PHILADELPHIA — Kenny Agostino scored his first goal in almost three years, Carter Hutton had 26 saves and the St. Louis Blues beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-0 on Monday night.

Paul Stastny also scored for St. Louis, which won for the second time in three games after Coach Mike Yeo replaced Ken Hitchcock on Feb. 1, following a 1-5-0 stretch. Hutton, who allowed 13 goals in his three previous appearances, posted his first shutout since Jan. 24 and No. 3 on the season.

Michal Neuvirth made 14 stops for Philadelphia, which lost for the third time in four games.

DEVILS 2, SABRES 1: Pavel Zacha scored on a power play with 7:27 remaining as New Jersey snapped a seven-game home losing streak.

Adam Henrique also scored a power-play goal, Mike Cammalleri had two assists and Cory Schneider made 22 saves as the Devils won at the Prudential Center for the first time since Jan. 2. Tyler Ennis scored for the Sabres, and Robin Lehner made 37 saves.

ISLANDERS 6, MAPLELEAFS 5: Brock Nelson’s second goal of the game at 2:42 of overtime lifted New York to a win at home.

Trailing 5-4 late in the third period, the Islanders pulled goalie Thomas Greiss and tied it on Andrew Ladd’s deflection with 1:29 left.

Josh Bailey had a goal and two assists, Ryan Strome a goal and an assist, and Nikolay Kulemin also scored for the Islanders. New York improved to 6-0-2 in its last eight games at home.


PENGUINS: Evgeni Malkin’s lower-body injury is healing. So too, are the 2012 MVP’s feelings about being left off the NHL’s 100 Greatest Players list unveiled at the All-Star game last month in conjunction with the league’s centennial season.

Malkin joked on Monday he’s “trying to forget” being passed over for a list that included teammate Sidney Crosby as well as owner Mario Lemieux.

Malkin’s presence at practice is a sign his stay on the injured reserve may be nearing an end. Malkin hasn’t played since getting hurt in a shutout loss to St. Louis on Jan. 24. He wore a non-contact jersey while skating for an hour with his teammates.
