DALLAS (AP) — Roope Hintz and Joe Pavelski scored 75 seconds apart late in the third period, and the Dallas Stars stopped Pittsburgh’s 10-game win streak with a 3-2 victory over the Penguins on Saturday.

Hintz scored on a backhand at 16:14 after Pavelski converted a rebound at 14:59, sending the Stars to their fourth straight win.

Denis Gurianov also scored and Jake Oettinger stopped 27 shots for Dallas. Jason Robertson assisted on all three goals.

Brian Dumoulin and Kasperi Kapanen scored in a 25-second span early in the first period for the Penguins. Tristan Jarry made 29 saves.

Pittsburgh had the NHL’s longest winning streak this season. It is 18-1-1 when leading after two periods.

PANTHERS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Anthony Duclair scored at 2:53 of overtime and Florida beat Carolina.

Carter Verhaeghe had two goals and Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and an assist as the Panthers extended their point streak to six games (5-0-1). Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 24 shots.

Teuvo Teravainen, Brady Skjei and Seth Jarvis scored for the Hurricanes, who never led. They lost for just the second time in 11 games. Sebastian Aho had two assists and Alex Lyon made 32 saves in his second NHL game of the season.

In the extra period, Duclair’s fifth goal in six games since the holiday break came after a Carolina turnover near the blue line. It was Florida’s first shot in overtime.

BRUINS 5, LIGHTNING 2

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand each scored twice, Linus Ullmark made 27 saves and Boston beat Tampa Bay.

Anton Blidh had the other Boston goal, and Taylor Hall picked up two assists. The Bruins have won four of five in January.

Ondrej Palat and Brayden Point scored, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 25 shots for the Lightning. They are 8-1-1 in their last 10 homes games.

Pastrnak scored twice in the opening 6:10, giving him three goals in the last three games following a nine-game drought.

AVALANCHE 5, MAPLE LEAFS 4, OT

DENVER (AP) — Devon Toews scored 1:12 into overtime and Colorado rallied from a three-goal deficit to beat Toronto for its franchise-record 11th straight home victory.

After Jack Campbell robbed Toews with a diving glove save in the third period, he beat the goaltender between the legs from the left side for his sixth goal of the season. Colorado hasn’t lost at home since Nov. 3 against Columbus and surpassed the previous team record of 10 consecutive home wins set three times before.

Auston Matthews scored twice in 33 seconds in the first period and Nick Ritchie added a goal early in the second two days after being waived to put Toronto ahead 4-1.

But the NHL’s top offense revved up in the third.

Gabriel Landeskog scored his 14th goal to make it 4-3 shortly after Campbell robbed Toews. J.T. Compher tied it at 4 with 8:18 left after a no-look, between-the-legs pass from Mikko Rantanen from behind the net. Rantanen assisted on the last three goals.

Alexander Kerfoot had a goal and two assists, and Campbell finished with 45 saves as the Maple Leafs’ four-game win streak was snapped.

Nathan MacKinnon scored for Colorado to extend the NHL’s longest active point streak to 13 games. Cale Makar added his 15th goal and an assist for the Avalanche, who have won four straight.

Darcy Kuemper was yanked after allowing three goals on eight shots, with Pavel Francouz making 19 saves in relief.

WILD 3, CAPITALS 2, SO

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Kevin Fiala and Frederick Gaudreau scored in the shootout as short-handed Minnesota took advantage of an own-goal by Washington.

Kaapo Kahkonen made 29 saves and stopped two attempts in the tiebreaker for the Wild, who sent the game to overtime on a goal by Mats Zuccarello with 34.7 seconds left in regulation.

Rookie goaltender Zach Fucale made 21 saves for Washington and set an NHL record for the longest shutout streak to open a career at 138 minutes, 7 seconds. Zuccarello snapped the streak.

The Wild wouldn’t have been in position if the Capitals didn’t put the puck in their own net. Playing out a delayed penalty, Washington forward Carl Hagelin had a pass go between two teammates and slide all the way into the empty net on the other side of the ice with Fucale on the bench.

Marcus Foligno was given credit for the Wild goal after being the last Minnesota player to touch the puck before Hagelin’s missed pass. It was Foligno’s 100th career goal.

Connor McMichael and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored for the Capitals before the miscue put Minnesota on the board.

The Wild were down nine regular starters due to COVID-19 and injuries.

BLACKHAWKS 2, GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves against his former team and Chicago defeated Vegas to snap a six-game losing streak.

Jujhar Khaira and Riley Stillman scored for the Blackhawks, who were 0-3-3 in their previous six games.

It was Fleury’s first start against the Golden Knights since being traded in the offseason. He has now beaten all 32 NHL teams in his career.

Fleury, who was with Vegas for its first four seasons in the league, is 9-4-2 across his past 15 games after starting the season with one win in his first eight appearances.

The 18-year veteran and three-time Stanley Cup champion was greeted by a tribute video before the game, which sent the crowd of 18,367 into a frenzy.

Ben Hutton scored the lone goal for Vegas, and Robin Lehner made 19 saves.

SHARKS 3, FLYERS 2, OT

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tomas Hertl completed his hat trick 24 seconds into overtime to lift San Jose over Philadelphia.

Brent Burns assisted on all three goals and Timo Meier had two assists for the Sharks, who finished a 2-2 road trip. Adin Hill stopped 29 shots.

James van Riemsdyk scored both goals for the Flyers, who have lost five in a row. Martin Jones made 44 saves.

In the extra period, Hertl beat Jones on a 2-on-1 for his team-leading 20th goal, giving him 18 points (12 goals, six assists) over the last 12 games. He also had the overtime winner in the Sharks’ 3-2 home victory over Philadelphia on Dec. 30.

BLUE JACKETS 4, DEVILS 3

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Oliver Bjorkstrand scored twice to lead Columbus over New Jersey, halting a three-game skid.

Boone Jenner and Igor Chinakhov also scored for the Blue Jackets, who rebounded from Thursday’s loss at New Jersey and beat the Devils on home ice for the sixth straight time.

Jakub Voracek and Adam Boqvist each had two assists. Joonas Korpisalo stopped 27 shots for his first win since Nov. 22.

Nico Hischier, Jimmy Vesey and Marian Studenic scored for New Jersey. Mackenzie Blackwood made 30 saves.

Bjorkstrand broke a 3-all tie exactly five minutes into the third period with his second goal of the night.

PREDATORS 4, COYOTES 2

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Roman Josi had a goal and an assist, Juuse Saros stopped 37 shots and Nashville jumped on Arizona early.

Nashville played without leading scorer Filip Forsberg, who was placed in COVID-19 protocol just before the game.

The Predators were just fine without him against the last-place Coyotes, scoring three first-period goals in a chippy game that featured 25 penalties for 38 minutes.

Mattias Ekholm, Yakov Trenin and Tanner Jeannot also scored for Nashville, which has won 12 of 15.

Clayton Keller and Lawson Crouse scored in the third period for Arizona. Karel Vejmelka had 25 saves.

RANGERS 4, DUCKS 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Lindgren scored twice in the third period after Jarred Tinordi got credit for the tiebreaking goal in New York’s victory over Anaheim.

Mika Zibanejad also scored, Alexandar Georgiev made 13 saves and the Rangers rallied for four unanswered goals to move into a tie with Carolina for the Metropolitan Division lead with their fourth victory in five games.

Tinordi, a journeyman defenseman playing his sixth game with New York, got his second career goal and first since January 2020 early in the third period when his long shot deflected in off the stick of Jacob Perreault, the Ducks’ 19-year-old prospect making his NHL debut.

Lindgren then scored on a high shot through traffic, and he added an empty-netter in the final minute for his first career two-goal game.

Isac Lundestrom scored and Anthony Stolarz stopped 36 shots in his first loss since Oct. 28 for the Ducks, who failed to earn a point at home for the first time in seven games since November. Anaheim has lost four of five since the holiday break.

New York outshot the Ducks 40-14 — the Rangers haven’t allowed fewer since holding New Jersey to 13 in February 2012.

KINGS 4, RED WINGS 0

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cal Petersen stopped 21 shots for his second career shutout in his first start in more than a month, and Los Angeles rolled past Detroit.

Phillip Danault and Drew Doughty scored in the first period. Adrian Kempe had a short-handed goal, Trevor Moore added an empty-netter and the Kings won for the third time in four games.

Alex Nedeljkovic allowed three goals on 40 shots for the Red Wings, who have lost four in a row on the road.
