with 28 saves.
     Shawn  Matthias, Jannik  Hansen  and  Daniel Sedin  supplied  offense for  the
     Canucks,  who lost for  the third time in their last nine contests. Eddie Lack
     took the loss after allowing five goals on 23 shots for Vancouver, which ended
     its own road swing with a 3-2-0 mark.
     
     
                          Final Score: NY Rangers 4, Arizona 3
     
     New  York,  NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Lee  Stempniak's second goal of the game,
     which  came  with 2:14 remaining,  lifted the New York  Rangers to a 4-3 come-
     from-behind  victory over  the Arizona Coyotes in a matchup of teams headed in
     opposite  directions. Stempniak's two scores and Chris Kreider's second power-
     play  tally of  the night enabled the  Rangers to overcome a 3-1 deficit after
     one period and record their fourth straight win, dealing the scuffling Coyotes
     an  eighth consecutive  loss in the process. Kevin Hayes added two assists and
     Cam  Talbot came up with 37 saves for New York, which improved to 8-0-1 in its
     last  nine and  moved into  a  tie with  the Islanders  atop the  Metropolitan
     Division. The Rangers own two games in hand on their crosstown rivals. Arizona
     was  dealt  another defeat despite a  two-goal effort from Sam Gagner and Mike
     Smith's 34 saves, with Mark Arcobello also scoring in the setback.
     
     
                          Final Score: Montreal 5, Columbus 2
     
     Columbus,  OH  (SportsNetwork.com) - P.K. Subban  had a goal with two assists,
     Jacob De La Rose scored the first two goals of his NHL career and the Atlantic
     Division-leading  Montreal  Canadiens topped the  Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2 on
     Thursday night at Nationwide Arena. Carey Price earned a franchise-record 10th
     consecutive  road  win with  a 25-save performance.  Max Pacioretty potted his
     30th  goal of the season for the Canadiens, who have won three games in a row.
     Curtis  McElhinney  gave up  four goals on  26 shots as  the Blue Jackets lost
     their fourth straight game.
     
     
                         Final Score: Toronto 3, Philadelphia 2
     
     Toronto,  ON (SportsNetwork.com)  - Jonathan Bernier came up with 47 saves and
     Dion Phaneuf returned from injury to record the deciding power-play goal early
     in the third period as Toronto nipped Philadelphia, 3-2, at Air Canada Centre.
     Tyler  Bozak and  Phil Kessel each posted  a goal and one assist for the Maple
     Leafs, winners of two straight after dropping five in a row. Claude Giroux and
     Brayden  Schenn scored  for the Flyers, who dropped back-to-back road games to
     Carolina  and Toronto  after beating Nashville and Washington over the weekend
     at home. Steve Mason suffered the loss in relief, charged with the final Leafs
     goal  on nine shots. Rob Zepp worked the first 25-plus minutes and gave up two
     scores on eight shots.
     
     
                           Final Score: Chicago 3, Florida 0
     
     Sunrise,  FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Corey Crawford made 20 saves for his second
     shutout of the season and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Florida Panthers 3-0
     to sweep a home-and-home set. The Blackhawks beat Florida 3-2 in a shootout on
     Tuesday  to  snap a  three-game  losing  streak  and punctuate  an  eight-game
     homestand  in which  they went 3-2-3. But they lost star forward Patrick Kane,
     who  suffered a broken collarbone when he was cross-checked into the boards by
     Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic in the first period. The player called up to
     take Kane's place on the roster, 20-year-old prospect Teuvo Teravainen, scored
     just  over three  minutes into Thursday's game to give the Blackhawks the only
     goal  they needed.  Crawford made four saves  in the first period, nine in the
     second  and stopped  seven shots  in the  third for  the 12th  shutout of  his
     career.  Brandon  Saad and Jonathan Toews  also scored. Roberto Luongo gave up
     two  goals on  28 shots for Florida.  The Panthers have scored just four total
     goals  during a  four-game  losing streak  (0-3-1) and  hope  the addition  of
     Jaromir  Jagr  can help their chances  to make the playoffs. They acquired the
     43-year-old veteran forward from the New Jersey Devils on Thursday in exchange
     for  two draft picks.  Jagr, who is sixth on the all-time goals list with 716,
     will play for his eighth NHL team when he suits up for the Panthers.
     
     
                       Final Score: St. Louis 2, Winnipeg 1 (SO)
     
     Winnipeg,  MB (SportsNetwork.com)  - Alexander Steen scored in the third round
     of  the shootout  to lift the St.  Louis Blues over the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1, on
     Thursday. Patrik Berglund scored in regulation for the Blues, who have won six
     in a row against the Jets. Brian Elliott made 30 saves. Mark Scheifele lit the
     lamp  for the Jets, who have dropped three of four. Michael Hutchinson stopped
     28-of-29 shots.
     
     
                         Final Score: Minnesota 4, Nashville 2
     
     Nashville,  TN  (SportsNetwork.com) - Nino Niederreiter scored the tiebreaking
     goal  midway through the game and added an empty-netter with 1:39 remaining to
     help  the  Minnesota Wild  earn  a  4-2  win  over the  NHL-leading  Nashville
     Predators  on Thursday.  Erik Haula and Kyle  Brodziak each had a goal and one
     assist  for  Minnesota, which improved  to 14-3-2 since acquiring Devan Dubnyk
     last  month. Dubnyk, who  has started all of the Wild's 19 games following the
     trade, stopped 27-of-29 Nashville shots. Mike Fisher had a goal and one assist
     for  the  Predators, who got  26 saves  from Pekka Rinne  in a rare home loss.
     Nashville  had won six straight at Bridgestone Arena and entered a league-best
     26-3-1 as the host.
     
     
                           Final Score: Detroit 3, San Jose 2
     
     San  Jose,  CA (SportsNetwork.com) -  Pavel Datsyuk and Luke Glendening scored
     third-period  goals  to lift the  Detroit Red Wings  over the San Jose Sharks,
     3-2, on Thursday. Teemu Pulkkinen also scored for the Red Wings, who snapped a
     two-game  skid.  Jimmy Howard  made 20  saves. Matt  Irwin and Patrick Marleau
     scored  for  the Sharks,  who have  lost seven in  a row  at home. Antti Niemi
     stopped 32-of-35 shots.
     
     
                          Final Score: Ottawa 1, Los Angeles 0
     
     Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrew Hammond hasn't lost an NHL start.
     Heck,  the 27-year-old  goaltender hasn't even let  a puck get past him in two
     games.  Hammond  was perfect  for the second  night in a  row and Mike Hoffman
     scored his team-leading 21st goal of the season to lead the Ottawa Senators to
     a  1-0 win over  the red-hot Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. The Senators
     ended  the Kings' winning  streak at eight games, one shy of tying a franchise
     record.  They beat the Kings in Los Angeles for the first time in more than 15
     years.  Hammond was the star again, making 35 saves to post a shutout on back-
     to-back  nights. He had 25 stops in a 3-0 win in Anaheim on Wednesday night to
     record  the first shutout  of his career. He is 4-0 in four career NHL starts,
     all in the last 10 days as the stopgap-turned-star of an injury-plagued Ottawa
     goaltending corps.
