Shanahan goal in overtime gives Rangers 4-3 victory over Canadiens

Brendan Shanahan scored early in overtime to give the Rangers a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night, extending New York's winning streak to three games.
Shanahan was sprung on a breakaway by Chris Drury. He skated straight down on Montreal goalie Cristobal Huet and sent a 15-foot wrist shot over the goalie's left shoulder 1:06 into the extra period.
Drury tied the game with 5:51 left in regulation when he found a loose puck at the top of the crease and flipped it over a prone Huet.
Dan Girardi, who assisted on Shanahan's goal, and Jaromir Jagr also scored for the Rangers, who got 18 saves from Henrik Lundqvist.
Andrei Kastsitsyn scored two power play goals for Montreal, and linemate Tomas Plekanec also scored. Huet wound up with 17 saves as Montreal closed out a six-game road trip at 3-2-1.
Kings 3, Blackhawks 2, OT
In Chicago, Dustin Brown scored his second goal of the game in overtime to give Los Angeles a victory over Chicago, its second straight win after an eight-game losing streak.
Brown and Kyle Calder connected in the third period to rally the Kings from a 2-0 deficit and force overtime, where Brown beat Nikolai Khabibulin with a low shot at 3:31.
Rookies Jonathan Toews and Jacob Dowell scored in regulation for the Blackhawks, whose four-game winning streak ended.
The Blackhawks played before a season-high United Center crowd of 21,715 _ their second straight sellout and largest since drawing 21,811 on Dec. 27, 2001.
Khabibulin made 33 saves. Los Angeles' Jason LaBarbera stopped 30 shots.
Canucks 2, Ducks 1
In Vancouver, British Columbia, Daniel Sedin and Matt Cooke each scored to help Vancouver beat struggling Anaheim, which has lost two of its last three on a trip through Canada.
The NHL's most penalized team, Anaheim again found itself in trouble in the first period.
With George Parros and Neil O'Donnell in the box for consecutive interference penalties, the first coming in the offensive zone and the second while already down a man, Henrik Sedin found Daniel Sedin in open ice for his team-leading 17th goal of the season.
Vancouver took a 2-0 lead four minutes into the second period when Cooke finished off a 3-on-2 rush with a wrist shot from 25 feet that slipped past Jonas Hiller.
Flyers 1, Panthers 0
In Sunrise, Florida, Derian Hatcher scored midway through the third period and Antero Niittymaki stopped 38 shots, helping Philadelphia beat Florida for its third straight victory.
It was the third career shutout and first of the season for Niittymaki, who has appeared in 111 games over parts of four seasons with the Flyers.
Florida goalie Tomas Vokoun matched Niittymaki well into the third period, when the Flyers' Stefan Ruzicka fired a wrist shot from the left circle. The puck deflected to Hatcher, who fired the go-ahead goal past Vokoun at 9:14.
It was Hatcher's second of the season and 80th in 1,022 career games.
Vokoun, who was pulled during Friday night's loss to Montreal, stopped 19 of 20 shots.
