Posted: Tuesday, December 09, 2003

DETROIT Brett Hull moved into third place on the NHL career goal list by scoring 1:51 into overtime Monday night of the Detroit Red Wings' 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Hull's 732nd goal snapped a tie with Marcel Dionne and moved the Red Wings forward behind only Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801). Hull, who also had an assist, one-timed a shot from the bottom of the left circle to give him a goal in his seventh straight game.

Los Angeles rallied from a 2-0 third-period deficit on goals by Mike Cammalleri and Martin Straka to force overtime.

Straka tied it at 2 with 2:10 remaining after a turnover by Steve Thomas along the boards. Straka beat Dominik Hasek between the pads with a shot from the bottom of the right circle.

Cammalleri brought Los Angeles within 2-1 when he scored with 9:06 remaining.

Brendan Shanahan and Pavel Datsyuk had the other Detroit goals.

Shanahan's goal was his 544th, tying him for 19th place with Hall of Famer Maurice Richard.

Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios left the game early in the second period with a knee injury. He collided with Cammalleri late in the first period and went down holding the knee. He returned for the first shift of the second period, but went to the locker room after that.

Shanahan opened the scoring 2:27 in when his wrist shot from the bottom of the left circle beat Roman Cechmanek, who was deep in his crease. Datsyuk's power-play goal at 6:25 made it 2-0. He put a cross-ice pass from Hull into the open side of the net from the bottom of the right circle.

Flyers 3, Canadiens 2

MONTREAL Magnus Ragnarsson and John LeClair scored 2:06 apart late in the third period to lift Philadelphia over Montreal.

Ragnarsson scored his third of the season with 3:19 left to tie it at 2, and LeClair netted the winner at 18:47.

Kim Johnsson also scored for the Flyers, who have lost just once in 17 games (13-1-3).

The Canadiens ended a season-high five-game unbeaten streak (3-0-2).

Pierre Dagenais assisted on Richard Zednik's goal late in the second period, and scored his second of the season midway through the third to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead.

Bruins 2, Senators 2

BOSTON Glen Murray had a goal and an assist to lead Boston to a tie with Ottawa.

Murray gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead with a breakaway goal 6:45 into the second period.

Ottawa's Patrick Lalime made 21 saves in his return from a bout with the flu that forced him to miss four games.

The Senators tied it with 3:39 remaining in the second when defenseman Wade Redden scored his seventh of the season.

Avalanche 4, Capitals 1

DENVER Andrei Nikolishin scored against his former team, and Rob Blake had a goal and an assist to help Colorado stretch its unbeaten streak to six games.

Teemu Selanne and Alex Tanguay had a goal each, and Joe Sakic had three assists for Colorado, 4-0-2 in its last six games. David Aebischer stopped 22 shots 12 in the third period for the Avalanche who beat Washington for the first time since Oct. 17, 2000.

Sergei Gonchar scored for Washington, which lost its third straight. The Capitals hadn't lost a road game to Colorado since March 26, 1999.
