Patrice Bergeron scored the only shootout goal and the streaking Boston Bruins improved their playoff chances in their home finale with a 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Boston and Pittsburgh hold the two Eastern Conference wild-card spots with 95 points each, but the Penguins have played one less game. The Bruins have three games remaining.
The first three shots of the shootout missed.
Bergeron skated in slowly, held the puck, and got goalie James Reimer to drop to the ice before lifting it over his left pad. Boston goalie Tuukka Rask followed by stopping Nazem Kadri.
Senators 4, Capitals 3 - Kyle Turris scored on a breakaway at 3 minutes, 14 seconds into overtime to lift host Ottawa over Washington.
Turris stripped the puck away inside his own blue line before racing down the ice and beating Braden Holtby through his legs.
Clark MacArthur, Mark Stone, and Mika Zibanejad had first-period goals for the Senators, who remain in contention for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Ottawa is three points back for the final wild-card spot.
Blue Jackets 5, Penguins 3 - Nick Foligno scored three times and host Columbus beat Pittsburgh to set a franchise record with its ninth consecutive win.
It was Foligno's first hat trick in his 541st career NHL game.
Matt Calvert and Scott Hartnell also scored, Brandon Dubinsky assisted on all three of Foligno's goals, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 33 saves as the Blue Jackets won for the 11th time in 13 games.
Rangers 6, Devils 1 - Rick Nash scored his career-best 42d goal, Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves, and New York moved closer to securing home-ice advantage for the playoffs with a victory over New Jersey at Madison Square Garden.
Keith Yandle and Dominic Moore scored 25 seconds apart to cap a big three-goal first period, Derek Stepan added a shorthanded goal in the second and Derick Brassard and Moore tallied in the third.
It was the Rangers' third straight win. They're tied with Anaheim for the most points in the league with 107.
Islanders 3, Sabres 0 - Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and New York earned the win over visiting Buffalo.
Halak improved to 37-16-3 this season, and he has the franchise's single-season win record.
Kyle Okposo, Brock Nelson, and Nikolay Kulemin scored for New York. Kulemin's goal came in his 500th game.
