BOSTON — Ryan Callahan scored as the final participant in the shootout and the New York Rangers recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Tuesday night.


Henrik Lundqvist stopped 37 shots, plus three of the four attempts in the shootout. Carl Hagelin scored for the second straight game, and Derek Stepan and Anton Stralman each added an unassisted goal for the Rangers.


Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for the Bruins, who have three losses this season and two of them are to the Rangers after regulation.


David Krejci made it 3-1 with 11 minutes left, then Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand scored in the final 91 seconds to send the game into overtime.

Jussi Jokinen and Patrick Dwyer also scored for Carolina, which went 4-1-1 to conclude a six-game road trip.


With Carolina on the power play, Tlusty flipped a shot toward the net that bounced off Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador and over goalie Martin Brodeur at 7:25. Eric Stall picked up an assist, extending his point-scoring streak to 10 games.


Tlusty later added an empty-netter to seal the win. Ilya Kovalchuk and Ryan Carter scored for the Eastern Conference-leading Devils, who lost in regulation for the first time at home this season (5-1-1).


Senators 2, Sabres 0

OTTAWA — Craig Anderson made 42 saves and Erik Karlsson and Erik Condra scored goals less than two minutes apart in the second period as the Ottawa defeated the Buffalo.

Canadiens 4, Lightning 3

TAMPA, Fla. — Carey Price stopped all three shots in the shootout, David Desharnais had the lone goal in the tiebreaker, and the Montreal Canadiens rebounded after blowing a three-goal lead.

Predators 1, Sharks 0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Colin Wilson scored at 2:08 of overtime, and the Nashville Predators snapped a two-game skid.
