McDavid scores 2, Oilers beat Flames 8-3 as goalies fight
Kailer Yamamoto had a goal and an assist for the Oilers, who have won two straight games since losing 4-3 in a shootout at home to the Flames on Wednesday.
Mikko Koskinen played the final 20:24 of the game in net for the Oilers and stopped all eight shots he faced.
David Rittich started in net for Calgary, but was pulled 3:18 into the second period after allowing four goals on 17 shots. Talbot then made 21 saves in a relief appearance before being ejected from the game for the secondary fight with Smith. Rittich then went back in and made nine more saves.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Jack Eichel scored 36 seconds into overtime, and Buffalo stopped Columbus’ six-game win streak.
Eichel controlled the puck in making his way up the ice from his own zone. He then circled from the left side to the right circle and snapped a shot past Matiss Kivlenieks.
Oliver Bjorkstrand scored for Columbus, which was coming off a nine-day break. It was his fifth goal in three games since missing 13 with a rib injury.
It was Price’s third shutout of the season and No. 47 of his career. Petry recorded his first career four-point game.
Hughes sent a wrist shot past Greiss for the winning goal. It was the first career multigoal game for the 20-year-old defenseman.
The Jets snapped a five-game losing streak and are 12-12-2 at home this season.
Ryan O’Reilly and Brayden Schenn scored for St. Louis.
The Rangers also beat Detroit at home on Friday night and have won six of nine games.
Detroit has lost eight straight games for the third time this season and has at least 15 fewer points than the rest of the league.
Kevin Rooney and Nico Hischier scored for New Jersey, while Domingue stopped 28 shots. New Jersey, well out of the playoff chase in the Eastern Conference, has picked up points in its last three contests (1-0-2).
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kevin Hayes and Joel Farabee scored two goals each and seldom-used reserve goaltender Alex Lyon made 28 saves to earn his first win in nearly two years as Philadelphia beat Colorado.
Sean Couturier assisted on three of the Flyers goals, including when he capitalized on a sloppy Colorado turnover eight minutes into the third period, stole a pass, and fed Farabee for a goal that would eventually count as the winner, putting the Flyers up 4-2.
The Golden Knights have won two straight, including at Carolina on Friday night. Vegas held Nashville to its lowest shots on goal total of the season at 19 and ended the Predators‘ two-game winning streak.
Fleury finished his third shutout of the season and 59th in his career, breaking a tie with Nashville’s Pekka Rinne and tying Evgeni Nabokov for 18th all-time. Rinne stopped 36 of 38 shots.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — NHL scoring leader David Pastrnak matched his career high with his 38th goal, Torey Krug scored twice and Boston had three power-play goals in the second period to surge past Minnesota.
Pastrnak, who also had two assists, broke a tie on the league leader board with Washington’s Alex Ovechkin. After tallying 35 goals in 82 games in 2017-18 and 38 goals in just 66 games in 2018-19, the 23-year-old right wing from the Czech Republic reached 38 goals in his 53rd game this season.
Brad Richardson and Conor Garland scored for the Coyotes, who have lost five straight and are 1-5-3 in their last nine games. Arizona has lost all three games out of the break, including back-to-back overtime games at home.
Goaltender Antti Raanta had 42 saves, including a dramatic save of Saad’s backhander at 14:29 of the third period. Raanta was on his stomach and flipped his back legs and skates in the air to deflect the puck — like a scorpion.
It is the 42nd time in Miller’s 17-year career that he has made over 40 saves in a game, but only the 19th in which his team has won in regulation. It is also the second-most saves he has made in a regulation victory.
The only goal Miller allowed came with 2:39 remaining in the second when Tyler Toffoli’s slap shot from the right circle on the power play trickled under his legs.
Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for Los Angeles, which has dropped nine of its last 11.
McElhinney had 30 saves as the Lightning won their third straight and 15th in 18 games. They improved to 8-0 against the Pacific Division.
Kucherov and Stamkos, who also had an assist, each extended their point streaks to seven games.
Aaron Dell turned back 26 shots for San Jose, which lost for the fifth time in six games after going 5-2-1 over its previous eight.
McElhinney recorded his first shutout in 21 games going back to Feb. 23 of last year in a 3-0 win over Dallas.
