Carolina center Sebastian Aho
scored the game-winning goal just 76 seconds into overtime, spoiling
the return of former teammate Cam Ward as the Hurricanes defeated
the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Monday night in Raleigh, N.C.
Aho was patient on the game-winning sequence as he waited out Ward,
who played the previous 13 seasons for Carolina, to deliver the
winning shot and help the Hurricanes complete a rally from a
Teuvo Teravainen and Micheal Ferland scored rapid-fire goals in the
second period as the Hurricanes, who won for only the second time in
an eight-game stretch (2-4-2), wiped out a two-goal hole in a matter
of 66 seconds. Carolina's Scott Darling, who is a former Chicago
goalie, made 33 saves.
The outcome prevented the first NHL victory for new Blackhawks coach
Jeremy Colliton, who took over last week after Joel Quenneville was
fired. Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrincat scored for Chicago, and
Ward made 37 saves.
Ducks 2, Predators 1 (SO)
Rickard Rakell scored the game-winner in the fourth round of the
shootout to give Anaheim the victory over visiting Nashville.
Rakell, who also had an assist in regulation, weaved his way in and
beat Pekka Rinne (29 saves) on his glove side. Anaheim goalie John
Gibson (34 saves) then made a pad save on Kevin Fiala's try to
clinch the Ducks' third win in the last five games.
Ryan Getzlaf scored Anaheim's lone regulation goal. Fiala scored for
Nashville, which had a five-game winning streak snapped and lost for
the first time in nine road games this season.
Rangers 2, Canucks 1
Brett Howden scored the tiebreaking goal a little bit beyond the
midway point of the third period as host New York edged Vancouver.

Filip Chytil also scored for the Rangers, who have won two straight
and six of seven (6-0-1). Goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 25 saves and
earned his 437th career win to tie Jacques Plante for seventh place
on the NHL's all-time list.
Nikolay Goldobin scored for the Canucks, who had their six-game
point streak snapped. Vancouver has dropped three of four (1-1-2) to
begin a six-game road trip. Goalie Jacob Markstrom recorded 25
Blue Jackets 2, Stars 1
Pierre-Luc Dubois scored the deciding goal midway through the third
period despite getting hit in the face with a stick while in the
crease as visiting Columbus defeated Dallas.
Cam Atkinson scored the Blue Jackets' first goal, and netminder
Sergei Bobrovsky turned away 26 of the 27 shots he faced to earn the
win, which granted Columbus the sweep of the season series between
the two teams.
Alexander Radulov, who returned to action after missing 10 of
Dallas' previous 11 games with a lower-body injury, scored for the
Stars, and Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots.
