In the second contest of their six-game road swing, the Flyers took a 3-2 win in Winnipeg over the Jets on Tuesday night (see story).

Here is a recap of other NHL action from Tuesday:

Rangers blow lead, recover
BOSTON -- Twice already in this young and lockout-shortened season the New York Rangers have blown multigoal leads to Boston.

Twice they have been lucky to come away with a win.

Ryan Callahan scored on the fourth shootout attempt and the Rangers recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat the Bruins 4-3.

"We have to learn from it," Callahan said. "But at the same time we showed some character in not giving up and not folding the tent in overtime." (See full recap.)

Caps rally in Florida
SUNRISE, Fla. -- Troy Brouwer scored 32 seconds into overtime for the Washington Capitals, who rallied from a late two-goal deficit and beat the Florida Panthers 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Washington trailed 5-3 before Eric Fehr scored on a redirect at 14:53 of the third period. Alex Ovechkin then scored a power-play goal with 2:49 left to tie it.

Florida rookie Jonathan Huberdeau had his first multigoal game, and Drew Shore scored his first NHL goal. Tomas Fleischmann and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, and Scott Clemmensen made 23 saves.

Mike Ribeiro, Karl Alzner and Matt Hendricks also scored for the Capitals. Braden Holtby, who shut out Florida 5-0 on Saturday stopped 27 shots. (See full recap.)

Devils' win streak ends
NEWARK, N.J. -- Jiri Tlusty and the Carolina Hurricanes concluded a grueling six-game road trip with a satisfying win over the Eastern Conference leading New Jersey Devils.

Tlusty scored two goals in the third period and Cam Ward made 26 saves as the Hurricanes beat the Devils 4-2 on Tuesday night, snapping New Jersey's five-game winning streak.

The Hurricanes had every reason to be dead on their skates, playing on consecutive nights. Somehow they found the energy to keep the game close, and Tlusty once again worked his third period magic.

"It was a huge trip, the longest trip of the year," Ward said. "We're all excited now to go home, winning two games against two tough opponents back-to-back. This is a tough building to play in. We were fortunate to get the two late goals." (See full recap.)
