NEW YORK – Martin St. Louis’ day started way better than it finished.
The former Tampa Bay Lightning star got his wish when he was dealt to the New York Rangers on NHL trade deadline day. He then got into the lineup with his new team right away, but wasn’t able to celebrate his first home win on Broadway.
Tyler Bozak scored on a penalty shot and then got the winning goal 1:51 into overtime to lift Toronto to a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night after the Maple Leafs squandered a two-goal lead in the third period.
“Tonight was a gutsy comeback,” St. Louis said. “Unfortunately we didn’t get the extra point, but I was happy to come here and just break the ice.”
Flyers 6, Capitals 4
In Philadelphia, Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek each scored two goals, and Michael Raffl and Steve Downie also tallied to lead the Flyers to a victory over Washington.
Canadiens 4, Ducks 3 (SO)
In Anaheim, Andrei Markov scored in the sixth round of the shootout, and Montreal beat the NHL-leading Ducks for its sixth victory in eight games.
Flames 4, Senators 1
In Calgary, Markus Granlund scored his first NHL goal and fellow Finnish rookie Joni Ortio picked up his first career victory to lead the Flames.
