The play started with a Flyers’ turnover just outside their zone. Slava Voynov raced down the right side, creating a 2-on-1 with King. He took Voynov’s perfectly placed cross-ice pass and beat Ray Emery high on the stick side on a forehand from close range.

Jonathan Quick made 30 saves for Los Angeles.

Rangers 4, Coyotes 3 — Ryan McDonagh scored off a rebound of Dan Girardi’s shot 1:56 into overtime to complete host New York’s rally over Phoenix.

McDonagh put the puck past goalie Thomas Greiss, who relieved injured starter Mike Smith in the third period and then gave up the tying and winning goals. Girardi got the Rangers even with 3:26 left in regulation when he tipped in a drive by his defense partner McDonagh.


Brad Richards and Derick Brassard scored in the second period as New York erased a 2-0 deficit. Henrik Lundqvist made 18 saves on a night he was honored for recently breaking Rangers career marks for wins and shutouts.

Smith stopped 25 shots while making his 12th consecutive start, but was forced to leave with 7:34 left in regulation after he injured his right leg when Brassard was pushed into him by Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris.

Senators 4, Lightning 3 — Jason Spezza scored in regulation and had the only goal in a shootout as Ottawa beat host Tampa Bay.

Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists to help the Senators snap a six-game losing streak. Karlsson, the top-scoring defenseman in the NHL with 68 points, opened the scoring 3:57 into the game with his career-high 20th goal.

Robin Lehner finished with 35 saves for the Senators.


Despite the loss, Tampa Bay has earned a point in nine consecutive games (5-0-4) for the first time since its 2003-04 championship season.

Stars 2, Jets 1 — Ray Whitney and Tyler Seguin scored power-play goals as host Dallas held off Winnipeg and moved within a point of Phoenix for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot.

Winnipeg continued to fade out of the postseason race. The Jets are 2-6-3 in their past 11 games.

Flames 2, Sharks 1 — Visiting San Jose clinched a playoff spot by getting a point in a shootout loss to Calgary.

Mike Cammalleri scored the only goal in the shootout for Calgary. He moved in from the right wing and went short side on Alex Stalock, setting off a roar from the Saddledome crowd.

Karri Ramo, who finished with 33 saves, stopped Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, and James Sheppard for the win.
