Alexander Semin netted his 200th NHL goal and Jiri Tlusty scored twice and had two assists for the Carolina Hurricanes, who scored four third-period goals and overcame three deficits and a poor night of penalty-killing to send the New York Islanders to their fifth straight loss, 6-4, on Monday in Uniondale, N.Y. Jackets wallop Sharks Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and an assist and the Columbus Blue Jackets had their biggest offensive output...

Bruins edge the Canadiens Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2 minutes, 5 seconds of the third period, lifting the visiting Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Months after asking the Columbus Blue Jackets to trade him, forward Rick Nash had his wish granted and is headed to the New York Rangers. Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson announced Monday the club had dealt the big right winger, the team's captain and career leader in most offensive categories, along with a 2013 third-round draft pick and a minor-league defenseman. In return, the Rangers sent centers Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, defenseman Tim Erixon, and a first-round pick next year.

NEW YORK - The New York Rangers have survived their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series, finally taking advantage of home ice.

Chris Neil scored 1 minute, 17 seconds into overtime, and the Ottawa Senators rallied for a wild 3-2 victory over the host New York Rangers in Game 2 to even the first-round Eastern Conference series Saturday night. Neil got to a loose puck in front off a rebound and backhanded the puck past goalie Henrik Lundqvist. The top-seeded Rangers seemed poised to grab a two-games-to-none series lead when Brian Boyle scored in the third period, but Nick Foligno tied it with 4:37 left in regulation.

BRANDON DUBINSKY scored shortly after a fight-filled opening faceoff, and the New York Rangers became the first Eastern Conference team to earn a playoff spot by beating the visiting New Jersey Devils, 4-2, last night. Three fights broke out at the outset and that seemed to jump-start the Rangers, who had lost two straight and five of seven as their once-commanding lead in the East dwindled to almost nothing. Defenseman Dan Girardi scored in the first minute of the second period, and Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan added goals for the Rangers, who lead the Penguins by three points.

Brandon Dubinsky scored shortly after a fight-filled opening faceoff, and the host New York Rangers became the first Eastern Conference team to earn a playoff spot by beating the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, on Monday night. Three fights broke out at the outset and that seemed to jump-start the Rangers, who had lost two straight and five of seven as their once commanding lead in the East dwindled to almost nothing. Bruins shut out Leafs Benoit Pouliot scored two goals, Brian Rolston had a goal and three assists and the host Boston Bruins completed a six-game season sweep of the Toronto Maple Leafs with a 8-0 win. The Bruins' superiority was so complete that after two periods they had as many goals as the Maple Leafs had shots.

NEW YORK - With wins Saturday and Sunday, the Flyers could have climbed to the top of the Eastern Conference and Atlantic Division. Instead, it turned into the Lost Weekend. Left winger Artem Anisimov, who had been pointless in 17 consecutive games, had a goal and two assists as the first-place New York Rangers outlasted the Flyers, 5-2, in a physical, fight-filled game at Madison Square Garden. Rangers all-star goalie Henrik Lundqvist made the big saves. The Flyers' Ilya Bryzgalov did not. Coming off Saturday's 6-4 loss to New Jersey, the Flyers are as close to seventh-place Ottawa in the East as they are to first place.
