NHL roundup: Hurricanes win

Associated Press
From around the NHL…
RALEIGH ó Chad LaRose scored two goals and Cam Ward made 36 saves to lead the Carolina Hurricanes past the Ottawa Senators.
Tuomo Ruutu also scored, and Cory Stillman added a goal in the third period for Carolina, which began the night three points behind eighth-place Buffalo in the Eastern Conference.
LaRose scored late in the first and second periods to help the Hurricanes recover from a 2-0 first-period deficit.
The Hurricanes scored four times on their first 19 shots against Curtis McElhinney despite continued struggles on the power play. Carolina was scoreless on three man-advantages Tuesday, dropping to four for its last 77 on the power play.
Capitals 5, Flyers 4
PHILADELPHIA ó Alexander Seminís shootout goal lifted the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night and pulled them within one point of first place in the Eastern Conference.
Playing without star forward Alex Ovechkin for the first time this season, the Capitals took an early three-goal lead and seemed on their way to tying Philadelphia for the top spot.
But the Flyers scored four straight and earned a point by going into overtime.
Sabres 2, Canadiens 0
MONTREAL ó Ryan Miller made 31 saves for his fourth shutout and Nathan Gerbe scored twice to lead the Buffalo Sabres past the Montreal Canadiens.
Miller recorded his 21st career shutout, his first since a 36-save effort in a 3-0 win over San Jose on Jan. 6.
Gerbe scored for the third game in a row in the second period before adding an empty-net goal for Buffalo, which is currently in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 81 points.
Islanders 5, Lightning 2
TAMPA, Fla. ó Al Montoya made 36 saves, helping the New York Islanders to a victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Nate Thompson put Tampa Bay ahead 61 seconds in, lifting a rebound past Montoya.
But, the Islanders scored four straight goals before Thompson helped set up a goal by Dominic Moore with the Lightning holding a two-man advantage midway through the third period.
Josh Bailey scored first for New York with 10 seconds left on a power play midway through the opening period, depositing a rebound off a shot by Milan Jurcina.
The Islanders took the lead when Kyle Okposo redirected a shot past former teammate Dwayne Roloson at 5:16 of the second.
1:Predators 3, Oilers 1
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ó David Legwand scored a goal and added an assist as the Nashville Predators beat the Edmonton Oilers.
Martin Erat, Patric Hornqvist also scored for Nashville, which has won four straight.
Jordan Eberle scored for Edmonton, which has dropped seven in a row.
The Predators pelted Devan Dubnyk with 15 shots in the first period while holding Edmonton to five shots on goal.
1:Maple Leafs 3, Wild 0
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ó Joffrey Lupul and Mikhail Grabovski each scored goals to get Torontoís top two lines going and lead the Maple Leafs to a victory over Minnesota, stretching the Wildís winless streak to seven games.
Rookie goalie James Reimer posted his third career shutout and won his third straight start, improving to 7-0-1 in his last eight road games and helping Toronto keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.
The 10th-place Maple Leafs, the NHLís second-youngest team, are a long shot with eight games to go and eighth-place Buffalo still five points ahead. But they passed last yearís points total and raised their record after the All-Star break to 14-6-5, a sign of progress for general manager Brian Burkeís group.
