Esa Lindell and Jason Dickinson also scored, and Tyler Sequin had two assists for Dallas, which extended its point streak to 12 games (11-0-1) for the first time since 2002-03. It was the fifth time in franchise history Dallas won seven straight games, most recently in 2008.

Lightning 5, Sabres 2

Cedric Paquette and Ondrej Palat netted short-handed goals 49 seconds apart on the same penalty kill in Tampa Bay’s win over visiting Buffalo.

The two goals broke open a 3-2 game midway through the third period and helped Tampa Bay to its third straight win and sixth in its past eight games.

Rangers 3, Wild 2 (OT)

Tony DeAngelo scored 32 seconds into overtime for host New York, which mounted a late comeback to edge Minnesota.

The Rangers won the overtime faceoff and maintained control of the puck until DeAngelo weaved his way into the open slot and beat Alex Stalock from point-blank range.

Brady Skjei scored in the first period and Chris Kreider forced overtime by scoring on the power play with 2:50 left for the Rangers, who have won two straight and three of four. Zach Parise and Ryan Donato scored for the Wild.

Blue Jackets 1, Senators 0

Oliver Bjorkstrand’s goal 21 seconds into the third period and Joonas Korpisalo’s 25 saves gave Columbus the win over visiting Ottawa.

Korpisalo improved to 4-0-0 with a .922 save percentage over his past four starts. The shutout was the second of Korpisalo’s career, and his first since Feb. 25, 2017, against the New York Islanders.

The goaltender was solid throughout but came up especially big on a pair of Ottawa scoring chances in the third period. Korpisalo stopped a Connor Brown breakaway at 9:45, then stopped a point-blank shot from Anthony Duclair with 10 seconds remaining.
