Pastrnak scored 3 goals, Bruins beat winless Red Wings 8-2
BOSTON (AP) — David Pastrnak scored three times, giving him 101 goals in his career, and Patrice Bergeron had three assists as the Boston Bruins kept Detroit winless with an 8-2 victory over the Red Wings on Saturday.
It was the second career hat trick for Pastrnak, who has scored seven times in five games this season.
Tuukka Rask had 32 saves to help Boston win its fourth straight while outscoring opponents 20-6 since getting shut out by Washington 7-0 in the season opener.
Eakin ended the scoreless tie with a sensational sequence for the winner. He made a dive for the puck to keep it away from Flyers center Sean Couturier in Philly’s end of the ice. Ryan Carpenter snared the puck and passed it back to Eakin, who fired it from the circle past Brian Elliott for the winner.
Elliott was pulled to give the Flyers the man-advantage and they still couldn’t solve Fleury.
Fleury earned his first shutout and second win of the season for the Western Conference champions. The Golden Knights had been in a bit of a sophomore slump with a 1-4 start that included an opening-night home loss to the Flyers.
The 21-year-old McDavid, who has led the league in points each of the past two seasons, has points on all five Oilers goals in three games this season.
Mika Zibanejad opened the scoring for the Rangers at 12:49 of the first period. Nugent-Hopkins tied the contest at 14:17, tapping a rebound past Lundqvist for his first this season.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Sebastian Aho scored his second goal of the game in overtime to lift Carolina.
Aho added an assist while running his point streak to five games. Jordan Staal and Brett Pesce also scored for the Hurricanes. Curtis McElhinney made 19 saves as Carolina outshot Minnesota 57-23 and survived a third-period frenzy in which the Wild rallied to twice take a one-goal lead.
Devan Dubnyk stopped 52 shots for Minnesota and Jason Zucker scored his 100th career goal and third in the past two games. Charlie Coyle, Jared Spurgeon and Mikael Granlund also scored for the Wild, who played their third consecutive overtime game.
The Lightning, who led the NHL in goals last season, had scored just twice over 125 minutes in their first two games. Tampa Bay was held scoreless during the final 159:27 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Final by eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington.
Moments after Andersen made several solid saves to preserve the lead, Matthews provided an insurance score with his NHL-leading 10th goal with 1:39 to play.
Josh Leivo scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period. Kasperi Kapanen had a goal and an assist and Par Lindholm also scored for Toronto, which has won four straight. Jake Gardiner had two assists.
Matthews has scored a goal in all six games this season and has multiple points in each. He also has four assists and joined Sweeny Schriner (1944-45) as the only Maple Leafs to score a goal and have multiple points in the first six games of the season.
Horvat gave the Canucks their first lead when he took a nifty pass from Sven Baertschi in the left circle and sent a one-timer in at 6:11 of the final period.
After Byron and Drouin both beat DeSmith blocker side in the shootout, Sidney Crosby had to score for Pittsburgh to send it to the third round but he hit the outside of the post.
The Canadiens beat the Penguins for the second time in eight days, winning 5-1 in Pittsburgh last Saturday.
The Predators jumped ahead with three goals in a 4 1/2-minute stretch late in first period. Nelson and Ladd got the Islanders within one in the second, before Nashville sealed the win in the third.
Radek Faksa added a length-of-the-ice, empty-net goal with 1:28 to play.
Gibson made 40 saves while playing the first two periods. Ryan Miller had six in the third.
Anton Khubodin stopped 22 shots for Dallas.
Arizona failed to score for the third time in their first four games — including the second time at home.
Wideman tore a hamstring last November and missed the rest of the season. The 28-year-old had been without a point in his first four games this season.
Trevor Lewis scored for the Kings. Jack Campbell made his fourth consecutive start for Los Angeles and allowed four goals on 11 shots before being replaced by Peter Budaj. Budaj allowed one goal on 11 shots.
Lindholm sent the game into OT by forcing a turnover in the Colorado zone and taking the puck up close and firing it past goalie Semyon Varlamov for the equalizer.
Colorado, which led 2-0 after the first period, couldn’t stop Gaudreau on a breakaway. He got behind the Avalanche defense and knocked home the game-winner from up close.
Calgary broke through for its first a goal at 10:52 of the second to pull to within 2-1. Varlamov stopped a shot from Mikael Backlund but the puck popped loose in front of the net. Sam Bennett charged through the slot and got his stick on the puck, shoving it into the net for the score.
