Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

PITTS­BURGH: Gabriel Lan­deskog redi­rected a shot by Nathan MacK­in­non past Marc An­dre Fleury 22 sec­onds into over­time to lift Colorado by Pitts­burgh 4-3 on Mon­day night. Lan­deskog tied the game with 6:32 left in reg­u­la­tion with a power-play goal and his sec­ond of the night handed the de­fend­ing Stan­ley Cup cham­pi­ons their first loss of the sea­son. Jarome Iginla and Pa­trick Wier­cioch also scored for the Avalanche, who never led un­til Lan­deskog’s game-win­ner. MacK­in­non had two as­sists and Calvin Pickard stopped 28 shots for Colorado. Matt Cullen had a goal and an as­sist for the Pen­guins while Phil Kes­sel and Trevor Da­ley also scored. Fleury made 27 saves.


For the third straight game, Chris Krei­der had a goal and an as­sist for New York. Krei­der, who signed a four-year, $18.5 mil­lion con­tract on July 22, has three goals and three as­sists in New York’s first three games. Ac­cord­ing to the team, he is the first Ranger since Brian Leetch in 1992-93 to tally six points in New York’s first three games. He also be­came the first New York for­ward to record six points in three games to start a sea­son since Bernie Ni­cholls and Dar­ren Tur­cotte in 1990 -91. Marc Staal, Rick Nash, Kevin Hayes, rookie Jimmy Ve­sey, Mats Zuc­carello and Michael Grab­ner also scored for the Rangers, who have won two of their first three games this sea­son. Martin Jones fin­ished with 22 saves for San Jose. New York goal­tender Antti Raanta made 26 saves on 30 shots.


Mike Green scored three times for his first hat trick and Dar­ren Helm had two goals to help Detroit win in their last home opener at Joe Louis Arena. Green scored twice in the first pe­riod and his third goal re­stored a three-goal lead with 6:36 left in the game. Helm scored on a break­away in be­tween Green’s goals in the first pe­riod and added a sec­ond goal with 2:56 left in the third. Ryan Dzin­gel’s short-handed goal mid­way through the sec­ond pe­riod pulled the Sen­a­tors within two goals. Detroit’s Petr Mrazek made 13 of his 31 saves in the sec­ond pe­riod. An­drew Ham­mond stopped 20 shots in his first start of the sea­son for Ot­tawa. The Red Wings are leav­ing the venue they have called home since the 1979-80 sea­son next year for a new arena nearby.


David Pas­tr­nak scored his team-lead­ing fourth goal of the sea­son for Bos­ton. The 20year-old Pas­tr­nak ex­tended his point streak to three games while suit­ing up in his 100th ca­reer game. Win­nipeg cap­tain Blake Wheeler opened the scor­ing 10 min­utes into the game. Bos­ton trailed for all of 19 sec­onds, how­ever, as Do­minic Moore tied things up at 10:19 of the first pe­riod. Rookie Bran­don Carlo’s first ca­reer goal added in­sur­ance for the Bru­ins with 1:59 re­main­ing in the third pe­riod and Zdeno Chara scored an empty-net­ter in­side the fi­nal minute. Bos­ton’s Tuukka Rask turned away 34 of 35 shots, while Win­nipeg’s Con­nor Helle­buyck stopped 21 of 24. — AP
