NHL Capsules

CHICAGO - Antti Raanta made 26 saves in his first NHL shutout, and Brandon Saad scored as the Chicago Blackhawks beat Los Angeles 1-0 on Monday night and sent the Kings to their first three-game losing streak in a year.

Raanta improved to 10-1-3 while bouncing back from one of his worst performances. He allowed two late goals in Chicago's 6-5 shootout loss at St. Louis on Saturday.

Saad netted the only goal in this one in the first period. Chicago, which leads the NHL with 158 goals, played its lowest-scoring game since a 2-1 shootout win at Dallas on Nov. 29.

Los Angeles' Martin Jones made 29 saves in his second straight loss after beginning his career with eight consecutive wins, tying the NHL record.

The Kings are on their first three-game slide since dropping the opening three games of last season in January.

Chicago forward Patrick Kane had a career-best point streak snapped at 14 games. He had eight goals and 17 assists in the surge.

Justin Abdelkader, Pavel Datsyuk, Drew Miller, and Patrick Eaves scored for the Red Wings, who have lost two of three.

The teams combined for five goals in a back-and-forth third period, but Nashville never relinquishing the lead.

Wilson put the Predators ahead 1:54 into the game with a wrist shot from the high slot that beat goalie Jimmy Howard on the glove side. It was the first shot on Howard, who had been out with a knee injury since Dec. 10.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP)—Kyle Turris' goal helped Ottawa beat Washington and earn its first winning streak in 51 days. The Senators have won three straight at home for the first time this season.

Mika Zibanejad and Clarke MacArthur, with an empty-net goal, also scored for Ottawa (17-18-7). Craig Anderson stopped 34 shots. He made 14 saves in the second period and 11 more in the third.

Joel Ward scored the lone goal for the Capitals (20-15-5), who have lost back-to-back games. Phillip Grubauer, in his fourth straight start, made 35 saves.

With just over two minutes remaining, Anderson made a great glove save on Eric Fehr to preserve the lead.

FLYERS 4, CANUCKS 3, SO
