Jackets win with rare scoring punch

Posted: Monday, November 10, 2003

COLUMBUS, Ohio Enforcer Jody Shelley had his first career two-goal game and the Columbus Blue Jackets rediscovered their power play in a 4-3 victory Sunday over the Calgary Flames.

Shelley, who led the NHL in penalty minutes last season, had four goals in his previous 145 games and only one career two-point game.

Columbus was 3-for-8 on the power play after failing to convert on its last 12 opportunities. Geoff Sanderson and Andrew Cassels also scored for the Blue Jackets.

Hurricanes 1, Lightning 1

RALEIGH, N.C. Marty Murray scored his first goal in a Carolina uniform and goaltender Jamie Storr held off Tampa Bay in overtime to help the Hurricanes tie.

Tampa Bay was outshot 38-22 in regulation. The Lightning had a 4-1 shot advantage in overtime but couldn't beat Storr.

Avalanche 4, Blackhawks 3, OT

CHICAGO Steve Konowalchuk scored his second goal of the game on a deflection with 5.5 seconds remaining in overtime to give Colorado the victory.

Konowalchuk scored on a mid-air deflection with 8:44 left in the third period to tie it at 3. He has five points in three games with the Avalanche since being acquired from Washington on Oct. 23.

Colorado's Alex Tanguay also scored in the third period to help the Avalanche rally from a 3-1 deficit.

Mighty Ducks 2, Coyotes 1, OT

ANAHEIM, Calif. Petr Sykora scored 3:43 into overtime and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 27 saves as the Anaheim Mighty Ducks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1 Sunday night.

Steve Rucchin scored a short-handed goal for the Ducks, who returned from a six-game road trip that ended with overtime losses at St. Louis and Phoenix.

Giguere, last season's playoff MVP, improved to 2-8.

His only other victory also came in overtime, Oct. 22 against Philadelphia.

Sergei Fedorov assisted for his first point in five games and the 965th of his career, tying Maurice Richard for 71st place on the NHL career list.
