RALEIGH, N.C. – Joe Corvo had a goal and an assist and the Carolina Hurricanes won their third consecutive game, a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.
Jussi Jokinen scored the go-ahead goal, and Jeff Skinner had two assists for Carolina.
Jordan Staal also scored for the Hurricanes, and his brother Eric Staal extended his point streak to an NHL-leading 11 games with an assist on Corvo’s goal, the first of three for the Hurricanes in the second period.
Nazem Kadri scored for Toronto, which had its four-game winning streak ended.
Dan Ellis made 22 saves for Carolina. Ben Scrivens made 30 saves for Toronto.
ISLANDERS 4, RANGERS 3, SO: In New York, John Tavares scored one of Islanders’ three second-period goals and then netted the winner in a shootout as New York broke a five-game losing streak.
Tavares followed Frans Nielsen’s goal in the opening round of the tiebreaker with one of his own, and Evgeni Nabokov stopped Marian Gaborik and Rick Nash to give the Islanders the elusive win. They had dropped eight straight at Madison Square Garden, including a loss there last week.
CAPITALS 4, LIGHTNING 3: In Tampa, Fla., Eric Fehr scored two goals, and Mathieu Perreault had three assists as Washington won its third in a row.
Troy Brouwer and Jay Beagle had the other Washington goals.
Martin St. Louis, Teddy Purcell and Nate Thompson scored for the Lightning, which has lost six in a row (0-5-1).
CANADIENS 1, PANTHERS 0, OT: In Sunrise, Fla., Rene Bourque scored 2:10 into overtime to lift Montreal.
Bourque’s winner came on a tip-in. The puck drifted in front of the crease and Shawn Matthias couldn’t clear it for Florida. Instead, it bounced off goalie Jose Theodore’s pad and Bourque poked it in.
Carey Price made 26 saves for his 17th career shutout and second against the Panthers.
PREDATORS 3, COYOTES 0: In Nashville, Tenn., Pekka Rinne made 19 saves for his second consecutive shutout to lead Nashville.
Gabriel Bourque, Nick Spaling and Mike Fisher had the Nashville goals.
