Summary of NHL games, Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Goaltender Jake Allen scored a gem against Sidney Crosby in front of the New Jersey Devils cage who inflicted a 5-2 loss on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

In the second, Crosby recovered a loose puck and tried to score by passing from left to right in front of the net with a fake before shooting. Allen stretched to his right to block the Penguins captain’s shot in flight with his stick.

In his third start in front of the Devils cage since his acquisition from the Montreal Canadiens, Allen signs a second victory in his new uniform. He made 36 saves in front of the New Jersey net, which halted a series of two losses.

Allen has a .946 save percentage and has stopped 105 of 111 shots faced since New Jersey acquired him on March 8.

New Jersey has won three of eight games under interim coach Travis Green.

Pittsburgh has not beaten New Jersey (0-6-1) since February 24, 2022. The Penguins have lost nine of their last 12 meetings and 11 of their last 13 road games.

This victory allows the Devils to overtake the Penguins in the Metropolitan division, but both teams are currently outside the playoff picture.

With a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes, the Devils put the game out of reach of the Penguins with two goals in a span of 16 seconds midway through the third period.

Dawson Mercer and Timo Meier, who now has 21 goals, led the Devils’ attack with two goals each. Meier became the third Swiss-born player to have a sixth season of at least 20 goals. Nino Niederreiter is the leader with seven campaigns. Kevin Fiala, like Meier, also has six.

Timo Meier and Alexander Holtz have the others in victory. Tomas Nosek, Ondrej Palat, Jack and Luke Hughes had two assists each.

Marcus Pettersson and Bryan Rust responded for the Penguins.

In the defeat, goalkeeper Tristan Jarry made 33 saves.


Guentzel doesn’t slow down

Jake Guentzel had a goal and two assists to help the Carolina Hurricanes win 4-1 against the New York Islanders.

Guentzel has now collected a point in four of his five games with the Hurricanes and has two goals and eight points during this stretch. Carolina has only lost once since Guentzel was on the roster.

The situation is more complicated for Patrick Roy’s men, who have now suffered five defeats in a row, in the midst of the playoff race. New York is out of the playoff picture for now, three points behind the Detroit Red Wings for the last team spot drafted.

Tuesday night, Seth Jarvis also had a good game with two goals. Martin Necas scored the other goal for the Hurricanes.

Pyotr Kochetkov did well in front of the Carolina cage and stopped 30 of the 31 shots aimed at him. Only Kyle Palmieri hit the target for the Islanders.

The Hurricanes quickly took control of the game, taking a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Palmieri reduced the gap in the third period, but Guentzel confirmed Carolina’s victory with an empty-net goal.


The Flyers didn’t need Sean Couturier

Owen Tippett scored just 19 seconds into the game, along with an assist, and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3.

Morgan Frost also finished the game with a goal and an assist.

Travis Sanheim and Scott Laughton scored the other goals for the Flyers, who were playing without their captain, Sean Couturier, who was left out for the first time in 13 career seasons.

Samuel Ersson made 27 saves in the victory.

Trailing by three goals to start the third period, the Maple Leafs attempted to mount a comeback. William Nylander scored on the power play, then Tyler Bertuzzi made it 3-2.

Laughton gave the Flyers a two-goal lead with seven minutes left in regulation.

John Tavares also found the back of the net in the loss and Ilya Samsonov blocked 24 shots.


McCarron shines in landslide victory

Michael McCarron scored a double and the Nashville Predators collected at least a point in their 15th straight game by defeating the San Jose Sharks 8-2.

The Tennessee team tied its longest streak in its history. She is 13-0-2 during this one.

Roman Josi and Filip Forsberg each had a goal and two assists for the Predators. Jason Zucker, Luke Evangelista, Mark Jankowski and Tommy Novak also made the red light shine. Kiefer Sherwood and Ryan McDonagh both had three goals.

Juuse Saros stopped 18 pucks.

Mario Ferraro and Mikael Granlund responded for the Sharks, who have won just one of their last 15 games. Magnus Chrona made 32 saves.


Kane does things quickly in overtime

Patrick Kane scored 48 seconds into overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kane scored from the left circle after teammate Lucas Raymond tied the game with just 12.6 seconds remaining in the third period.

Raymond scored twice and scored seven goals in his last five games. His 24 goals this season are a personal high for him.

Moritz Seider was the other scorer for the Red Wings, who had lost eight of their previous nine games. James Reimer made 32 saves.

Zach Werenski had a goal and two assists for the Blue Jackets. Kirill Marchenko and Alexandre Texier also threaded the needle. Daniil Tarasov stopped 23 pucks.

The Blue Jackets, who began a five-game road trip, suffered a fifth loss in six games.
