Washington trailed 2-0 in the first and 3-2 heading into the third period.

Jaromir Jagr's breakaway goal at 2:50 of the third period tied the game at 3 for Washington.

Hurricanes 7, Wild 3P>

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Ron Francis scored his first two goals of the season to lead Carolina over Minnesota.

Francis, the franchise's career leader in goals and assists, added two assists as the Hurricanes gave the Wild their first regulation loss of the season.

Jeff O'Neill also had two goals -- giving him a team-high eight -- and an assist for Carolina, which blew the game open with three goals in the first 6:40 of the third period.

Red Wings 4, Oilers 1

DETROIT -- Nicklas Lidstrom had three assists and Dominik Hasek stopped 27 shots as Detroit beat Edmonton for its sixth straight win.

The Red Wings outshot the Oilers 14-2 in the first period and took the lead a power-play goal by Fedorov at 12:14. Edmonton (6-4-1-0) didn't get its first shot until 11:29 into the game.

PITTSBURGH -- Stephane Richer scored the game-winner in the third period and Pittsburgh rallied from an early two-goal deficit to beat Dallas, ending an eight-game winless streak against the Stars.

Michal Rozsival and Mike Wilson also scored for the Penguins, who were 0-6-2 against the Stars since Jan. 14, 1997, including an 8-2 loss in Pittsburgh last season.

Penguins goalie Johan Hedberg preserved the victory by stopping Mike Modano on a penalty shot with 7:21 remaining. Hedberg, who played poorly in his first two starts but has keyed a 4-0-0-1 Penguins run since Rick Kehoe took over Nov. 15, turned aside 31 of 33 shots.

PHOENIX -- Mike Leclerc scored 1:49 into overtime, lifting Anaheim over Phoenix.

Phoenix goalie Sean Burke made 30 of his 31 saves in regulation to get his team into the extra period. But after denying Leclerc once, Burke couldn't react quickly enough when Matt Cullen sent a crossing pass to LecLerc at the edge of the crease.

Dan Bylsma and Marc Chouinard also scored for Anaheim.

Daniel Briere scored a power-play goal and Mike Johnson scored short-handed for Phoenix, but the Coyotes dropped their first at home.

Anaheim's Paul Kariya went without a goal for the ninth straight game, one away from matching his career-worst streak set in 1998-99.
