Marian Hossa scored his NHL-leading fifth goal on a power play 1:41 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 comeback win over the host Dallas Stars on Thursday.
With Dallas captain Brenden Morrow in the penalty box for interference, Hossa fired a one-timer from the slot past goalie Kari Lehtonen after receiving a behind-the-back pass from Patrick Kane.
Chicago's offense, which racked up 14 goals in the previous three games, needed the man-advantage to score all three of its goals Thursday.
Part of that was due to an outstanding performance by Lehtonen, who made 38 saves.
Flyers 2, Rangers 1: Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek scored to help host Philadelphia win its first game. The Flyers not only avoided their first 0-4 start in team history, they beat the Rangers for the first time in two seasons. The Rangers won all six games last season.
Avalanche 4, Blue Jackets 0: Matt Duchene scored two goals and set up another, Semyon Varlamov made 33 saves and host Colorado beat Columbus. The Blue Jackets went 0 for 6 on the power play.
Blues 3, Predators
Hurricanes 6, Sabres 3: Eric Staal scored three goals, Jeff Skinner added two and host Carolina earned its first win of the season by handing Buffalo its first loss. Skinner and Staal scored 9 seconds apart during Carolina's four-goal second period.
Canadiens 4, Capitals 1: Andrei Markov had a goal and an assist, and visiting Montreal cruised over Washington, which is 0-3 for the first time in nearly two decades. Markov is healthy after twice tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Senators 3, Panthers 1: Erik Karlsson scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and visiting Ottawa won its third straight game to start the season.
Islanders 7, Maple Leafs 4: Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner scored two goals each, and New York beat host Toronto. The Islanders who overcame a 3-1 first-period deficit.
