[January 28, 2020]
Dallas' Jamie Benn capped a
two-goal night with an overtime tally as the Stars broke Tampa Bay
goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy's 10-game winning streak in a 3-2 victory
over the visiting Lightning on Monday night.
Benn stole a clearing pass by Brayden Point in the extra period, and
he chipped the puck past Point. He then deked Vasilevskiy for the
unassisted winner at 2:07 of the three-on-three session.
Denis Gurianov scored, and Tyler Seguin, Esa Lindell and Blake
Comeau produced assists for Dallas, which improved to 16-7-2 at home
and swept the two-game season series with Tampa Bay. Stars goalie
Ben Bishop stopped 23 shots.
Steven Stamkos notched two goals, Nikita Kucherov chipped in two
assists, and Jan Rutta and Victor Hedman added helpers for the
Lightning, who fell to 3-6-3 against the Central Division.
Vasilevskiy made 32 saves.
Sharks 4, Ducks 2
Patrick Marleau and Stefan Noesen scored two goals each to help San
Jose end a three-game losing streak with a win against visiting
Marleau's first goal was his 1,100th point with the Sharks. His
second goal moved him past Rod Brind'Amour for 50th on the NHL's
all-time points list (1,185). San Jose goalie Aaron Dell made 26
Ondrej Kase scored short-handed, Nick Ritchie scored on a late power
play, and John Gibson made 27 saves for the Ducks, who lost for the
fifth time in seven games.
Canucks 3, Blues 1
J.T. Miller scored twice as Vancouver extended its home-ice unbeaten
streak with a win over St. Louis.
The Canucks are 9-0-0 in their past nine home games, tying the
fourth-longest home winning streak in franchise history. The streak
has powered Vancouver to a 12-3-0 record in its past 15 games, and
to first place in the Pacific Division.
St. Louis dropped to 0-2-1 in its past three games. The Blues took
their first regulation loss of the season (21-1-6) after scoring
first in the game. Zach Sanford scored for St. Louis. Bo Horvat
netted an empty-net goal for Vancouver.
Maple Leafs 5, Predators 2
Rasmus Sandin scored his first career goal to cap a two-point
performance as visiting Toronto topped Nashville.

William Nylander scored a goal in his fourth consecutive contest and
also set up Sandin's tally for the Maple Leafs, who posted just
their second win in seven games. Zach Hyman collected a goal and an
assist, Jason Spezza and Auston Matthews also scored goals, and
Frederik Andersen finished with 34 saves as Toronto avenged a pair
of shutout loss to the Predators last season.
Mikael Granlund and Viktor Arvidsson scored for Nashville, and Pekka
Rinne stopped 26 shots.
Capitals 4, Canadiens 2
Jakub Vrana and Tom Wilson each had a goal and an assist, and Braden
Holtby stopped 31 shots to lead visiting Washington over Montreal.
Vrana now has eight goals to go along with three assists during a
nine-game point streak. Travis Boyd and Nicklas Backstrom also
scored goals for the Capitals, who won their fourth straight game
while improving their road record to an NHL-best 19-6-1.
Jeff Petry and Dale Weise scored goals for the Canadiens, who had a
two-game win streak snapped. Carey Price finished with 36 saves.
Devils 4, Senators 3 (SO)
Kyle Palmieri scored the tying goal late in the third period, and
New Jersey prevailed in a shootout to snap a three-game skid with a
victory at Ottawa.
Palmieri, who has 13 points in 14 games, tied the score at 3 when he
buried a touch pass from Jesper Bratt off a rebound with 3:21 left
in regulation. Nikita Gusev and Jack Hughes then scored in the
shootout, and New Jersey goalie Mackenzie Blackwood stopped attempts
by Anthony Duclair and Drake Batherson.
Blackwood finished with 35 saves. Marcus Hogberg stopped a
career-high 50 shots for Ottawa, which failed in a bid to win
consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 19-22.
