Canadian teams were involved in half of the 10 games on the NHL schedule on Tuesday night and, with a few exceptions, enjoyed the evening. The Leafs, Jets and Canadiens (in overtime) all posted victories while the Flames and Canucks came up short.
Ondrej Palat scored three minutes into overtime to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. The Lightning trailed 1-0 before finally solving Flames goaltender Karri Ramo with 2:16 left in the third period.
Madison Bumgarner pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, Hunter Pence homered early and the Giants showed off their October poise, shutting down the Royals 7-1 Tuesday night in the World Series opener.
Adam Lowry's first NHL goal helped the Winnipeg Jets snap a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday. Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets (2-4-0), who won their first game at home this season.
Alex Galchenyuk scored the tying goal with 3:09 left in the third period, and David Desharnais followed that up with another less than a minute into overtime to lift the Montreal Canadiens over the Detroit Red Wings 2-1.
Phil Kessel scored two goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-2 rout over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. Nine Maple Leafs finished with at least one point, led by Kessel's three. James van Riemsdyk and Mike Santorelli had two points apiece.
