NEW YORK — Vincent Trocheck scored two power-play goals in the third period, then completed the hat trick with an empty-netter as the visiting Florida Panthers beat the Edmonton Oilers 7-5 on Monday night.

Panthers goalie James Reimer made 27 saves in his return to action after missing six games due to a groin injury. Florida's Evgenii Dadonov scored twice, his second on a third-period penalty shot that ended up being the game-winner, while Aaron Ekblad and Denis Malgin added singles.

Ekblad, Malgin, Jonathan Huberdeau, Michael Matheson and Keith Yandle had two-point nights for the visitors. Patrick Maroon and Connor McDavid collected one goal and one assist apiece for Edmonton, while Leon Draisaitl, also on a penalty shot, Anton Slepyshev and Drake Caggiula scored.

Maple Leafs 4, Lightning 3

James van Riemsdyk broke a tie game with the game-winning goal in the third period as Toronto won its fifth straight at home, beating Tampa Bay.

William Nylander collected two goals and an assist, and Jake Gardiner had a goal and an assist for Toronto. The win was the Maple Leafs' eighth in nine games and fourth straight. Auston Matthews had three assists for the Maple Leafs.

Alex Killorn and Nikita Kucherov each notched a goal and an assist for Tampa Bay. Yanni Gourde had the Lightning's other goal.

Coyotes 6, Blackhawks 1

Max Domi, Clayton Keller, Alex Goligoski and Tobias Rieder each notched a goal and an assist while Antti Raanta made 37 saves as Arizona cruised to a home win over Chicago.

It was just the 14th victory in 56 games for Arizona, which has a league-low 38 points. However, the Coyotes led 2-0 before the first period was half-over and answered Chicago's only goal with four unanswered markers to enjoy a rare two-point evening.

The Blackhawks fell to 0-5-1 in a six-game losing streak, their longest skid in six years. — Reuters
