NHL roundup: Oilers dump Ducks in shootout

Connor McDavid scored in the third round of a shootout to give the Edmonton Oilers a wild 6-5 victory over the host Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.

Anaheim’s Rickard Rakell scored a hat trick, including two goals in the final 21 seconds to send the game into overtime.

Ryan Strome scored two goals, McDavid had three assists and Draisaitl had a goal and an assist for Edmonton, which won its third straight game and swept its back-to-back weekend trip to Los Angeles and Anaheim. Anton Slepyshev and Iiro Pakarinen also scored goals for the Oilers.

Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and three assists, and Adam Henrique also scored for Anaheim, which lost for just the second time in its past 13 home games (10-2-1) against the Oilers. Corey Perry logged three assists.

Wild 3, Sharks 2 (OT)

Jared Spurgeon scored the game-winner with 12 seconds left in overtime as Minnesota produced three unanswered goals to beat visiting San Jose.

The goal was Spurgeon’s eighth of the season and accounted for the 200th point of his NHL career. Spurgeon notched his 55th career goal — a number that ties him with Brent Burns for the most by a Minnesota defenseman in franchise history.

Matt Cullen and Eric Staal also scored for Minnesota, while Joakim Ryan and Chris Tierney had goals for the Sharks.

Red Wings 3, Rangers 2 (OT)

Trevor Daley tipped in a Frans Nielsen shot with six seconds remaining in overtime, giving Detroit a victory at New York.

Daley’s seventh goal of the season was the only shot on net during the overtime session. Andreas Athanasiou and Darren Helm had the regulation goals for the Red Wings, who won for the second time in as many nights. Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard turned aside 36 shots.

J.T. Miller and Jesper Fast scored for the Rangers, who have lost seven straight for the first time since 2006. New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves.

Sabres 4, Bruins 1

After the Rangers traded Rick Nash to the Bruins on Sunday morning, the left winger was stymied by goalie Chad Johnson as host Buffalo earned an easy victory against Boston.

Johnson made 34 saves and the Sabres got goals from Benoit Pouliot, Kyle Okposo, Evan Rodrigues and Marco Scandella.

Charlie McAvoy scored the lone goal for Boston, which dropped its second straight to finish its road trip at 2-3-0.

Predators 4, Blues 0

Colton Sissons scored the only goal Nashville would need five minutes into the game, and Pekka Rinne turned away 27 shots while shutting out visiting St. Louis.

Nashville won its fourth straight game, improved to 9-2-2 in its past 13 contests. Rinne recorded his sixth shutout of the season and 49th of his 11-year NHL career, and Kevin Fiala, Scott Hartnell and Austin Watson added goals for the Predators.

The loss was the season-worst sixth straight for the Blues, who have scored two goals or fewer in eight of their past 11 games.
