COLUMBUS, Ohio — Patric Hornqvist scored the tying goal with 3 seconds left in regulation and had the game winner in a shootout as the Florida Panthers beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 on Tuesday night. Hornqvist beat Joonas Korpisalo in the fifth round of the shootout to end it after Columbus' Mikhail Grigorenko's try went into the pads of Panthers' stopper Sergei Bobrovsky. Hornqvist, the veteran who joined the Panthers in the off-season, had tapped in the tiebreaker from the doorstep late during a 6-on-5 scramble after the Panthers had played from behind for most of the third period. Carter Verhaeghe and Aleksander Barkov also scored in regulation, and Bobrovsky, the former Blue Jacket, stopped 19 shots for Florida. The Panthers stayed unbeaten in their third game of the season after having two series cancelled because of COVID-19 issues with the other teams. Kevin Stenlund, Alexandre Texier and Cam Atkinson scored, and Joonas Korpisalo — formerly Bobrovsky's backup — had 28 saves. The Panthers won for just the second time in their last 11 games against Columbus. They hadn’t won at Nationwide Arena since 2007. The Blue Jackets weren't sharp offensively in the first two periods, but scored on their first two shots on goal. They had just one more shot in the entire first period, and six in the second but managed to stay in the game and go ahead early in the third. NEW FACES IN COLUMBUS A blockbuster trade for Columbus last weekend sent unhappy Pierre Luc-Dubois to Winnipeg for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic. Laine is still trying to get visa issues worked out, and Roslovic is taking more time to get into game shape. He could be in the lineup Thursday. Koivu, a centre who signed a one-year contract with Columbus after 15 seasons with the Minnesota Wild, played for the first time after coming off the COVID list. He missed a shot in the shootout. SQUEEZE THEM IN Because of COVID postponements of series against Dallas and Carolina, the Panthers will have to squeeze in 53 games in the next 101 days. UP NEXT The teams play again Thursday night at Nationwide Arena. The Blue Jackets play five of the next seven games at home. The Panthers have three more on the road before heading back to South Florida. ___ Follow Mitch Stacy on Twitter at https://twitter.com/mitchstacy ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Mitch Stacy, The Associated Press

BOSTON — Craig Smith scored with 11 seconds left in overtime, and the Boston Bruins recovered after blowing a two-goal lead to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night. Brad Marchand had a short-handed goal and assisted on Nick Ritchie's goal to help the Bruins earn their third straight victory. Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots, giving up both Pittsburgh goals after he injured himself midway through the third period. The Penguins rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third, with Jason Zucker making it 2-1 midway through the period and Kasperi Kapanen tying it with 3:16 to go. They had two exceptional chances to win it in overtime, but Evgeni Malkin's breakaway early in the extra period went over Rask's shoulder and off the crossbar; they had a 3-on-0 with about a minute left but didn't get a shot off. Instead, Smith converted on a give-and-go with David Krejci in front of the net. Tristan Jarry stopped 33 shots for Pittsburgh, which had won four straight since starting the season 0-2. The Bruins took the lead in the first period when Charlie McAvoy swiped the puck in his own end and shot it ahead to Marchand, who was breaking toward the Pittsburgh blue line. The Boston forward got to the faceoff circle, made a move toward the middle and then wristed the puck under Jarry's glove to make it 1-0. Ritchie made it 2-0 on a 5-on-3 advantage in the second period, redirecting a crossing pass from Marchand into the net. The Penguins cut it to a one-goal lead when Rask injured himself going into a spread to make a save midway through the third period. He struggled to get back up, and left his stick on the ice when he did; Zucker fired one past the unarmed goalie to make it 2-1.

ATLANTA — Trae Young scored 38 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat the depleted Los Angeles Clippers 108-99 on Tuesday night, ending the Clippers’ seven-game winning streak. The Clippers were without three starters. Leading scorers Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were ruled out due to health and safety protocols. Guard Patrick Beverley missed the game with right knee soreness. Reggie Jackson led the Clippers with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. Serge Ibaka had 15 points. De’Andre Hunter had 22 points for Atlanta. Clint Capela collected 13 points and 19 rebounds. Kevin Huerter gave the Hawks a fourth-quarter push by scoring each of his 13 points in the final quarter. Huerter sank consecutive 3-pointers after Los Angeles pulled even at 79-all, giving Atlanta the lead for good. Three free throws by Young gave the Hawks a 95-85 lead. Jackson’s three-point play trimmed the advantage to 101-96, but Huerter answered with his third 3-pointer of the period. Young scored 14 points in the third period. Teams are not allowed to reveal if players in the health and safety protocol have tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing and inconclusive test results also could place players in the protocol. Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said before the game Leonard and George “are feeling well.” Leonard is averaging 25.9 points and George is right behind at 23.9, leaving a significant scoring void. “Our guys are up for the challenge,” Lue said. “No excuses. ... Hopefully they can get back and join the team soon.” The Clippers’ new lineup struggled early on with perimeter shooting. Los Angeles made only two of its first 11 3-point shots. Ibaka had 13 first-half points to help the Clippers to a 48-43 lead at the break. TIP-INS Clippers: Lue said he was eager to see his backups have an opportunity to make a bigger contribution. G Terance Mann made his first start of the season after making eight starts in his 2019-20 rookie season. Jackson made his second start and Luke Kennard made his third start. “They’ve been preparing,” Lue said. “They work on their game every day ... make sure they’re getting better in their craft.” Hawks: Young (back spasms) and Capela (sore right hand) returned after missing one game. F Cam Reddish (right Achilles tightness) was held out. ... The team wore its new City Edition MLK jerseys for the second time, honouring Atlanta native Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy. ... John Collins had 11 points with 11 rebounds and set a career high by blocking five shots. WELCOME BACK Approximately 1,300 Hawks season-ticket holders attended the game, less than 10% capacity of State Farm Arena. It was the Hawks’ first move toward a gradual return of fans. Tarps continued to cover seats on the side of the arena behind the teams. UP NEXT Clippers: Six-game road trip continues on Thursday at Miami. Hawks: Remain home to play New Jersey Nets on Wednesday. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Charles Odum, The Associated Press
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo captain Jack Eichel’s first goal of the season gave him some relief and provided a lift for the Sabres. Eichel, Dylan Cozens and Tobias Rieder scored for Buffalo, which rallied for a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night. Chris Kreider and K'Andre Miller scored first-period goals for the Rangers. Eichel's power-play goal snapped a 2-all tie and gave Buffalo the lead at 7:31 of the second period. He buried a shot from the slot off a pass from below the goal line by Victor Olofsson. Eichel raised both his arms and his head to the sky before pounding the glass in celebration. The goal was his first since March 9, 2020, Buffalo’s final game of the 2019-2020 season. Buffalo's win came after the Sabres faced a 2-1 deficit after the first period. Kreider gave New York a 1-0 lead 6:48 into the game with a shot past Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark off a pass from Pavel Buchnevich. Buchnevich took advantage of a turnover by defenceman Colin Miller. Cozens' power-play goal at 12:50 of the second tied it. His slot shot whistled off the post and past Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev, who finished with 22 saves. Miller gave New York a 2-1 lead with seven seconds left the first period when he ripped a slap shot past Ullmark. Miller, playing in his sixth career game, spent his previous two seasons at the University of Wisconsin. Rieder’s second goal of the season at 6:03 of the second period came two seconds after the Sabres killed off a minor for too many men on the ice. Rieder received a pass from defenceman Matt Irwin and streaked up the right wing before he crossed in front of a fully extended Georgiev and beat him to the far post. Irwin’s assist came in his first game with the Sabres after he signed as a free agent in the off-season. After Eichel made it 3-2, the Sabres hunkered down in the third as the Rangers built a 15-2 edge in shots and spent the final 1:37 killing a 6-on-4 Rangers power play with Georgiev pulled for an extra skater following a boarding minor against forward Taylor Hall. Ullmark finished with 28 saves. The Rangers and Sabres faced each other as divisional opponents for the first time since March 24, 1974, when both were part of the East Division. CHYTIL HURTING Rangers 21-year-old forward Filip Chytil will miss the next 4 to 6 weeks with an upper-body injury. Chytil, in his fourth season with New York, sustained the injury in a collision with Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evan Rodrigues. Chytil has two goals this season, tying him for the Rangers' lead with four others (Kreider, Buchnevich, Artemi Panarin, and Kaapo Kakko). MILESTONE Sabres defenceman Rasmus Ristolainen played in his 500th game, all with Buffalo. ROSTER MOVES The Sabres recalled forward Dylan Cozens and returned forward Casey Mittelstadt to the taxi squad ahead of Tuesday’s game. Buffalo sent goalie Jonas Johansson to the taxi squad on Monday. Carter Hutton backed up Linus Ullmark after missing the last two games following a collision with Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Ivan Provorov on Jan. 20.
