Brendan Gallagher had a goal and an assist for the Canadiens, tying it late in the second period. Max Pacioretty got his 30th goal and captain Brian Gionta also scored in an impressive victory before the arrival of new acquisition Thomas Vanek.

Tim Jackman, Francois Beauchemin and Daniel Winnik scored early goals for the Ducks, who had won three straight. Jonas Hiller made 27 saves in Anaheim’s first loss since the Olympic break.

Dustin Tokarski stopped 39 shots in his debut for the Canadiens, making several sharp saves in his eighth NHL appearance.

MAPLE LEAFS 3, RANGERS 2, OT

NEW YORK • Tyler Bozak scored on a penalty shot and then got the winning goal 1:51 into overtime to lift Toronto and spoil the New York debut of Martin St. Louis.

Bozak got to a loose puck in front that bounced past Rangers defensemen Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh and slammed a shot past Henrik Lundqvist to snap the Maple Leafs’ three-game losing streak (0-1-2) and stretch New York’s skid to three (0-2-1).

Toronto built a 2-0 lead on Bozak’s second-period goal and Nazem Kadri’s tally in the third. The Rangers tied it on short-handed goals by McDonagh and Dominic Moore 1:19 apart.

Lundqvist bounced back from two straight losses in which he gave up 10 goals, finishing with 26 saves. Toronto’s Jonathan Bernier had dropped two straight after regulation while allowing nine goals. He stopped 35 shots.

FLYERS 6, CAPITALS 4

PHILADELPHIA • Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek each had two goals, and Michael Raffl and Steve Downie also scored to lead Philadelphia.

Andrew McDonald had an assist in his first game since he was acquired from the New York Islanders. The Flyers won for the seventh time in eight games.

The Flyers chased Washington goalie Braden Holtby after taking a 4-0 lead early in the second period. Holtby was replaced by Philipp Grubauer for the rest of the game — and could face some competition the rest of the season. The Capitals acquired Jaroslav Halak from Buffalo for backup goalie Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Rostislav Klesla at the NHL trade deadline earlier in the day.

Alex Ovechkin, Joel Ward and Troy Brouwer nearly rallied the Capitals with three straight goals in the third. Brooks Laich also scored.

FLAMES 4, SENATORS 1

CALGARY, Alberta • Markus Granlund scored his first NHL goal and fellow Finnish rookie Joni Ortio picked up his first career victory to lead Calgary.

Paul Byron, Joe Colborne and Mike Cammalleri also scored for the Flames, and rookie Sean Monahan had two assists. Ortio, making his second start, finished with 30 saves to help Calgary win for the sixth time in its last seven home games.
