Seguin scores in OT, Stars beat Lightning 4-3
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Seguin scored three minutes into overtime, Anton Khudobin stopped 45 shots, and the Dallas Stars beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Thursday night.
After Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson missed a shot from close range, Alexander Radulov passed to Seguin, who skated in from left wing boards and got the winner from the low slot.
Dallas also got goals from Radulov, Radek Faksa, and Jason Dickinson. Khudobin stopped Yanni Gourde’s shot during a 2-on-none break in the third.
Mikhail Sergachev, Alex Killorn and Ondrej Palat scored, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 16 saves for the Lightning. Nikita Kucherov, the NHL MVP last season, had an assist after being benched for the third period and overtime in Tuesday night’s 4-3 win over Ottawa following a costly turnover.
FLYERS 6, SABRES 1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — James van Riemsdyk scored twice and Philadelphia took advantage of some sloppy defense and a strong power play to beat short-handed Buffalo.
The Sabres were without captain Jack Eichel, the NHL’s second-leading goal scorer who was a late scratch after participating in pregame workouts with what was called an upper-body injury. The scratch put an end to Eichel’s 17-game point scoring streak — the league’s longest this season — because the NHL does not allow point streaks to continue because of missed games.
Buffalo deflected three shots past goaltender Carter Hutton to assist the rout.
Van Riemsdyk recorded his second two-goal game of the season. Mikhail Vorobyev, Matt Niskanen, Ivan Provorov and Tyler Pitlick were credited with goals for Philadelphia, who put 29 shots on Hutton in the victory. The Flyers were 3 for 5 with the man advantage Thursday.
Flyers goaltender Carter had 16 saves.
Victor Olofsson added his 15th goal midway through the third period for the Sabres. Hutton finished with 22 saves.

CANADIENS 4, FLAMES 3, OT
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Max Domi beat goalie Dave Rittich on an end-to-end overtime rush to give Montreal the win over Calgary.
