Albany Times Union - - SPORTS -

Dy­lan Larkin scored with 5.1 sec­onds re­main­ing in over­time, cap­ping an im­pres­sive late come­back by the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 vic­tory over the New York Rangers on Fri­day night.

An­dreas Athana­siou, who had tied the game with 2:02 re­main­ing in the third pe­riod, back­handed a pass to Larkin, who redi­rected the puck past Hen­rik Lundqvist for his sev­enth goal of the sea­son. The Rangers led 2-0 af­ter two pe­ri­ods but had their four-game win­ning streak snapped.

Detroit has won five of six af­ter win­ning just one of its first 10 games.

Kevin Shat­tenkirk and Neal Pionk scored 40 sec­onds apart dur­ing an ex­tended New York power play late in the sec­ond pe­riod, but Justin Ab­delka­der be­gan the Detroit rally with a goal early in the third.

Lundqvist re­mained a win be­hind Hall of Famer Jac­ques Plante for sev­enth place on the ca­reer list.

Maple Leafs 6, Devils 1: John Tavares scored his ninth goal of the sea­son, Pa­trick Mar­leau had his 600th NHL as­sist and Toronto beat New Jersey. Nazem Kadri, Con­nor Brown, An­dreas Johns­son, Mor­gan Rielly and Tyler En­nis also scored, and Fred­erik An­der­sen made 38 saves. Toronto im­proved to 11-5-0 with its third straight vic­tory.

Colum­bus’ Nhl-worst power play scored twice and Sergei Bo­brovsky made 33 saves in a vic­tory over the de­fend­ing Stan­ley Cup cham­pion Wash­ing­ton. Blues 4, Sharks 0: Chad John­son made 32 saves for his first shutout with St. Louis, help­ing the Blues beat San Jose. Alex Pi­etrangelo, Ryan O’reilly, Jaden Schwartz and Alexan­der Steen scored.

Jets 5, Avalanche 2: Blake Wheeler had an empty-net goal and four as­sists in Win­nipeg’s vic­tory over Colorado. Wheeler ex­tended his point streak to nine games.

Note: The Bru­ins say goal­tender Tuukka Rask has been granted a leave of ab­sence from the team for a per­sonal mat­ter. The team didn’t of­fer an ex­pla­na­tion, but gen­eral man­ager Don Sweeney said shortly af­ter the an­nounce­ment on Fri­day it was not health re­lated. He also asked for pri­vacy on be­half of Rask.
