WASHINGTON — Tom Wilson scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 7:20 left and the Washington Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 on Thursday night for their second victory in six games this season between the rivals.

Nicklas Backstrom scored his team-leading ninth goal of the season, and T.J. Oshie had one for the highlight reel in the third period when he dived to poke the puck one-handed past Tristan Jarry.

DEVILS 4, SABRES 3: Pavel Zacha converted Jesper Bratt’s drop pass 1:17 into overtime and New Jersey rallied from a pair of one-goal deficits at Buffalo.

The Devils snapped a three-game skid by beating an injury-depleted Sabres opponent.

Buffalo played without captain Jack Eichel, who was scratched after testing a lower-body injury during the pregame skate. And the Sabres then lost starting goalie Linus Ullmark, who was sidelined after stopping all 15 shots he faced in the first period.

BLACKHAWKS 2, BLUE JACKETS 0: Patrick Kane broke a scoreless tie in the third period with his 399th career goal, Malcolm Subban got his first shutout of the season and Chicago won at Columbus.

LIGHTNING 3, HURRICANES 1: Curtis McElhinney stopped 31 shots and picked up an assist to lead Tampa Bay to a win at home.

Mikhail Sergachev, Yanni Gourde and Barclay Goodrow scored for Tampa Bay, which won three of the four straight meetings between the teams.

PANTHERS 3, STARS 2: Frank Vatrano scored the go-ahead goal with 3:10 remaining and Florida stunned visiting Dallas with a late comeback.

Aleksander Barkov and Anton Stralman also scored in the final 6 1/2 minutes as the Panthers overcame a 2-0 deficit. Sergei Bobrovsky made 37 saves.

SENATORS 6, FLAMES 1: Colin White scored twice, Matt Murray made 29 saves and Ottawa won at home.

Drake Batherson, Erik Gudbranson, Connor Brown and Erik Brannstrom also scored for Ottawa, with Batherson running his goals streak to four games.

Milan Lucic scored for Calgary in the first of three straight games between the teams.

RED WINGS 5, PREDATORS 2: Sam Gagner scored three goals, ending a 17-game drought that lasted nearly a year, and Detroit beat visiting Nashville.

Luke Glendening and Adam Erne also scored for Detroit, which set a season high for goals. Jonathan Bernier made 37 saves, improving to 11-5-0 in 18 career games against Nashville.
