Florida Runs Unbeaten Streak to 12

MIAMI -- Mike Hough scored with 2:17 remaining to give the Florida Panthers a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks to extend the Panthers' unbeaten streak to 12 games.


The Panthers (8-0-4) are now three games away from tying the 1984-1985 Edmonton Oilers' NHL record for starting the season without a loss. The Oilers went 12-0-3 that season before their first loss.


The victory was also the first over Chicago for the 4-year-old Panthers in five games. It prevented the Blackhawks from breaking a team record for starting the season undefeated on the road.


Red Wings 5, Canadiens 3. In Detroit, Sergei Fedorov had a goal and an assist in a wild third period as Detroit beat the Montreal 5-3.


The Canadiens, who trailed 2-0 after two periods, scored three times as the teams combined to score four goals in a 4:44 span of the third period.


Martin Lapointe, Steve Yzerman, Vyacheslav Kozlov and Darren McCarty also scored for the Red Wings. Vladimir Malakhov, Stephane Quintal and Brendan Savage scored the Montreal goals.


Capitals 4, Flyers 2. In Landover, Maryland, Jason Allison scored the tie-breaking goal with 1:48 left as the Washington Capitals handed the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-2 loss, their third straight.


The Capitals blew a two-goal lead before coming back to win. After Allison put Washington ahead, Dale Hunter scored into an empty net with 18.2 seconds to go.


Rangers 6, Devils 1. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Mike Richter had 53 saves and Brian Leetch and Daniel Goneau each scored twice as the New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils 6-1 despite taking only 23 shots.


Wayne Gretzky extended his league-high scoring streak to 13 games (six goals, 14 assists), setting up Leetch's second power-play goal and another in the third period by Niklas Sundstrom. Darren Langdon also scored for the Rangers, who built a 4-0 lead on 14 shots in the first two periods.


Richter was spectacular in stopping 43 shots in the opening 40 minutes. The Devils finally ended Richter's mastery on their 45th shot when Brian Rolston scored at 1:29 of the third period of the game that featured several scuffles.


Islanders 2, Whalers 2. In Hartford, Connecticut, Kevin Dineen scored Hartford's second power-play goal of the game 4:43 into the third period, giving the Whalers a 2-2 tie with the New York Islanders.


Dineen ripped a slap shot from high in the right circle to the far side of Islanders goaltender Eric Fichaud, off a pass from Geoff Sanderson. Four of the 33-year-old Dineen's five goals have come on the power play. He is tied for the NHL lead in power-play goals.


Scott Lachance nearly gave the Islanders the win in the closing seconds of regulation, when he banged a shot off the left post. Travis Green was also denied in overtime, on a toe save by Whalers goalie Jason Muzzatti.


Senators 2, Kings 2. In Kanata, Ontario, Daniel Alfredsson completed a comeback for Ottawa as the Senators scored twice in the third period to pull out a 2-2 tie with the Los Angeles Kings.


Brent Grieve and Craig Johnson gave the Kings a 2-0 lead after two, before Alexei Yashin and Alfredsson responded for Ottawa.
