DETROIT (AP) — Dylan Larkin scored with 5.1 seconds remaining in overtime, capping an impressive late comeback by the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Friday night.
Andreas Athanasiou, who had tied the game with 2:02 remaining in the third period, backhanded a pass to Larkin, who redirected the puck past Henrik Lundqvist for his seventh goal of the season. The Rangers led 2-0 after two periods but had their four-game winning streak snapped.
Detroit has won five of six after winning just one of its first 10 games.
Kevin Shattenkirk and Neal Pionk scored for New York.
Maple Leafs 6, Devils 1
TORONTO — John Tavares scored his ninth goal of the season, Patrick Marleau had his 600th NHL assist and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils.
Nazem Kadri, Connor Brown, Andreas Johnsson, Morgan Rielly and Tyler Ennis also scored, and Frederik Andersen made 38 saves. Toronto improved to 11-5-0 with its third straight victory.
Marleau was involved in Kadri’s goal, becoming the 88th NHL player to reach the 600 assist milestone. The only other active player with 600 assists is San Jose’s Joe Thornton with 1,032. Marleau scored on a late tip but the goal was waved off un review because of a high stick.
Travis Zajac scored for New Jersey. Playing the sixth game on a seven-game trip, the Devils have won just two of their last 10 games. They are 1-5 on the trip and have been outscored 29-15.
Blue Jackets 2, Capitals 1
WASHINGTON — The Columbus Blue Jackets’ NHL-worst power play scored twice and Sergei Bobrovsky made 33 saves in a victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals.
Oliver Bjorkstrand scored in his return to the lineup and Anthony Duclair had his seventh goal of the season for Columbus, which has three power-play goals during its two-game winning streak. It entered the night 7 of 59 on the power play, an 11.9 percent conversion rate that was last among the league’s 31 teams.
