DALLAS - Bill Guerin scored his first goal in 19 games with less than a second left in the second period as the Stars beat the Predators 4-2 on Monday.
Tied at 1, Dallas was on its 10th power play and scrambling to get a shot off when Janne Niinimaa got the puck at the point and sent it toward the front of the net. Guerin gathered the pass and knocked it in when the horn sounded and the clock showed 0.00. The goal was awarded and the clock reset to .9 after a video review.
Niinimaa, who missed the previous seven games with an ankle injury, added a short-handed goal 3:25 into the third to make it 3-1.
Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun came out to the left circle and tried to pass, but Scott Hartnell was skating toward the bench. Vokoun fell as he tried to recover. Niklas Hagman shot toward the open net, but defenseman Marek Zidlicky made a sliding save. Niinimaa got the rebound near where Vokoun had been and knocked it in.
SENATORS 5, PENGUINS 2: Peter Schaefer had two goals and an assist and backup goalie Ray Emery got his first win in more than a month for host Ottawa. Pittsburgh has lost six in a row and 16 of 17.
Emery made 22 saves for his first win since 4-3 over the Islanders on Dec.30. Emery, who set a league record Nov.29 with his ninth consecutive win to begin his career, had allowed 17 goals while being pulled from two of his past three starts.
Schaefer assisted on Bryan Smolinski's five-on-three goal with 9:27 left in the second to put the Senators up 3-1. His power-play goal 1:16 later increased the lead to three. And he made it 5-2 51 seconds into the third when he faked Marc-Andre Fleury before beating him with a back-hander.
CANUCKS 7, BLUE JACKETS 4: Daniel Sedin and Markus Naslund scored power-play goals 2:48 apart in the third to stave off visiting Columbus' rally. Down 4-0 after one, Nikolai Zherdev and Rostislav Klesla scored :30 apart to make it 4-3 2:17 into the third. But Adam Foote was called for interference at 3:48, and Sedin one-timed Anson Carter's drop pass in at 4:32. Then 2:12 after Klesla received a double minor for high sticking, Naslund slid a backhander in.OILERS 6, DUCKS 5 (SO): Fernando Pisani had a goal and assist then got the winner for host Edmonton. The Oilers improved to 6-4 after their league-high 10th shootout. Pisani scored his first goal since Jan.3 to tie it with 9:33 left. Then he got the shootout's only goal.

OLYMPICS: Hurricanes defenseman Bret Hedican will replace the Kings' Aaron Miller on the U.S. team. Miller, who missed 16 games earlier this season, wants to rest his sore back. Also, Hurricanes forward Matt Cullen, Devils defenseman Paul Martin and Sabres goalie Ryan Miller were named to the U.S. taxi squad. They can play only if an injury knocks someone out of the tournament. Miller also was named the defensive player of the week after going 3-0 with a 1.63 goals-against average.
