                    Final Score: Pittsburgh 3, Boston 2 (OT)
 
 Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Evgeni Malkin scored 32 seconds into overtime
 to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday.
 Malkin  skated to the top of the right circle and one-timed a feed from Sidney
 Crosby through the pads of Tuukka Rask for his second goal of the game. Crosby
 had  the other  Pittsburgh goal  and finished  with two  assists, while  Marc-
 Andre  Fleury  earned his 300th  career win  with a 27-save performance. Milan
 Lucic  and  Joe Morrow  scored  28  seconds apart  in  the  second period  for
 Boston. Rask stopped 30 shots in defeat.
 
 
                Final Score: NY Islanders 1, Philadelphia 0 (SO)
 
 Uniondale,  NY (SportsNetwork.com) -  Frans Nielsen's shootout goal lifted the
 New York Islanders to a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in a goaltenders'
 duel on Monday. Philly's  Steve Mason  made  a  season-high  46 saves  through
 regulation  and  overtime, while Jaroslav  Halak stopped 21 shots. Nielsen put
 the  first puck  past  either goaltender  with New  York's  second chance,  as
 he  buried  a wrister  past Mason. Claude  Giroux then beat  Halak back to the
 forehand  and his low shot appeared to have an open path to the net, but Halak
 slammed  the glove  arm down  and kept  it out.  Jonathan Tavares  then sealed
 the  victory  as he  went back  and forth  before lifting  a backhand into the
 right  corner of  the net. Both goaltenders  were given a shutout in the game,
 as  Mason  notched his first of  the year and  24th of his career, while Halak
 nabbed his third of the season and 33rd of his career.
