Ducks keep Flyers in tailspin

PHILADELPHIA -- Teemu Selanne's power-play goal with 2:38 left in the third period gave the Anaheim Mighty Ducks a 4-3 win over Philadelphia on Saturday night, extending the Flyers' winless streak to seven games.

Selanne picked up a rebound of Paul Kariya's shot and flipped it high over Philadelphia rookie goalie Roman Cechmanek. Teammate Tony Hrkac tied the score at 8:31 of the third when he slid across the slot to punch in another rebound.

Steve Rucchin and Mike Leclerc also scored for the Mighty Ducks, who have a four-game (3-0-1) unbeaten streak.

Justin Williams, Paul Ranheim and Daniel McGillis scored for the Flyers, 0-4-3 since beating Vancouver in the season opener.

MAPLE LEAFS 2, FLAMES 1: Curtis Joseph continued his dominance over Calgary, making 32 saves as visiting Toronto hung on.

The Flames dominated play, outshooting the Leafs 33-19, but were unable to solve Joseph, who improved to 19-5-3 in his career against Calgary.

With Calgary pressing for the tying goal late in the third period, Joseph made consecutive spectacular saves against Marc Savard on a close-in slap shot and sliding across the crease to block Jarome Iginla's shot.

Toronto built a 2-0 lead with first-period goals by Steve Thomas and Tie Domi, each scoring his first of the season.

BLUES 1, BLACKHAWKS 0: Scott Young scored his league-leading eighth goal, and Roman Turek made 16 saves to record his 10th career shutout for host St. Louis.

With three minutes left in the second period, Young broke in with Pierre Turgeon on a two-on-one and one-timed Turgeon's pass by goalie Robbie Tallas. Sean Hill also assisted on the goal.

The goal gave Young eight in eight games, and nine points overall.

PENGUINS 5, BLUE JACKETS 2: Robert Lang scored two power-play goals for host Pittsburgh.

The Penguins' Jaromir Jagr scored his seventh goal of the season into an empty net with 1:21 left in the third period for his only point of the game.

The Penguins converted three of their seven power-play chances and are 4-1-1 since losing their opener to Nashville in Japan.

Expansion Columbus is 1-6-0 with its only victory coming at Calgary, 3-2 on Oct. 12.

CANADIENS 4, HURRICANES 2: Brian Savage had his sixth career hat trick, combining with linemates Martin Rucinsky and Trevor Linden to account for all of Montreal's offense, as Montreal extended its home winning streak to four games.

Montreal's record is above .500 (4-3-1) for the first time since Nov. 9, 1998, when it opened the season 6-5-2.

The Canadiens missed the playoffs two straight years, the first time the team has had such a drought since 1922.

Canadiens goalie Jose Theodore stopped 17 shots to give him wins in both starts this season.

RED WINGS 5, SABRES 4 (OT): Brendan Shanahan scored on a power play with 32.6 seconds left in overtime to lift host Detroit.

Shanahan put a screened shot past Dominik Hasek 19 seconds after a knee-to-knee collision between Detroit's Sergei Fedorov and Buffalo's Jay McKee.

Fedorov went down hard, and McKee went to the penalty box, setting up Detroit's third power-play goal of the night.

Pat Verbeek scored two goals and Fedorov added two assists for Detroit, which also got goals from Doug Brown and Martin Lapointe.

CAPITALS 4, ISLANDERS 4: Andrei Nikolishin's second goal of the game and host Washington's third on the power play, with 5:38 left in regulation, produced the tie.

Nikolishin, who also had an assist in the game, scored against John Vanbiesbrouck off a pass in front from Joe Murphy. The goal made the Capitals 3-for-8 with the man advantage.

Ulf Dahlen also had two goals and an assist, Murphy three assists and Sergei Gonchar two assists.

Brad Isbister led the Islanders with two power-play goals and an assist.

THRASHERS 6, SENATORS 6: Donald Audette had a hat trick as Atlanta rallied from a four-goal deficit.

Ottawa's Andreas Dackell also scored three goals. Shawn McEachern, playing his 600th NHL game, and Alexei Yashin collected four assists each as the Senators stayed unbeaten (4-0-3).

Rob Zamuner, Marian Hossa and Magnus Arvedson also scored for the Senators before 14,709 fans at the Corel Centre.

Hossa and Yashin have at least a point in each game this season.

FLYERS: Left wing John LeClair is expected to miss six to eight weeks after having back surgery Saturday in Los Angeles.

LeClair experienced back problems in the Flyers' Oct. 8 loss to Boston. He was diagnosed with an inflamed disc.

LeClair, who has had five consecutive 40-goal seasons for the Flyers, is expected to return to Philadelphia on Monday. He will return to Los Angeles for therapy in two weeks.

LeClair first experienced back problems last year. He missed two games at the end of the 1998-99 season and was sidelined for much of last year's preseason.

His 235 goals over the past five seasons are the most in the NHL during that span.

STARS 4, KINGS 3: Brett Hull scored the winner on a deflection with 5:46 to play as host Dallas rallied.

With the Stars on a power play in a 3-3 game, Hull set up in the slot with his stick raised high and deflected Sergei Zubov's point shot to the ice and past goalie Jamie Storr.

The play went to replay, and the video goal judges ruled that the puck struck Hull's stick when it was below the level of the crossbar, giving the Stars their fifth straight victory and Hull his sixth goal of the season and 616th of his career.

SHARKS 5, PREDATORS 3: Scott Thornton began a three-goal flurry in the second period of his 500th NHL game, and San Jose ended host Nashville's unbeaten string at four games.

San Jose has won four of five, while the Predators lost for the first time in five games.
