NEW YORK -- Brian Leetch scored a power-play goal with 8:17 remaining, and Mike Dunham made 17 saves to lift for New York. Garth Snow made 38 saves, but couldn't stop Leetch's backhanded shot after the Rangers pressured, and Islanders failed to clear the puck three times. Dunham has four shutouts this season and 15 career.
Canucks 4, Stars 2
DALLAS -- Todd Bertuzzi scored two of his three goals on the power play, and Pat Kavanagh got the first of his NHL career as Vancouver beat Dallas.

Oilers 5, Predators 3
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Ales Hemsky had a goal and an assist and Ryan Smyth had three assists for Edmonton. The Oilers opened up a two-goal lead in the first period then scored the final two goals of the games in the last five minutes. Nashville's Denis Arkhipov scored his second goal of the game to tie the score at 3 just under six minutes into the third period. Jason Chimera then scored the decisive goal for Edmonton when he took a pass from the left circle by Shawn Horcoff, drove into the slot and put the puck past Tomas Vokoun's outstretched leg with 4:53 left.
Blackhawks 3, Sharks 2, OT
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Theo Fleury scored a breakaway goal with 3:34 remaining in overtime. Fleury, who also had an assist in the first period, broke in alone on Sharks goalie Vesa Toskala, beating him to the stick side for the 11th goal of the diminutive forward's disappointing season.
