Evander Kane collected his eighth career hat trick and Leon Draisaitl scored the third-period, go-ahead goal in a two-point game as the visiting Edmonton Oilers earned a 5-3 comeback victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.
Zach Hyman scored a goal and Connor McDavid notched three assists — giving him 12 points in a five-game streak — as the Oilers returned to the win column after seeing their 16-game winning streak snapped their previous outing in Las Vegas. Goalie Calvin Pickard made 24 saves for his fifth consecutive victory.
Ryan Strome scored twice and Cam Fowler collected a goal and an assist for the Ducks, whose two-game winning streak and four-game points streak (3-0-1) were snapped. Frank Vatrano and Adam Henrique both collected two assists.
Anaheim goalie John Gibson stopped 19 of 21 shots before leaving the game after the second period due to a lower-body injury. Lukas Dostal made eight saves and was handed the loss.
Wild 3, Penguins 2
Kirill Kaprizov scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, and Minnesota held on for a win over Pittsburgh in St. Paul, Minn.
Kaprizov, Matt Boldy and Jonas Brodin each finished with a goal and an assist for the Wild, who won their second straight game since the NHL All-Star break. Reilly Smith and Sidney Crosby each scored for Pittsburgh.
The Wild celebrated “Marc-Andre Fleury Night” with a pregame ceremony and video tributes, and Fleury delivered on his namesake night. The veteran goaltender stopped 34 of 36 shots against his former team to earn his 553rd career win.
Rangers 4, Blackhawks 3 (OT)
Mika Zibanejad scored at 2:37 of overtime and Chris Kreider had a goal and an assist to boost streaking New York to a win against host Chicago.
New York overcame a shaky start and finish in goaltender Igor Shesterkin’s return to the lineup, winning for the fourth straight time while earning points for the sixth time in the past seven games. Zibanejad tallied his eighth career OT winner, beating Blackhawks goaltender Petr Mrazek with a wrist shot from the right circle.
Chicago picked up a point but lost for a season-worst sixth straight time this season. The Blackhawks tallied more than two goals for the first time since Jan. 19. Nick Foligno and Jason Dickinson scored in the final 6:23 of regulation to tie the game.
