NHL roundup: After shot to head from Malkin, Oshie lifts Caps over Pens


Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby traded goals, and Oshie got the winner with 1:14 left following a dangerous hit from Malkin.


The Penguins star was thrown out of the game for an illegal check to the head and could get a hearing with the NHL's department of player safety.


Getzlaf then was able to corral a loose puck in front of the goal and directed a backhand through Mike Smith's legs for his second game-winner of the season.


DENVER (AP) — Colton Sissons got his second career hat trick and Colorado had two apparent goals nullified on replay review as Nashville beat the Avalanche.


Trailing 2-0, the Avalanche had an apparent goal at 1:29 of the second period waived off after a replay review showed the puck had drifted across the blue line, making it offside.


Samuel Girard was straddling the blue line when he passed to Ian Cole, whose shot zoomed into the net past goalie Pekka Rinne only to have it erased after the Predators' challenge was upheld.
