WASHINGTON (AP) - Evgeni Nabokov stopped 17 shots to hand the Washington Capitals their first shutout of the season, and the New York Islanders got two goals from PA Parenteau in a 3-0 victory Tuesday night.
The last-place Islanders ended Washington's seven-game, home winning streak and denied the Capitals' bid to move past idle Florida into first place in the Southeast Division.
It was the 51st career shutout for the 36-year-old Nabokov and first with New York. He has 301 career wins, including eight this season.
Playing the last of back-to-back games and for the fourth time in six days, the Islanders converted three of 28 shots against Tomas Vokoun, who came in 14-3 with a 2.03 goals-against average in 17 starts at home.
John Tavares extended his point streak to a career-best 10 games with a power-play goal at 12:05 of the first period.
RANGERS 3, PREDATORS 0
NEW YORK (AP) - Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and the New York Rangers stayed atop the NHL standings with a victory over Nashville that stopped the Predators' winning streak at five.
The Rangers had lost two of three entering Tuesday's game following a five-game winning streak.
John Mitchell scored midway through the second period and defenseman Dan Girardi had a goal in the first. Ryan Callahan was awarded a goal when he dived to try to knock the puck into the empty net in the final minute, and Martin Erat dived on top of him.
New York leads the NHL with 62 points.
The Predators have won eight of 10.
LIGHTNING 5, BRUINS 3
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Dominic Moore scored a tiebreaking goal with 3:45 remaining, and Tampa Bay beat Boston.
Moore stopped an 11-game goal drought and put Tampa Bay up 4-3 when he scored on Tim Thomas with a shot from the top of the left circle.
Steven Stamkos added his NHL-leading 31st goal into an empty net during the final minute.
FLYERS 5, WILD 1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Sean Couturier scored a short-handed goal to lead a balanced attack, and Philadelphia topped Minnesota.
Darroll Powe scored against his former team for Minnesota's lone goal.
Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves to earn the win, a day after coach Peter Laviolette reiterated he is the Flyers' No. 1 goaltender. Bryzgalov is having the worst season of his nine-year career while backup Sergei Bobrovsky has far better stats.
The Flyers are 5-2 since losing the Winter Classic to the New York Rangers.
The Wild are 1-5-1 in their past seven games and 2-10-4 since winning seven in a row.
DEVILS 5, JETS 1
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Ilya Kovalchuk scored two goals, giving him seven in six games, and New Jersey routed Winnipeg.
Martin Brodeur made 20 saves in recording his 14th win of the season and second over Winnipeg in four days. He came into the third period within reach of his first shutout of the season, but was beaten on a blast by defenseman Tobias Enstrom with 11:42 to play.
Brodeur, who has an NHL-record 116 shutouts, hasn't had a clean sheet since blanking Pittsburgh on March 25.
BLUE JACKETS 4, OILERS 2
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Derek MacKenzie scored 32 seconds into the third period to help Columbus rally from a two-goal deficit and beat Edmonton.
The defeat in a matchup of the teams at the bottom of the Western Conference could be particularly costly for the Oilers, who lost Taylor Hall for the game during warm-ups when he collided with a teammate and fell. Hall cut his head on another teammate's skate and couldn't play.
SENATORS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2
Anderson is 7-1-1 with a .945 save percentage this month.
The Senators have climbed to fifth in the Eastern Conference and hold a nine-point advantage over the ninth-place Leafs.
Kyle Turris also scored for Ottawa, which hasn't dropped consecutive games in regulation since Nov. 9 and 11.
PENGUINS 2, HURRICANES 1, SO
Evgeni Malkin netted his 22nd goal of the season for the Penguins, and then scored to lead off the shootout as Pittsburgh won its third straight.
Ward made 40 saves for the Hurricanes, and Jamie McBain scored his fourth goal of the season, but Carolina struggled on the power play and couldn't take advantage of a couple of great chances against Fleury in overtime.
RED WINGS 3, STARS 2, SO
Hudler put on a nifty move to fake rookie Richard Bachman out of position and tucked the puck into the right side of the net.
Brenden Morrow and Eriksson scored in regulation for Dallas, 1-3-1 in its last five.
Tomas Holmstrom and Hudler had regulation goals for Detroit, which has won four straight, including a 5-0 home win over Buffalo on Monday.
