Brett Hull moved into third place on the NHL career goal list by scoring 1:51 into overtime Monday night of the Detroit Red Wings' 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Hull's 732nd goal snapped a tie with Marcel Dionne and moved the Red Wings forward behind only Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801). Hull scored for the seventh straight game and added an assist.

Brendan Shanahan and Pavel Datsyuk had the other Detroit goals. Shanahan's goal was his 544th, tying him for 19th place with Hall of Famer Maurice Richard.

Los Angeles rallied from a 2-0 third-period deficit on goals by Mike Cammalleri and Martin Straka to force overtime.

Flyers 3, Canadiens 2

In Montreal, Magnus Ragnarsson and John LeClair scored 2:06 apart late in the third period to lift Philadelphia over Montreal.

Ragnarsson scored his third of the season with 3:19 left to tie it at 2, and LeClair netted the winner at 18:47.

Kim Johnsson also scored for the Flyers, who have lost just once in 17 games (13-1-3).

The Canadiens ended a season-high five-game unbeaten streak (3-0-2).

Pierre Dagenais assisted on Richard Zednik's goal late in the second period, and scored his second of the season midway through the third to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead.
