NHL goal leader Alexander Steen scores final-minute winner for Blues against Jets

Steen netted with 54.4 seconds left to give St Louis a 3-2 win over Winnipeg and Jonathan Toews claimed a hat trick in a Chicago victory on Tuesday.

Blues 3, Jets 2

Alexander Steen scored with 54.4 seconds left, giving him his NHL-best 11th goal and giving the St Louis Blues a victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

With the goal, Steen broke a tie with the other Alexander – Ovechkin.

Alex Pietrangelo and Brenden Morrow scored for the Blues, who extended their undefeated-in-regulation streak to five games at 3-0-2. Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little scored for Winnipeg.

Rangers 3, Islanders 2

Benoit Pouliot’s goal with 6:14 left in the third period capped an entertaining, back-and-forth game and lifted the New York Rangers to a contentious win over the New York Islanders.

Chris Kreider and Ryan McDonagh scored power play goals for the Rangers (4-7-0) who trailed 2-1 following second-period goals from the Islanders’ Cal Clutterbuck and Peter Regin.

The Islanders (4-5-3) played their first game since the blockbuster trade Sunday for left wing Thomas Vanek, who was held to one shot in the loss.

The game featured flaring tempers as there were at least three skirmishes as well as a fight between the Islanders’ Matt Martin and the Rangers’ Derek Dorsett in the second, and pushing and shoving from both teams as time expired.

Blackhawks 6, Senators 5

Jonathan Toews scored a natural hat trick, while Andrew Shaw added two goals, including the game-winner, as the Chicago Blackhawks rallied to defeat the Ottawa Senators.

With his team down 4-2, Toews, the Blackhawks captain, ran off three straight goals before Shaw notched what proved to be the deciding goal for Chicago (8-2-3) at 14:10 in the third period.

Ducks 3, Flyers 2

Kyle Palmieri scored the go-ahead goal with 4:09 left in the game after getting the tying goal earlier in the period, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied to beat the Philadelphia Flyers.

Andrew Cogliano also scored a goal and Jonas Hiller made 35 saves for the Ducks, who are 10-3.

Matt Read and Vincent Lecavalier had Philadelphia’s goals. The Flyers are 3-8.

Devils 2, Lightning 1

Jaromir Jagr and Adam Henrique scored second-period goals as the New Jersey Devils edged the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Goaltender Martin Brodeur made 16 saves to earn the victory while Lightning netminder Ben Bishop stopped 20 of 22 shots but was saddled with his second loss of the season.

Steven Stamkos scored for the Lightning (8-4-0), who had their three-game win streak snapped.

Canadiens 2, Stars 1

Michael Bournival and Rene Bourque scored, Carey Price made 26 saves and the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Dallas Stars.

Defenseman Raphael Diaz assisted on both goals by Montreal (8-5-0) who earned their third win in four games.

Maple Leafs 4, Oilers 0

Phil Kessel scored twice to bring his goal tally for the season to nine and James van Riemsdyk netted his sixth as the Maple Leafs improved to 9-4-0.

Toronto goalie James Reimer made 43 saves in notching the shutout while Richard Bachman made 26 saves in the loss for the Oilers.

Coyotes 3, Kings 1

Derek Morris and Shane Doan scored about two minutes apart near the end of the second period and Kyle Chipchura added a third goal in the third period for Phoenix (8-3-2).

Los Angeles (8-5-0) avoided the shutout with Jarrett Stoll’s first goal of the season late in the third, a power play tally. Mike Smith made 42 saves in the victory for the Coyotes.
