LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jonathan Marchessault had never attempted a penalty shot in his NHL career.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — There was a time when Chris Wideman wondered if he would ever score another NHL goal.
Still coming in bunches, in fact.
Wideman got his first two goals in nearly a year, Craig Anderson made 36 saves and the Ottawa Senators beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-1 on Saturday.
Wideman tore a hamstring last November and missed the rest of the season. The 28-year-old had been without a point in his first four games this season.
TORONTO (AP) — The play of Thomas Chabot might help the Ottawa Senators get over the loss of Erik Karlsson.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins can admit it now. The regular season is kind of a drag.
Being the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions creates a target on your back that's impossible to shake. An NHL-high 19 back-to-backs left them spent. A sluggish first half forced them to focus.
No matter. The Penguins survived. And now they're heading to the playoffs with momentum and home-ice advantage in the opening round. A legitimate shot at a Stanley Cup three-peat awaits.
