PITTSBURGH — Evgeni Malkin scored on the power play in overtime and Sidney Crosby picked up his first goal of the season to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Malkin’s third goal in as many games withstood a video review. He took a pass from Kris Letang at the top of the right circle and fired a slap shot past Roberto Luongo at 1:21 of the extra period. It was the second power-play goal of the game for the Penguins, who entered on an 0-of-17 slump with the man advantage.

Crosby netted his first three points of the season on the first-period goal and two assists.

Phil Kessel scored his second goal and Malkin has five points during a four-game point streak for the Penguins, who won their third straight. Marc-Andre Fleury, who has won 10 of 12 against the Panthers, stopped 31 shots.

ISLANDERS 4, BLUE JACKETS 0: Jaroslav Halak stopped 37 shots for his 37th career shutout to lead visiting New York to a fourth straight win.

The Blue Jackets extended their franchise-worst start and became the third team in the NHL’s modern history to open a season 0-7.

CANADIENS 3, BLUES 0: Carey Price made 38 saves for his second shutout in his last three starts and Alex Semin scored his first goal as Montreal won at home.

Max Pacioretty and Torrey Mitchell also scored for the Canadiens, who stretched their team-record winning streak to start the season to seven games.

DEVILS 3, COYOTES 2: Travis Zajac had a goal, two assists and set up Adam Larrson’s game-winning tally 43 seconds into overtime as New Jersey won at home.

Larsson slam-dunked the winner to cap a three-on-one break that started after he knocked Martin Hanzal off the puck in the Devils’ zone.

Mike Cammalleri also scored for New Jersey and Cory Schneider made 18 saves as the Devils won their second overtime game under new coach John Hynes after opening the season 0-3-1.

STARS 2, FLYERS 1: Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn each had a goal and an assist to lead visiting Dallas to its fourth straight win.

Sean Couturier scored for the Flyers, who were playing for the first time since beating Chicago last Wednesday.

Antti Niemi made 34 saves to improve to 3-1 in four career starts against Philadelphia.

Steve Mason recorded 30 saves for the Flyers.

PREDATORS 5, LIGHTNING 4: Filip Forsberg scored the only goal of the shootout to lead Nashville to a win at home.

James Neal scored twice, and Mike Fisher and Shea Weber also scored for the Predators, winners of 5 of 6. Nashville’s last two wins have come via shootout.

Predators goalie Pekka Rinne allowed four goals on 29 shots through the overtime, but he was sharp in the shootout, denying all three of the Lightning attempts.


BLACKHAWKS: Star Duncan Keith had right knee surgery, sidelining the top defenseman for the Stanley Cup champions for 4 to 6 weeks.

Keith, a two-time Norris Trophy winner, has two assists in six games this season. The team said he had a meniscal tear repaired.

“I don’t think it was a defining blow but it was bothering him,” Coach Joel Quenneville said.

The loss of Keith, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy last season for playoffs MVP, is a huge blow for the Stanley Cup champions.
