Jeff Skinner added a pair of goals for the Hurricanes, who finished seventh in the Metropolitan Division and outside of the playoff picture.

Wayne Simmonds scored twice for the Flyers, who had already wrapped up third place in the Metropolitan. Philadelphia will face the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs.

Cal Heeter made 33 saves in his NHL debut for the Flyers, before stopping one of two shots in the shootout.

Anton Khudobin made 39 saves and stopped all three of shots in the shootout for the Carolina.

ISLANDERS 4, SABRES 3, SO

BUFFALO, N.Y. • Brock Nelson scored with 3:44 left in regulation to force overtime and then netted the decisive shootout goal to lift the New York Islanders to a win over Buffalo in a season-ending matchup of non-playoff teams.

Anders Lee scored twice for the Islanders (34-37-11), who finished with three straight wins. Anders Nilsson stopped 36 shots through overtime and all three he faced in the shootout. Nilsson clinched the victory by using his glove to sweep away a puck that got away from Ville Leino as he drove to the net.

The Islanders rallied from a 2-0 deficit.

Torrey Mitchell, Jamie McBain and Matt Ellis scored for Buffalo (21-51-10), which had already clinched the NHL’s worst record. The Sabres went 0-6-1 in their final seven games.

The Sabres wrapped up one of the franchise’s worst seasons in 44 years of existence. With 150 goals scored, Buffalo set the NHL-low in the league’s post-expansion era that began in 1967.

Buffalo got off to a 2-13-1 start, and ended with a 2-16-2 skid.

SENATORS 3, PENGUINS 2, SO

PITTSBURGH • Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to help Ottawa beat Pittsburgh and finish the season on a five-game winning streak.

The teams were tied 2-2 after two periods and didn’t score in the third or overtime.

Kyle Turris added a goal in the shootout for the Senators. Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner stopped Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen to seal the win.

Turris scored his 26th goal in regulation, and Mark Stone had his fourth for Ottawa, which will miss the playoffs for the second time in six years and first since 2011.

Jokinen scored on the power play in regulation, his 21st of the season, and Lee Stempniak added his 12th for the Penguins, who rested captain Sidney Crosby and several others for their final game before the playoffs.
