Last-minute goal helps Red Wings sail past Rangers

REUTERS , NEW YORK

Dan Cleary’s goal with just over two minutes remaining snapped a tie that led the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Cleary scored with two minutes, three seconds left in regulation as the puck hit veteran Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist’s right pad and left skate before sliding over the goal line.

New York, who led 1-0 on Brian Boyle’s first period goal before Detroit scored the next three, lost for the fourth time in five games.

■SENATORS VS DUCKS

AP, NEW YORK

At Anaheim, California, Ottawa Senators gave up one-goal leads three times against the Anaheim Ducks — each time in less than a minute — before Alex Kovalev and Daniel Alfredsson scored in the first two rounds of a shootout, snapping the Senators’ four-game losing streak.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a fluke goal for Anaheim 15 seconds after Jarkko Ruutu got one, Joffrey Lupul tied it again 31 seconds after Jason Spezza regained the lead for the Senators, and Corey Perry completed the Ducks’ unusual “hat trick” early in the third period after Filip Kuba’s go-ahead score.

CARCILLO SUSPENDED

AFP, PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

Philadelphia Flyers left wing Dan Carcillo was suspended for four games on Sunday by the National Hockey League for a fight that brought him 19 minutes in penalties and an ejection.

The 24-year-old Canadian received the punishments after his game misconduct on Saturday night in the Flyers’ 8-2 home loss to the Washington Capitals.

Carcillo landed a solid punch on Washington’s Matt Bradley, while the Capital was in the process of dropping his gloves. Bradley fell to the ice and departed the game.
