The Maple Leafs appeared to tie the game less than two minutes later, but Nazem Kardri’s goal was waved off because he made a kicking motion to knock the puck in with the inside of his right skate.

The Red Wings seemed to seal the win with 2:33 left when Daniel Alfredsson’s wrist shot from the slot hit the back of the net. Toronto, though, pulled its goaltender to add an extra skater seconds later and James van Riemsdyk scored with 1:13 left.

FLYERS 3, BLACKHAWKS 2, OT

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Claude Giroux scored at 4:55 of overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Scott Hartnell scored twice and Ray Emery made 23 saves for Philadelphia.

Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith scored and Antti Raanta made 34 saves for Chicago.

Skating down the right wing, Giroux beat Raanta with a wrister to give Philadelphia its third straight win.

Flyers forward Vinny Lecavalier was involved in two chances that nearly broke the tie in the third. His breakaway attempt with 7:40 remaining was turned away by Raanta’s right pad, and Brayden Schenn’s almost-goal just over a minute later was waved off when referees ruled Lecavalier touched the puck with a high stick on its way to the net.

FLAMES 3, SABRES 1

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Mike Cammalleri’s 20th goal of the season midway through the third period helped the Calgary Flames defeat the Buffalo Sabres.
