Ondrej Pavelec of the Jets makes a sprawling save with Boston’s Tyler Seguin in front of the net during the first period Tuesday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Jets rallied in the third period for a 3-1 win.

"There's no easy games. Just because we beat Boston doesn't mean we're going to play Washington back to back and that will be a lesser game."

Notes: The Jets have been keeping it clean, particularly at home. Only Calgary and Minnesota have been short-handed fewer times than the Jets. They've had to kill 88 penalties in total and an NHL-low 29 at home, before Tuesday.

RANGERS 3, DEVILS 2: Michael Del Zotto scored a short-handed goal and set up Rick Nash's winner to lead New York to a win at Newark, N.J.

Travis Zajac and Anton Volchenkov scored for New Jersey, which lost its third in a row.

PENGUINS 2, CAPITALS 1: Defenseman Matt Niskanen scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Sidney Crosby had two assists as host Pittsburgh won its 10th straight.

Niskanen's goal at 11:58 came 9 seconds after the Penguins killed a four-minute penalty in the third period.

The winning streak is the longest of the season for the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins and the second-longest in the NHL this season.

SABRES 3, CANADIENS 2: Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 of overtime lifted Buffalo to a win at Montreal.

P.K. Subban was off after his stick clipped Mark Pysyk and, with 2 seconds left in the man advantage, Ott was at the doorstep to shovel in a rebound.

The Sabres are 5-5-3 under Coach Ron Rolston since Lindy Ruff was fired Feb. 20.

SENATORS 5, ISLANDERS 3: Sergei Gonchar scored with 1 minute left for Ottawa, who scored four goals in the third period to win at Uniondale, N.Y.

Gonchar's second goal of the season came on a blast from the point to make it 4-3, and Guillaume Latendresse added an empty-net goal to seal the win.

Ben Bishop, a former UMaine goalie, made 26 saves in the win.

PANTHERS 4, HURRICANES 1: Tomas Fleischmann, Marcel Goc and Shawn Matthias scored 6:12 apart in the third period to lead Florida to a win at Raleigh, N.C.

The Panthers snapped a six-game losing streak.

BLUE JACKETS 4, PREDATORS 3: Sergei Bobrovksy shook off a slap shot to his mask and withstood two late goals, and Mark Letestu had a goal and an assist as host Columbus beat Nashville to extend its franchise-record point streak to 11 games.

Fedor Tyutin, Nikita Nikitin and Derick Brassard also scored for Columbus, which is on a 7-0-4 run.

Gabriel Bourque, Chris Mueller and Mike Fisher scored for the Predators, who have lost four in a row.


DEVILS: New Jersey activated goaltender Martin Brodeur off injured reserve.

Brodeur, the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender, has been sidelined since mid-February with a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck.

SENATORS: Forward Milan Michalek had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and will be out indefinitely.
