ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michal Neuvirth made 33 saves and Brandon Manning broke a scoreless tie with a second-period goal to lead the Philadelphia Flyers over the St. Louis Blues 2-0 on Thursday night.

Claude Giroux added an empty-net goal with 5.4 seconds left in Philadelphia’s first shutout of the season.

St. Louis lost at home for the first time after opening 5-0. The Blues, who earned at least one point in each of their previous seven games, were the only team in the league that hadn’t been beaten at home.

CAPTIALS 4,

ISLANDERS 3

WASHINGTON (AP) — Lars Eller scored two goals, including the winner, and had an assist to Washington beat New York.

Eller was arguably the best player on the ice, drawing two penalties and committing one as part of an eventful outing. The Danish center’s play helped Washington escape despite being outshot 38-19 and 16-2 in the third period.

BRUINS 2,

GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1

BOSTON (AP) — Sean Kuraly scored his first career goal to snap a tie midway through the third period, sending Boston over Vegas.

Kuraly got to a rebound during a scrum in front of the Vegas net after a shot by Torey Krug with 10:07 left, restoring Boston’s lead and helping the Bruins to avoid being swept by the expansion Golden Knights in their inaugural season. It was the second assist of the night for Krug, who helped set up Reilly Nash’s goal early in the second for Boston, which was coming off consecutive losses in overtime and a shootout.

JETS 5, STARS 2

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mark Scheifele had a hat trick, Patrik Laine scored his first goal in five games and Winnipeg beat Dallas to extend its points streak to six games.

Laine’s goal came after he told reporters at the morning skate that he didn’t have a lot of confidence and felt he couldn’t do many “positive things” on the ice. He has five goals and two assists in 12 games.

WILD 6, CANADIENS 3

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Matt Cullen scored his first goal of the season on his 41st birthday and added an assist during Minnesota’s three-goal first period, giving the sputtering Wild a welcome spark.

Nino Neiderreiter and Tyler Ennis also scored to send struggling Canadiens goalie Carey Price into the first intermission with a 3-0 deficit. Ryan Suter chipped in a second-period goal, and Jared Spurgeon scored on a power play for more insurance in the first minute of the third.

PANTHERS 3

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Oliver Bjorkstrand and Josh Anderson each scored twice to lift Columbus over Florida.

RANGERS 2,

LIGHTNING 1, OT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — J.T. Miller scored 1:19 into overtime and New York beat Tampa Bay.

FLAMES 2,

PENGUINS 1, OT

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Mark Giordano scored 2:19 into overtime, Mike Smith made 43 saves and Calgary edged Pittsburgh.

Giordano fired a perfect shot over Tristan Jarry’s glove off a pass by Matthew Tkachuk.

Sean Monahan also scored for the Flames, who are 2-1-0 during a seven-game homestand.

SABRES 5, COYOTES 4

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Benoit Pouliot had two goals and an assist as Buffalo held off Arizona.

Kyle Okposo had a goal and an assist to help the Sabres build a 5-1 lead in the third period in a matchup between the worst teams from each conference. But the Coyotes scored three times in the final eight minutes, pulling within one on Christian Dvorak’s goal with an extra attacker and 52 seconds left.

Dvorak’s goal came after Zac Rinaldo and Nick Cousins each scored in the third to give the Coyotes a chance, but they couldn’t get anything else past Robin Lehner.

KINGS 5,

MAPLE LEAFS 3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tyler Toffoli scored twice, Michael Amadio got his first NHL goal and Los Angeles topped Toronto for its eighth victory in 10 games.

Amadio, Michael Cammalleri and Trevor Lewis scored during a three-goal first period for the Kings. Jonathan Quick made 33 saves as they pulled even with St. Louis atop the Western Conference standings.

Los Angeles was up 5-0 late in the second before Auston Matthews scored on his first career penalty shot.

Morgan Rielly and Connor Brown also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have lost four of five. Matthews got a second penalty shot in the final minutes after Los Angeles defenseman Jake Muzzin knocked the net off its moorings, but Matthews missed the net.
