Blackhawks win in OT, stay undefeated at 6-0

Chicago beats Detroit, 2-1; Caps finally win

 

CHICAGO — Nick Leddy scored 2:45 into overtime and the Chicago Blackhawks improved to 6-0 — the best start in franchise history — with a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.
 
After taking a cross-ice pass from Viktor Stalberg, Leddy fired from the left circle and beat Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard with a shot that slipped just under his glove.
 
Detroit’s Johan Franzen connected early in the third to tie the game at 1 and set up overtime.
 
Duncan Keith scored a power-play goal in the first period for Chicago, and Corey Crawford finished with 29 saves in his fifth start in six games.
 
Howard, who has started all five of Detroit’s games, made 25 saves.
 
The Blackhawks started 5-0 in 1971-72 — Hall of Famer Bobby Hull’s final season in Chicago — and matched it on Saturday night with a 3-2 win in Columbus.

 

 

CAPITALS 3, SABRES 2
WASHINGTON — Alex Ovechkin scored his first goal of the season, and Washington became the last NHL team to get a win.
 
After a fruitless first week, Ovechkin found the net with a one-timer from the left circle on a power play with 14:49 remaining in the game. Joel Ward had a goal and an assist, John Erskine also scored, and Michal Neuvirth made 22 saves for the Capitals, who had opened with four consecutive losses for the first time since the 1993-94 season.
 
Marcus Foligno and Tyler Ennis scored, and Ryan Miller made 27 saves for the Sabres, who have lost three straight after opening the season with a pair of wins.

 
PENGUINS 2, SENATORS 1, SO
OTTAWA — Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and James Neal scored in the shootout to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a victory against the Ottawa Senators.
 
Neal also scored in regulation to help the Penguins snap a two-game skid.
 
Colin Greening scored a second-period goal for the Senators, and Jason Spezza and Kyle Turris beat Marc-Andre Fleury in the shootout. But Milan Michalek was stopped with Ottawa’s first attempt.
 
Craig Anderson made 33 saves for the Senators, while Fleury stopped 31 shots.
