Roope Hintz had a goal and two assists and the Dallas Stars scored five third-period goals in a 6-3 win over the visiting New York Rangers on Monday.
The loss ended New York’s 11-game points streak (10-0-1), tied for the 10th-longest run in franchise history.
Mason Marchment, Tyler Seguin and Joe Pavelski each had a goal and an assist for the Stars. Jamie Benn and Sam Steel scored Dallas’ other goals. Stars goalie Scott Wedgewood stopped 30 of 33 shots for his fourth win in five games this season.
The three-point night ended a modest slump for Hintz, who had only two points (one goal, one assist) in his previous seven games.
Panthers 5, Oilers 3
Host Florida overcame two goals by Edmonton superstar Connor McDavid to win in Sunrise.
McDavid, who has led the NHL in points five times, now has six goals and nine assists this season.
Panthers defenseman Niko Mikkola — quite improbably — matched McDavid’s two goals. Prior to this game, Mikkola had scored only six goals in five NHL seasons.
Kings 4, Coyotes 1
Trevor Moore scored two goals for Los Angeles in a win at Tempe, Ariz.
Phillip Danault had a goal and an assist, Anze Kopitar also scored and Pheonix Copley made 30 saves for the Kings, who improved to 8-0-0 on the road, tied for the third-longest road winning streak to start a season in NHL history.
Lawson Crouse scored and Connor Ingram made 21 saves for the Coyotes, who have lost two in a row for the first time since back-to-back defeats to the Kings on Oct. 24 and Oct. 27.
Lighting 5, Bruins 4 (OT)
Brandon Hagel scored on a breakaway 1:19 into overtime as Tampa Bay took down the NHL’s top club, topping visiting Boston.
Hagel slipped his ninth goal of the season through the legs of goaltender Jeremy Swayman (41 saves) as the Lightning won for the first time in five overtime games. Hagel and Steven Stamkos each had a goal and an assist, while Tanner Jeannot, Nicholas Paul and Austin Watson scored for Tampa Bay.
David Pastrnak recorded a goal and an assist, and Pavel Zacha, Charlie Coyle and John Beecher each scored for the Bruins, who dropped to 7-1-2 in their past 10 games and are 2-3 in overtime.
Predators 4, Avalanche 3
Filip Forsberg and Yakov Trenin scored 16 seconds apart in the final minute of regulation as Nashville rallied to stun visiting Colorado.
Down 3-2 in the late stages of the game, the Predators were relentless in their pressure on Colorado goaltender Alexandar Georgiev (26 saves) over a 2 1/2-minute stretch.
Valeri Nichushkin had a goal with an assist and Cale Makar recorded three assists for the Avalanche, who had won eight straight regular-season and playoff games against Nashville. Andrew Cogliano and Devon Toews also scored for Colorado, and Nathan MacKinnon notched two assists.
Canucks 3, Sharks 1
Quinn Hughes had a goal and an assist to hit the 30-point mark after just 19 games and Thatcher Demko made 27 saves to lead host Vancouver over San Jose.
Hughes tied his career high for goals in a season with his eighth to go along with 22 assists. He became just the third defenseman in NHL history to compile 30 points in fewer than 20 games to begin a season and the first since Al MacInnis in 1990-91. Bobby Orr accomplished the feat five times.
Tomas Hertl scored and Mackenzie Blackwood finished with 34 saves for San Jose, which fell to 0-8-0 on the road this season.
Flames 4, Kraken 3 (OT)
Rasmus Andersson had the game-winning goal at 3:28 of overtime to go along with two assists as Calgary rallied to defeat host Seattle.

Vince Dunn had a goal and an assist and Jordan Eberle and Jared McCann also scored for the Kraken, who were trying to beat the Flames in Seattle for the first time in franchise history. Joey Daccord stopped 22 of 24 shots after replacing Philipp Grubauer after the first period.
