UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Kevin Shattenkirk and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals to lift the St. Louis Blues to 4-3 win over the New York Islanders on Saturday following a puzzling goal reversal call in overtime.
After T.J. Oshie tied it for the Blues with 27 seconds left in regulation, Thomas Vanek appeared to score the winner for the Islanders on the power play with 1:15 left in overtime — but the play was overturned on review at the NHL offices in Toronto.
The puck hit Vanek's skate blade and dribbled past Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak, but a distinct kicking motion that usually negates goals wasn't apparent.
HURRICANES 6, SENATORS 3
It was the third straight win for Carolina, which is 11-0-1 in its last 12 home games against Ottawa.
The result moved the Hurricanes, who had a 4-0 lead in the second period, a point ahead of the Senators in the Eastern Conference standings.
BRUINS 6, FLYERS 1
Claude Giroux scored a power-play goal for the slumping Flyers, who've lost four in a row. They're 2-5-2 in their last nine games, tumbling from second place in the division to eighth in the East. It's their worst stretch since a 1-7 start that saw coach Peter Laviolette fired three games into the season.
Steve Mason allowed four goals on 19 shots and was yanked for the second time in three starts since signing a contract extension last Saturday.
