    Anaheim moved back into a tie for the NHL Eastern Conference lead by shutting out Toronto 4-0 with Corey Perry scoring a hat trick.

    Anaheim goaltender Frederik Andersen made 28 saves while Kyle Palmieri also scored for the Ducks, who had lost their previous six against the Maple Leafs.

    The Ducks moved level with Nashville on points atop the league standings, but have played two games more.

    Elsewhere, Washington goalie Braden Holtby's iron-man run produced another shutout as he made 21 saves in his 20th consecutive start, helping the Capitals beat Philadelphia 1-0.

    Montreal's Max Pacioretty scored two power-play goals, and PK Subban added another - all in a span of 3:53 of the third period - to lead the Canadiens to a comeback 3-2 victory at Columbus.

    New Jersey's 68-second goal rush came in the second period to set up a 5-3 win at Los Angeles, with Steve Bernier netting his first two power-play goals of the season.
