DeAngelo helps Hurricanes beat Rangers 6-3

Tony DeAngelo had a goal and two assists against his former team as the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New York Rangers 6-3 on Friday night.

Sebastian Aho also had a goal and two assists, while Vincent Trocheck, Seth Jarvis, Jesper Fast — another former Ranger — and Nino Niederreiter also scored in the first meeting of the season between the top two teams in the Metropolitan Division. Teuvo Teravainen and Andrei Svechnikov had two assists apiece, and Frederik Andersen stopped 20 shots in Carolina’s third straight win.

Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider each had a power-play goal and an assist for the Rangers. Greg McKegg, an ex-Hurricanes player, got his first goal of the season. Alexander Georgiev, playing for the first time in more than a week, made 29 saves.

Since they were shut out for the first time this season Jan. 13 by Columbus, the Hurricanes have totaled 17 goals in three games. That matches the team’s best goal production in a three-game span this season.

PENGUINS 5, BLUE JACKETS 2

Sidney Crosby notched his 15th career hat trick and added an assist to lead Pittsburgh to its fourth straight win.

Brian Dumoulin had a goal and two assists, Mike Matheson added a goal and an assist, and Bryan Rust had two assists for the Penguins, who have won 15 of its last 17 games.

Casey DeSmith stopped 10 shots in the first period before being pulled and replaced in the second by Tristan Jarry, who stopped all 15 shots he faced.

Gus Nyquist and Boone Jenner scored for the Blue Jackets, who have lost four of their last five home games. Joonas Korpisalo had 26 saves.

ISLANDERS 4, COYOTES 0

Ilya Sorokin stopped 17 shots for his fourth shutout of the season, Brock Nelson scored twice and New York got its third straight win.

Scott Mayfield had a goal and an assist, and Austin Czarnik also scored to help the Islanders win for the seventh time in nine games (7-1-1). Sorokin, who has seven career shutouts, got his sixth win in his last eight starts and has only allowed 15 goals over that stretch. The 26-year-old goaltender is 11-7-5 in his second NHL season.

Scott Wedgewood finished with 31 saves but the Coyotes snapped a two-game winning streak in the second of a four-game trip. Arizona failed to score in both meetings against New York this season, losing 3-0 at home on Oct. 23.

STARS 5, RED WINGS 4, OT

Roope Hintz scored a power-play goal at 2:51 of overtime to lift Dallas.

It was the second win in a row for the Stars, who rallied from a one-goal deficit late in the third period to send it to the extra period.

After Tyler Bertuzzi gave the Red Wings a 4-3 lead with a power-play goal with 6:14 left in regulation, Jason Robertson tied it for the Stars with 1:13 remaining.

Ryan Suter, Joel Kiviranta and Esa Lindell also scored for Dallas, which outshot Detroit 31-28. Braden Holtby made 24 saves and improved to 9-0-2 in his last 11 starts against Detroit.

Robby Fabbri, Pius Suter and Dylan Larkin had the other goals for the Red Wings, whose modest two-game winning streak came to an end.

WILD 5, BLACKHAWKS 1

Ryan Hartman scored twice, Marcus Foligno had a goal and an assist, and Minnesota won for the fourth time in five games.

Calen Addison and Brandon Duhaime also had goals for the Wild.

Kappa Kahkonen stopped 35 shots for Minnesota, but didn’t face many difficult challenges beyond Dylan Strome’s goal with 5:03 to play. He was at his best while turning back Kirby Dach’s difficult wrist shot and Alex DeBrincat’s close-in drive, which he gloved, six minutes into the third period.

The Blackhawks dropped their second straight after winning four in a row.
