PHILADELPHIA — Chris Kunitz scored his second goal just 18 seconds into the third period to cap a four-goal rally and lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.


Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy also scored goals for the Atlantic Division-leading Penguins, who won their third straight game.


Jakub Voracek had two power-play goals, Zac Rinaldo and Kimmo Timonen also scored for the Flyers, who blew a 4-1 lead after the first period.


Both starting goalies — Philadelphia’s Ilya Bryzgalov and Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury — were pulled after allowing four goals.


Scott Hartnell had his tying goal disallowed near the midpoint of the third period because his stick was above the crossbar when he deflected Timonen’s shot into the net.


Bruins 4, Maple Leafs 2


BOSTON — Tyler Seguin had two goals and an assist and Patrice Bergeron had one of each to lead the Boston Bruins to a victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Anton Khudobin stopped 25 shots for Boston, which blew leads in each of its previous two games and lost both.


Devils 3, Sabres 2


NEWARK, N.J.— David Clarkson and Patrik Elias scored in a shootout and the New Jersey Devils rallied from a late two-goal deficit to defeat the Buffalo Sabres, snapping a season-high six game winless streak.


Elias and Adam Henrique got the Devils to the overtime, scoring in the final 6 1/2 minutes, with Elias tying the game on a rebound with 66 seconds left in regulation.


Rangers 2, Islanders 1


UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Marian Gaborik scored a power-play goal 42 seconds into overtime, and the New York Rangers rallied for a victory over the New York Islanders.


Gaborik took a feed in the high slot from Rick Nash, who got the Rangers even at 1 with 5:23 left in regulation, and fired in a shot for his eighth of the season and first in nine games.


The Rangers got their third power play of the night — the only advantages for either team — when Michael Del Zotto was hauled down as he crashed in on Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov 21 seconds into the extra session.


Capitals 7, Panthers 1


WASHINGTON — John Erskine, Wojtek Wolski, John Carlson and Mike Ribeiro all scored before the game was 8½ minutes old, and the Washington Capitals climbed out of a tie for last in the Eastern Conference by beating the Florida Panthers.


Canadiens 4, Hurricanes 2


RALEIGH, N.C. — Brandon Prust and Lars Eller each had a goal and two assists to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a win over the Carolina Hurricanes.


Eller’s goal at 6:09 of the third gave Montreal the lead for good and P.K. Subban added a power-play goal at 7:56 to make it 4-2.


Blue Jackets 2, Canucks 1


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Matt Calvert carried the puck almost from end to end, twice avoiding opposing players, before skating to the slot and scoring on a rising wrist shot to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks.


Jets 2, Lightning 1


TAMPA, Fla. — Bryan Little scored a tiebreaking goal late in the third period, Al Montoya made 28 saves, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Little slid the puck from in-close past goalie Anders Lindback with 4:08 to play. Winnipeg also got a goal from Eric Tangradi.


Red Wings 3, Oilers 0


DETROIT — Jimmy Howard made 22 saves, and Jakub Kindl and Cory Emmerton scored in the second period to lift the Detroit Red Wings over the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 on Thursday night.


Justin Abdelkader’s empty-net goal put the game out of reach.
