The NHL roundup …
WASHINGTON ó Jeff Skinner scored a goal and converted his shootout attempt to lift Carolina to a 4-3 win against Washington.
Skinner’s goal tied the game at 2 less than two minutes into the third period, when his seemingly innocuous shot knuckled past goalie Semyon Varlamov.
Jussi Jokinen also scored for the Hurricanes, and Tuomo Ruutu converted the deciding shootout attempt. Cam Ward had 38 saves.
The Capitals did not convert a shootout chance, Ward stopped shots by Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.
Flyers 5, Penguins 2
PITTSBURGH ó Ville Leino scored twice in the third period, and the Philadelphia Flyers rallied to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 on Tuesday night and stay atop the Eastern Conference.
