Jussi Jokinen certainly knows how to make an entrance. The newly acquired Pittsburgh forward scored a goal in regulation in his debut and then added the only tally in the shootout as the Penguins edged the New York Rangers, 2-1, on Friday night. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 34 shots and then stoned Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello and Ryan Callahan in the shootout.   Sabres stop Senators Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored third-period goals 12 seconds apart, and the host Buffalo Sabres rallied to beat the Ottawa Senators, 4-2.

In Canada, they're calling it Nashgate. Turns out, it's much ado about nothing. Near the end of the Canada-Sweden game in the world championships on Saturday, Canada's young power forward Rick Nash, apparently frustrated with contact in front of the net, tried to get the referee's attention. He was caught by a Swedish TV channel fish-hooking the ref on the hip from behind with his stick before pushing a linesman out of the way. Swedish officials waited until yesterday to ask the International Ice Hockey Federation to review the incident, because it seemed deliberate and represented a poor example to youth.

DETROIT - Darren Helm scored with 1 minute, 27 seconds left in the third period, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to an elimination-avoiding 4-3 win over the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinal series on Friday night. The Sharks will take their 3-1 series lead back home with a chance to advance on Sunday night to the NHL's final four. Detroit is trying to become the fourth NHL team to win a series after trailing 3-0. Veteran defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom scored twice in the first period to help the Red Wings take a three-goal lead that they let slip away.

Rick Nash had a goal and an assist in the first period, and Ryan Callahan had a pair of assists as the New York Rangers hung on to eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a 6-1 home victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Derick Brassard and Nash both scored power-play goals, with help from Callahan in the first, and Mats Zuccarello found the net for the second straight game to give the playoff-hopeful Rangers their sixth win in nine games (6-2-1). New York's lackluster, 4-2 loss at the Flyers on Tuesday had allowed Winnipeg to get even in points in the tight Eastern race.

Rangers rookie J.T. Miller fumbled his way to a goal in the third round of a shootout and New York snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night. The 20-year-old Miller skated in slowly on Dan Ellis and briefly lost the puck before calmly gathering it and scoring from a tough angle near the goal line. Rick Nash scored in the opening round of the tiebreaker and Henrik Lundqvist stopped both Carolina tries. The Rangers (14-12-2)

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.

Left winger Lawson Crouse and right winger Travis Konecny, best friends since their early years, could be drafted in the opening round of Friday's NHL draft - and there's even an outside chance both will be selected by the Flyers. Getting drafted in the first round "has been a dream of ours," Konecny said at the scouting combine in Buffalo earlier this month. "I hope we're able to experience that together. . . . As much as we're best friends and help each other, we're also competitive and we push each other.

Rick Nash had two goals and a career-best four points and Pascal Leclaire stopped 28 shots to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets over the road-weary Anaheim Ducks, 4-0. Sergei Fedorov and Ron Hainsey each added a power-play goal and an assist for the Blue Jackets, opening their first full season under coach Ken Hitchcock. The Stanley Cup champion Ducks looked tired and disorganized for the first two periods, which might be expected after they opened the season by splitting two games with Los Angeles in London - England, not Ontario - last weekend.

Rick Nash scored the go-ahead goal to put Canada in the title game of the World Ice Hockey Championships with a 5-4 win over Sweden in Quebec City last night, setting up a championship showdown with Russia tomorrow. Sergei Fedorov scored the opening goal of the game and Evgeni Nabakov stopped 23 shots to lead Russia to a 4-0 win over Finland in the first game of the semifinal doubleheader. It will be the first time Canada and Russia have ever met with the world championship on the line.

The penalty-box attendant lifted the door's latch, freeing the Rangers player onto the ice and prompting a chorus of boos throughout the Wells Fargo Center. It was the conclusion of another listless Flyers power play and another failed attempt for the Flyers to find a spark Friday afternoon in a 3-0 loss. The Flyers had six power plays without scoring a goal - and gave up a shorthanded goal. Despite having an extra skater, the Flyers outshot New York by only 6-5 on their own power plays.

NEW YORK - While a handful of Flyers players were being interviewed after their listless, 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers Wednesday night, general manager Ron Hextall's X-rated screams could be heard in an adjacent room. Hextall apparently was reading the team the riot act after its third straight defeat. The Flyers were dominated, even though they should have gotten an emotional lift because Claude Giroux was able to fight through an ankle injury and play. In addition, the Rangers rested star goalie Henrik Lundqvist and didn't have their top defenseman, Ryan McDonagh, because of a separated shoulder.

CHICAGO - Claude Giroux picked up where he left off last season. His linemate, Jake Voracek, has at least one point in all five games this season, the only Flyer to do so. The last Flyer with points in at least five straight games to start a season was Chris Pronger, back in 2011. Only one player in the NHL - the Rangers' Rick Nash (six) - has more goals than Wayne Simmonds (five). Giroux, Voracek and Simmonds each have seven points on the young season and all three rank in the top 20 in league scoring, despite the fact that Simmonds was held off the scoresheet Saturday night in Dallas.

Looking back, R.J. Umberger knows exactly when he became more than a man, or maybe less of one. It was Sept. 21, 2011. He signed a five-year, $23 million contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets that day. Umberger had scored at least 23 goals in each of his previous three seasons, had emerged as a fixture on the team's power-play and penalty-killing units, and presumed he'd be part of Columbus' core with Rick Nash and Derick Brassard for...

Steve Mason outplayed the great Henrik Lundqvist, Rick Nash didn't score a goal for the Rangers, and the Flyers stopped New York's last 21 power plays. How, then, did the Flyers lose the first-round playoff series in seven games? Quite simply, they didn't have the puck enough, and didn't match the Rangers' speed or defensive excellence. So general manager Paul Holmgren - assuming he stays in the position and doesn't hand the baton to assistant GM Ron Hextall - has a rather substantial to-do list in the offseason.

Flyers coach Craig Berube used the home-ice advantage for favorable matchups Tuesday night, and the best consisted of his third line against the Rangers' most potent line in their playoff series. The defensive play of center Sean Couturier and wingers Matt Read and Jason Akeson against a Rangers line that had been giving them fits was one reason the Flyers are heading to Wednesday's deciding Game 7 at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers' line of center Derek Stepan and wingers Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis was silenced as the Flyers scored a 5-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center.

Former Flyers tough guy Dan Carcillo made a strong impact in his first postseason action against his old team. The winger came out of the penalty box to score the final goal in the New York Rangers' 4-1 win over the Flyers on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. Because he was with the Flyers for three years, including in 2010, when they lost to Chicago in the Stanley Cup Finals, Carcillo admitted that winning against his former team brought an extra bit of satisfaction. "For sure, I played here, I know people on the other side," Carcillo said after Game 3. Carcillo, 29, was acquired by the Rangers from the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 4. He did not dress during eight of his regular-season games with the Rangers and also sat out the first two postseason games.

The Flyers' inability to stop the Rangers line of Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, and Rick Nash has been a story line throughout their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series. It definitely continued during the 4-1 loss to New York on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Rangers have regained home-ice advantage and take a two-games-to-one lead into Game 4 Friday in Philadelphia. The trio has been difficult for the Flyers to contain, at even-strength and on the power play. Stepan scored the first goal Tuesday, less than four minutes into the game, though it came on a gift from goalie Ray Emery.

Forwards FLYERS: Claude Giroux (86 points), Jake Voracek (62) and Wayne Simmonds (60) all posted more points than Rangers' leading scorer Mats Zuccarello (59) this season. The Flyers finished with a league-high seven 20-goal scorers to highlight their depth. On the surface, the Flyers finished tied for fourth in the Eastern Conference in goals scored. But when you take a deeper look at the numbers, they scored just 22 goals in their first 15 games. So, they've really been operating at a 3.19 goals per-game pace in the 67 games since - coinciding with their turnaround - which would have made them tops in the East (262 goals)
