ATLANTA -- Ilya Kovalchuk scored two goals and the Thrashers beat the Hurricanes 4-1 in a preseason game Saturday.

Kovalchuk tied it on a power play at 8:35 of the first period and put the Thrashers ahead at 18:49 of the second period. He spent 10 minutes in the penalty box after being called for five penalties in the period.

Pasi Nurminen stopped 24 of 25 shots.

Atlanta scored two late goals: Dany Heatley at 15:12 of the third and Lubos Batecko scored into an empty net with 25 seconds left.

FLAMES 3, OILERS 0: Roman Turek made 24 saves for host Calgary, and Chris Drury, acquired Tuesday in a trade from Colorado, had a goal and two assists for his new team.

FLYERS 3, CAPITALS 2: Donald Brashear scored twice, including the winner at 10:53 of the third period.

STARS 2, BLUES 1 (OT): Bill Guerin scored 24 seconds into overtime for host Dallas. Guerin skated to the net and backhanded Sergei Zubov's lead pass past Fred Brathwaite. The Blues' Sergei Varlamov's power-play rebound with 53 seconds left in regulation sent the game to overtime.

PREDATORS 2, BLUE JACKETS 0: Andy Delmore scored a first-period goal, and Mike Dunham made 21 saves for Nashville. Clarke Wilm added an empty-net goal with 34 seconds left.

BLACKHAWKS 1, RED WINGS 1: Steve Sullivan scored in the third to give visiting Chicago a tie. Nicklas Lidstrom put Detroit ahead with 4:31 left in the second.

ISLANDERS 3, DEVILS 1: Raffi Torres had a goal and an assist, and Chris Osgood made 26 saves to lead visiting New York.

RANGERS 4, BRUINS 3: Jamie Lundmark scored on a power play with 3:46 left for visiting New York. Lundmark scored his sixth goal in nine preseason games 1:09 after Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch tied it on a breakaway.

CANADIENS 9, SENATORS 4: Donald Audette and Yanic Perreault each scored twice for host Montreal.

BLUE JACKETS: Forward Hannes Hyvonen was claimed off waivers from the Panthers. He had 24 goals and 18 assists in 67 games last season with AHL Cleveland.

CANADIENS: The team announced rough forward Gino Odjick is on indefinite leave of absence. "We are not at liberty to comment on the reasons for his absence," Donald Beauchamp, team vice president of communications, said. When asked Friday for a medical update on Odjick, coach Michel Therrien said the enforcer was having personal problems. Odjick, 32, has been resting at home with severe headaches that started soon after he was struck in the head by a puck in an informal scrimmage, in which a shot by Lightning forward Andre Roy went off a goal post and hit him.

Fleury's father ill

Blackhawks forward Theo Fleury said he missed two practices last week because his father had surgery to remove a tumor. Wally Fleury was at home and waiting for test results. Fleury returned Friday for a 4-3 loss to the Blues.
