UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Tyler Toffoli deflected in the winning goal with 1:27 left for the Los Angeles Kings, who scored three times in the third period to stun the New York Islanders 3-2 Thursday night.
Toffoli tipped in Jake Muzzin’s drive past surprised goalie Kevin Poulin to cap the comeback. Tanner Pearson had tied it 2-2 with 7:45 left with a power-play goal in his first NHL regular-season game. Slava Voynov started the turnaround for the Kings at 5:34 of the third.
That made a winner of backup Ben Scrivens, who made 23 saves in place of regular Jonathan Quick, who strained his groin during overtime of the Kings’ shootout loss at Buffalo on Tuesday.
Aaron Ness gave the Islanders a 2-0 lead in the second period with his first NHL goal after Casey Cizikas put New York in front with his first of the season.
Bruins 3, Blue Jackets 2, OT
BOSTON — Milan Lucic scored on a breakaway with 49 seconds left in overtime to lift the Boston Bruins to a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Lucic blocked Cam Atkinson’s shot just inside the blue line and the puck took a big bounce toward the Columbus end with nobody between Lucic and Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobvrosky. Lucic corralled the puck and poked a shot between Bobvrosky’s pads.
Loui Eriksson and Shawn Thornton also scored the Bruins.
Boston goalie Chad Johnson stopped 32 shots playing for just the third time this season with starter Tuukka Rask getting a night off.
Bobvrosky made 28 saves for the Blue Jackets, who took a 1-0 lead in the first on Blake Comeau’s second goal of the season. Boston scored twice before Nick Foligno restored the tie with 3:26 left in the second period.
Lightning 5, Ducks 1
TAMPA, Fla. — Valtteri Filppula had two goals and an assist, goalie Ben Bishop won his 13th game this season and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Anaheim Ducks.
Martin St. Louis added a goal and two assists for the Lightning, who played their first home game and second overall — both victories — without star Steven Stamkos. The center, out indefinitely after breaking his right leg Monday, had surgery Tuesday in Boston and returned to Florida on Thursday.
Alex Killorn and Victor Hedman had the other Tampa Bay goals.
