Zuccarello floated a puck over Detroit’s Jimmy Howard when he drove to the net, putting New York’s 45th shot of the night into the net. That was enough for Henrik Lundqvist to earn his third shutout of the season and 48th in his NHL career.

Lundqvist, who made his sixth straight start, stopped 38 shots. Gustav Nyquist slipped a shot behind him with 44.5 seconds remaining, but Lundqvist reached back to cover the puck just before it crossed the line.

Howard made 47 saves.

The Red Wings were shut out for the second straight game, both times 1-0. Detroit, which hasn’t scored a power-play goal in six games in 2014, was beaten at Anaheim on Sunday.

The Rangers bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday and completed a 3-1 homestand. New York is 9-3-1 in its past 13 games.

PREDATORS 4, FLYERS 3, SO

Josi beat Flyers goalie Steve Mason for the last of a combined five shootout goals to give the Predators the needed road win as they chase a playoff spot.

Shea Weber scored a go-ahead goal and had two assists in his first game against Philadelphia since the Flyers made him a $110 million, 14-year offer in the summer of 2012. The Predators matched the deal, keeping him in Nashville. They had to be glad they had their captain against the Flyers.

Weber snapped a tie game with a power-play goal early in the third period. Wayne Simmonds tied the game 3-all with a power-play goal with 1:24 left in regulation to send the game into OT.

Eric Nystrom and David Legwand also scored in regulation for Nashville. Brayden Schenn and Andrej Meszaros scored for the Flyers.

CANADIENS 5, SENATORS 4, OT

OTTAWA, Ontario • Carey Price made 40 saves and P.K. Subban scored the overtime winner and Montreal defeated Ottawa.

Subban scored 23 seconds into the extra period as his shot trickled through Craig Anderson’s legs.

Tomas Plekanec scored twice and Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais also scored for the Canadiens, who defeated the Senators for the first time this season.

Clarke MacArthur, Erik Karlsson, Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa. Anderson stopped 18 shots.

Trailing 4-3, the Canadiens caught a break on the tying goal midway through the third. Plekanec broke in alone and while Anderson made the initial save, defenseman Jared Cowen watched as the puck went in off his skate.
