Nedved wrister rings in for Rangers

Posted: Monday, December 24, 2001

NEW YORK -- Petr Nedved's off-balance wrist shot with 1:01 left gave the New York Rangers a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.

Theo Fleury scored two power-play goals for New York, and Brian Leetch had two assists.

Ottawa's Wade Redden tied it at 2 at 12:51 of the third on a power play. Zdeno Chara scored an unassisted short-handed goal for the Senators.

Ottawa, which had a three-game unbeaten streak snapped, had a goal disallowed late in the third when video replays showed Ivan Ciernik kicked the puck through Mike Richter's legs.

Sharks 1, Predators 1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Petr Tenkrat scored with 35 seconds left in regulation to lift Nashville into a tie with San Jose, stretching the Predators' home unbeaten streak to 11 games.

After the Predators called a timeout, Andy Delmore fired a pass across the ice to Tenkrat, who sent in a shot from the right face-off circle for a short-handed goal.

The Sharks' goal also came with the team a man short. Owen Nolan put San Jose ahead 1-0 at 6:19 of the first period.

Red Wings 5, Blackhawks 0

CHICAGO -- Dominik Hasek stopped 23 shots for his third shutout of the season, and second straight, leading Detroit over Chicago.

Hasek stopped all 19 San Jose shots he faced in a 3-0 win Friday, and has allowed only one goal in three games.

Stars 4, Thrashers 1

ATLANTA -- Pat Verbeek scored the go-ahead goal and set up another in the third period as Dallas defeated Atlanta.

Sergei Zubov, Kirk Muller and Jamie Langenbrunner also scored for Dallas. Marty Turco won his fifth consecutive decision.

Tomi Kallio scored a power-play goal for Atlanta, which held a 32-25 shots advantage. It was Kallio's first goal in nearly a month, spanning six games played and six games missed with a concussion.

Dallas, 4-0 against Atlanta, is 9-4 over its past 13 games to move four points behind Pacific Division-leading San Jose. Atlanta has the fewest points in the league (21) and has allowed a league-high 137 goals.

Mighty Ducks 4, Coyotes 0

PHOENIX -- Andy McDonald, Denny Lambert and Marc Chouinard set an Anaheim record by scoring three goals in a 51-second span.

The Ducks' franchise record was three goals in 1:42, set Feb. 26, 1994, at Quebec.

It was the third-fastest three-goal series by an opponent in Winnipeg-Phoenix franchise history, trailing a 38-second surge by San Jose on March 29, 1994, and a 47-second outburst by the New York Islanders on Nov. 23, 1996.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves for his second shutout this season and sixth career.

Paul Kariya also scored for the Ducks.
