NEW YORK (AP) -Chris Kelly scored all three goals for Ottawa, including the go-ahead tally with 2:24 remaining in the Senators' 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night.

Kelly scored a short-handed goal in the second period and completed his hat trick into an empty net in the game's final second. Kelly doubled his season goal total to six.

Pascal Leclaire made 25 saves for his second win of the season for Ottawa, which won for just the third time in 11 games. The struggling Senators (12-14-2) had been shut out in their previous two games at home.

Brandon Prust scored a short-handed goal for the Rangers (16-12-1), who lost for only the third time in nine games. Henrik Lundqvist finished with 22 saves.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Daniel Briere scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:44 left and Philadelphia held on to beat the New York Islanders yet again.

Matt Carle and Andreas Nodl also scored for Philadelphia, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots for the win.
