Canucks cool off Panthers


Daniel Sedin scored his second goal of the night on a power play at 2:21 of overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks stopped the Florida Panthers’ 12-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Monday.

Sedin snapped a shot past Roberto Luongo with Jaromir Jagr in the penalty box for hooking, tying Markus Naslund’s franchise record for goals with 346.

With Vancouver celebrating on the ice, the teams came together near the benches with a lot of pushing and shoving. It appeared to start when the Canucks’ Derek Dorsett approached the Florida bench after Sedin scored the winner.

The Panthers were making their way to the locker room but turned back after Dorsett shoved backup goalie Al Montoya.

A number of players from both teams then began throwing punches as referees tried to break up the fights.

Sharks 5, Flames 4

In Calgary, Joel Ward scored midway through the third period to help San Jose hold off the Flames.

Kings 4, Red Wings 2

In Los Angeles, Anze Kopitar had a power-play goal and three assists, and Alec Martinez scored the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period as the Kings beat Detroit.

Rangers 2, Bruins 1

In New York, Jesper Fast scored on a deflection in front with 1:42 to play and the Rangers rallied to edge Boston.
