EDMONTON, Alberta -- David Perron had a career-high four points with two goals and two assists and the Edmonton Oilers routed the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-0 on Tuesday.
Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk only needed 14 saves to record his first shutout of the season.
Jordan Eberle, Ryan Smyth, Nail Yakupov, Taylor Hall and Justin Schultz also scored for the Oilers, who improved to just 2-7-0 at home this season (see full recap).
Rask, Bruins squeak past Rangers
NEW YORK -- Tuukka Rask had his busiest game of the season, just how he likes it.
Rask, playing on a second straight night, stopped all but one of the season-high 44 shots the Boston Bruins allowed and lifted his club to a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday.
Rask gave up just a rare power-play goal to Derick Brassard in the second period, but made the offense provided by Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille stand up as the Bruins earned their sixth win in seven games (see full recap).
Kessel, Clarkson lead Leafs over Islanders
TORONTO -- Phil Kessel and David Clarkson ended their slumps for the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Clarkson scored his first goal as a Maple Leaf and Toronto beat the New York Islanders 5-2 for its second win in a row.
The 29-year-old signed with the Maple Leafs as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and was unable to score in his first 11 games with the team (see full recap).
Avalanche top Blackhawks to halt skid
DENVER -- Semyon Varlamov stopped 36 shots, Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night.
Gabriel Landeskog and John Mitchell also scored during Colorado's three-goal first period. P.A. Parenteau and Cody McLeod added goals in the second and third for Colorado, which snapped a three-game skid.
Brandon Saad scored for the Blackhawks, who failed to get at least two goals for the first time this season. Colorado ended Chicago's NHL-record streak of 24 consecutive games with at least a point to start a season in a 6-2 win last March (see full recap).
