New York Rangers right wing Brandon Prust (8) grabbed Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Brian Lee.

Ryan Malone scored 1:58 into overtime as the Lightning overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers, 4-3, last night at Tampa.

Malone beat Henrik Lundqvist from the slot as his winner stopped a personal 10-game goal drought.

Brandon Dubinsky got the Rangers even at 3 from the left circle with 3:27 left in the third.

Steven Stamkos scored his league-leading 45th goal from slot at 10:17 of the third to give the Lightning a 3-2 lead.

Tom Pyatt and Teddy Purcell also scored for the Lightning, who moved within 4 points of eighth-place Winnipeg in the East.

Devils 5, Capitals 0 - Zach Parise notched a hat trick before a crunching hit from two players sent him to the locker room midway through the second period, and visiting New Jersey snapped a four-game losing streak.

Parise raised his total to a team-high 27 goals - including pairing with a somersaulting Dainius Zubrus for two that came 29 seconds apart - but left the game at the 9:40 mark of the second period when he was sandwiched between Washington forwards Matt Hendricks and Brooks Laich near the boards.

Parise was on the bench in the third period and played briefly on a power play with about six minutes left.

Red Wings 6, Wild 0 - Jimmy Howard made 19 saves for his 11th career shutout, Valtteri Filppula had two goals and an assist, and Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and two assists for host Detroit.

The Red Wings snapped the two-game skid at home that followed its NHL-record 23-game winning streak in Detroit.

Blackhawks 2, Senators 1 - Marian Hossa scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period as visiting Chicago held on to defeat Ottawa.

Stars 3, Oilers 1 - Kari Lehtonen made 19 saves for his 25th win, Michael Ryder, Radek Dvorak, and Tomas Vincour scored, and visiting Dallas won for the fifth time in six games.

Ducks 3, Flames 2 - Ryan Getzlaf scored the winner with 46 seconds left and Jonas Hiller made 27 saves to extend Anaheim’s home winning streak against Calgary to 15 games.
