Darroll Powe, Scott Hartnell, and James van Riemsdyk scored as the Philadelphia Flyers edged New Jersey last night, 3-2, snapping two win streaks by the Devils - eight games overall, and nine straight on the road.
Zach Parise scored in a goal-mouth scramble with 0.6 seconds left in regulation and David Clarkson also had a goal for the Devils, who fell one win short of tying the NHL record of 10 road victories to start the season, set by the 2006-07 Buffalo Sabres.
Claude Giroux had two assists and Ray Emery made 33 saves for the Flyers, who have won six of their last seven.
Blue Jackets 3, Oilers 2 - Jakub Voracek scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout to lift host Columbus over Edmonton.
After Voracek’s goal, Mathieu Garon stopped Gilbert Brule to secure Columbus’s fourth win in five games.
Anton Stralman had a goal and assist and Antoine Vermette also scored for the Blue Jackets.
Lubomir Visnovsky had a goal and assist and Ales Hemsky also tallied for Edmonton. The Oilers, losers of four in a row, have only two wins in their last 12 games.
Penguins 5, Ducks 2 - Bill Guerin ended Pittsburgh’s eight-game streak without a power-play goal by scoring in the first period, Jordan Staal scored shorthanded, and Pittsburgh wrapped up Anaheim’s winless four-game road trip.
Guerin, who turned 39 last week, missed by an assist of having the so-called Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, an assist, and a fight. He fought in the third period with Ryan Getzlaf, who is 14 years younger, trading several punches before Guerin put the Ducks’ alternate captain on his back to earn one of the night’s loudest ovations from the sellout crowd of 17,052.
Guerin’s fifth goal of the season came 5:13 into the first period and halted a streak of 30 straight unsuccessful Penguins power plays that began Oct. 30.
Kings 4, Panthers 3 - Defenseman Jack Johnson scored the only goal in the shootout, and Los Angeles rallied to beat host Florida.
Johnson and Jarrett Stoll scored power-play goals and Randy Jones scored shorthanded for the Kings, who came back from a 2-0 deficit and closed out a five-game road trip at 3-2.
Jonathan Quick finished with 26 saves for Los Angeles, which beat the Panthers for the fifth straight time.
Lightning 4, Coyotes 1 - Vincent Lecavalier had two goals and an assist and Mike Smith made 30 saves as Tampa Bay won in Phoenix.
Alex Tanguay had a goal and two assists and Martin St. Louis also scored for the Lightning, who have recorded points in six straight games - four wins and two overtime losses.
