PHILADELPHIA — Cal Clutterbuck scored the deciding goal in the seventh round of the shootout to lead the New York Islanders to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Clutterbuck also scored in regulation for the Islanders, as did Mikhail Grabovski. Frans Nielsen got a puck past Steve Mason on the first shot of the shootout, and Wayne Simmonds scored on Philadelphia’s last tying attempt in the third round.

After Clutterbuck’s wrister got past Mason, Sean Couturier was denied by Jaroslav Halak on the tying attempt and Philadelphia’s season-high four-game winning streak was over.

Nick Schultz and Chris VandeVelde scored in regulation for the Flyers.

DUCKS 5, PREDATORS 2: Jakob Silfverberg scored two goals, and Anaheim took the top of the NHL standings for themselves by winning at Nashville.

Anaheim and Nashville came in tied atop both the NHL and the Western Conference with 72 points, though the Predators have a game in hand.

BLUES 3, SABRES 0: Jake Allen stopped 23 shots and St. Louis set a franchise record by extending its point streak to 13 games with a win at Buffalo.

Dmitrij Jaskin scored on a wraparound late in the second period, and Vladimir Tarasenko tapped in David Backes’ pass in the third period for St. Louis, which improved its run to 12-0-1. Jaden Schwartz added an empty-netter.

The Blues (34-13-4) won their seventh straight to match a season-best, while beating the Sabres for the sixth straight time.

Buffalo (15-34-3) was shut out for the ninth time this season – one short of matching a franchise high. And the Sabres failed to build off the momentum of a 3-2 win at Montreal on Tuesday, when Buffalo snapped a team-worst 14-game skid.

CAPITALS 2, SENATORS 1: Alex Ovechkin scored the winning goal as Washington won at Ottawa.

Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored for the Capitals as Braden Holtby picked up his 25th win of the season by stopping 25 shots.

Kyle Turris scored the lone Ottawa goal, and Robin Lehner made 27 saves.

Trailing 2-1 to start the third period, the Senators did their best to score the equalizer but couldn’t beat Holtby.

PANTHERS 3, KINGS 2: Brandon Pirri scored with 3:05 remaining to lift host Florida over struggling Los Angeles.

Nick Bjugstad and Aleksander Barkov also scored for the Panthers, and Roberto Luongo stopped 29 shots.

Pirri grabbed a loose puck in the left circle and fired the puck past Jonathan Quick. He scored for the fourth consecutive game and the sixth in his past seven.

The Panthers have won their past two games and Luongo beat the Kings for the first time in nine games.

Marian Gaborik and Jamie McBain scored for the Kings, and Quick made 17 saves.

The Kings lost their third straight game and seven of their past nine.
