Associated Press
The NHL roundup …
NEW YORK ó Mike Green scored twice to tie the NHL record for defenseman with goals in seven straight games, but the slumping New York Rangers overcame that and beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 in a shootout to snap a five-game losing streak.
Green tied the record set by Boston’s Mike O’Connell in 1983-84.
Lauri Korpikoski, Markus Naslund and Paul Mara also had goals for the Rangers, who hadn’t scored more than three in their previous six games and had been outscored 22-5 during their 0-4-1 skid. Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.
Penguins 2, Sharks 1, SO
PITTSBURGH ó Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby’s hard wrist shot fooled San Jose goalie Brian Boucher for the only goal in the shootout.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 36 shots to help Pittsburgh win for the third time during a four-game homestand. San Jose, coming off a 5-2 win at Boston on Tuesday night in a matchup of the two NHL conference leaders, is 1-2-2 in its last five games.
Devils 4, Islanders 2
NEWARK, N.J. ó Zach Parise had two goals, including the winner, and added two assists to help the New Jersey Devils win for the 11th time in 13 games. Parise has a career-high 34 goals, two more than he had last season.
Senators 3, Sabres 1
BUFFALO, N.Y. ó Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and assist and Ottawa won consecutive games for only the sixth time this season.
Jason Spezza, with only his second goal in nine games, and Shean Donovan also scored for the Senators.
Wild 3, Avalanche 2
ST. PAUL, Minn. ó Antti Miettinen’s one-timer with 1:11 remaining off a pass from former Colorado forward Andrew Brunette was the winner for Minnesota.
Coyotes 1, Stars 0
DALLAS ó Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 33 shots for his eighth career shutout, and Enver Lisin scored in the second period to help Phoenix ended a six-game losing streak.
Blackhawks 3, Thrashers 1
ATLANTA ó Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews scored power-play goals, and Nikolai Khabibulin made 36 saves for Chicago.
