Jeff Carter celebrates his winning goal with Anze Kopitar
Jeff Carter spared the blushes of the Los Angeles Kings as they snatched a 4-3 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators.
The Kings had looked to be on course for a convincing win following goals from Carter and Dustin Brown (2).
However Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Bobby Ryan moved the Senators back into contention before Milan Michalek's strike sent the game into the extra period.
Carter, though, deflected Mike Richards' shot home 28 seconds into overtime to settle the tie.
Alexander Steen's late slap shot settled a 3-2 victory for St Louis Blues over Chicago Blackhawks.
David Backes and Vladimir Tarasenko grabbed Blues' other goals while Chicago's Patrick Kane scored for the third straight game before Jonathan Toews levelled the scores.
With 21 seconds remaining, however, Steen drove home from just inside the circle.
Sean Monahan scored one goal and set up another as Calgary Flames beat Montreal Canadiens 3-2.
The 18-year-old forward opened the scoring with Sven Baertschi and Curtin Glencross contributing Calgary's other goals. PK Subban and Lars Ellar netted for the Canadiens.
