Dominik Hasek only had to stop 16 shots to earn his 70th career shutout and lift the Detroit Red Wings past the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 in the NHL on Wednesday.

It was the seventh consecutive win for Detroit, which got goals from Dan Cleary, Henrik Zetterberg, and Jiri Hudler, and two assists from Chris Chelios.

Dwayne Roloson stopped 42 shots for Edmonton.

Thrashers 5, Senators 4

At Atlanta, Slava Kozlov's hat trick helped Atlanta hand Ottawa its first five-game losing streak in 10 years.

Once again, the Senators couldn't hold a lead as goalie Martin Gerber continued to struggle as he fell to 2-1-6 while stopping only 26 of 31 shots. The Senators blew 3-1 and 4-2 advantages. It was the third straight game that Ottawa blew a lead.

Brad Larsen and Ilya Kovalchuk also scored goals for the Thrashers.

Jason Spezza, Daniel Alfredson, Chris Kelly and Antoine Vermette scored for Ottawa.

Rangers 4, Panthers 3, SO

At Sunrise, Florida, Michael Nylander scored the only goal in the shootout to lead New York over Florida.

Martin Straka added two power-play goals for the Rangers, who improved to 6-2 on the road this season. Blair Betts had the other New York goal.

Henrik Lundqvist, returning in net for the Rangers after being replaced by Kevin Weekes for the last three games, made 37 saves before the shootout.

Ruslan Salei, Nathan Horton and Jay Bouwmeester scored for the Panthers, who trailed 2-0 midway through the second period.

But the Panthers were stymied in the shootout by Lundqvist. He stopped Olli Jokinen, Horton and clinched the victory when he blocked Joe Nieuwendyk's backhand attempt on a deke.

Lightning 4, Penguins 3, OT

At Pittsburgh, Vincent LeCavalier's goal 2:41 into overtime gave Tampa Bay a win over Pittsburgh.

Nils Ekman had a natural hat trick, scoring three straight goals late in the second period for Pittsburgh. The Penguins have gained at least a point in seven of their last eight games.

LeCavalier had a breakaway on Marc-Andre Fleury after Martin St. Louis found him with a long pass from the Tampa Bay end to near the Pittsburgh blue line.

It was the second assist of the game for St. Louis, who has a 10-game point streak.

Dimitry Afanasenkov, Brad Richards, and Eric Perrin scored for Tampa Bay.
