Landeskog scores in return, Avalanche beat Canadiens
Cayden Primeau stopped 32 shots in his NHL debut. The 20-year-old son of former NHL player Keith Primeau played in the first of a back-to-back for Montreal, with Carey Price set to face the New York Rangers on Friday night.
Toews picked up the puck after a turnover by David Pastrnak and skated in on Tuukka Rask before backhanding it between the goalie’s legs. The crowd, which thought Pastrnak had been tripped, began showering the ice with garbage.
Robin Lehner made 37 saves for the Blackhawks, who had lost six of their previous seven games. Ryan Carpenter and Dylan Strome scored 37 seconds apart at the end of the first period, and Alex DeBrincat scored off the opening faceoff of the third period to make it 3-0 — the first three-goal deficit Boston had faced all season.
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Ryan Pulock scored a power-play goal 3:20 into overtime to lift New York past Vegas.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 31 shots for his ninth win of the season.
Marchessault was sent off for tripping at 3:10 of OT, giving the Islanders a 4-on-3 advantage. That led to Pulock’s goal after New York won the faceoff in the Vegas zone.
Svechnikov had the only goal of the tiebreaker, beating Aaron Dell with a forehand to his stick side in the third round. Mrazek, who had stopped Kevin Labanc and Erik Karlsson in the first two rounds, then stuffed Logan Couture with his pads and stick to end it.
Marcus Sorensen scored and Couture added a deflected goal for the Sharks.
RANGERS 3, BLUE JACKETS 2
Panarin’s goal was his team leading 13th. He left Columbus after signing a lucrative free-agent contract in the offseason with New York.
