Capitals edge Canucks, 4-3

Mike Green netted the go-ahead goal in the third period, Alex Ovechkin also scored, and Evgeny Kuznetsov had three assists for his first NHL points in the host Washington Capitals' 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Washington led, 3-1, early in the third before Shawn Matthias and Nicklas Jensen scored for Vancouver to tie it.

Panthers 5, Devils 3 - Scottie Upshall scored the go-ahead goal, and host Florida beat New Jersey.

Roberto Luongo stopped 28 shots.

Flames 4, Stars 3 - Mike Cammalleri scored two goals, Corban Knight netted the winner in a shootout, and visiting Calgary erased a two-goal deficit in the third period to beat Dallas.

It was the Stars' first home game since forward Rich Peverley collapsed on their bench on Monday.

Peverley got a standing ovation when he was shown on the video board in the first period, four nights after he was revived by medical personnel during a game against Columbus that was postponed.

The 31-year-old Peverley, who was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in training camp, is out for the season. He will soon undergo a procedure designed to correct the condition.
