NEW YORK, N.Y. - Chris Kelly scored all three goals for Ottawa, including the go-ahead tally with 2:24 remaining in the Senators' 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night.

Kelly scored a short-handed goal in the second period and completed his hat trick into an empty net in the game's final second. Kelly doubled his season goal total to six.

Pascal Leclaire made 25 saves for his second win of the season for Ottawa, which won for just the third time in 11 games. The struggling Senators (12-14-2) had been shut out in their previous two games at home.

Brandon Prust scored a short-handed goal for the Rangers (16-12-1), who lost for only the third time in nine games. Henrik Lundqvist finished with 22 saves.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)—Daniel Briere scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:44 left and Philadelphia held on to beat the New York Islanders yet again.

Philadelphia is 3-0 against the Islanders this season and has won 21 of the past 23 meetings between the Atlantic Division rivals. New York had taken a 2-1 lead in the third period on goals by P.A. Parenteau and Frans Nielsen in a span of 36 seconds.

Matt Carle and Andreas Nodl also scored for Philadelphia, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots for the win.

Dwayne Roloson made 24 saves for the Islanders, who lost for the 17th time in 18 games (1-14-3) overall. New York went 0 for 4 on the power play and has failed on each of its past 36 advantages over 11 games.

CHICAGO (AP)—Dave Bolland scored two power-play goals, and Chicago overcame the loss of star forward Patrick Kane in the opening minute and beat Calgary.

Bryan Bickell and Jonathan Toews also scored power-play goals for Chicago.

Kane sustained an undisclosed lower body injury 46 seconds in and didn't return.

Jarome Iginla and Anton Babchuk scored on the power play for the Flames. Babchuk's goal was his first since joining Calgary in a trade from Carolina on Nov. 17.

Chicago rookie Corey Crawford started for the fourth time in five games and made 24 saves.

Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 28 shots.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)—Ilya Bryzgalov shut out his former team for the third time since leaving Anaheim, Taylor Pyatt scored on a deflection and Shane Doan connected during a power play to lead Phoenix.

Bryzgalov made 39 saves for his second shutout of the season and 18th of his NHL career. He was waived by the Ducks during the 2007-08 season and claimed by the Coyotes.

Lee Stempniak, playing in his 400th NHL regular-season game, scored into an empty net with 2:56 remaining.

The Ducks, who lost 4-0 to Detroit on Friday, were shut out in consecutive games for the first time since March 2008. It was the first time they were blanked in back-to-back home games since October 2003.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP)—Alexander Steen scored his second goal 6:11 into the third period and added an assist as St. Louis snapped a five-game losing streak.

Matt D'Agostini had a goal and an assist, and Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves as St. Louis bounced back from a 2-1 overtime loss in Edmonton on Saturday when top centre Andy McDonald sustained an upper body injury.

Jannik Hansen and Kevin Bieksa scored, and Roberto Luongo finished with 25 saves for the Canucks, who had won four straight.
