[January 09, 2017]  Jan 8 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of National Hockey League games on Sunday:

Blue Jackets 2, Flyers 1

It would take late game heroics from Philadelphia's Brayden Schenn to send Sunday's game into overtime, but he couldn't beat the overtime performance of Nick Foligno, who provided the game-winner in the Columbus Blue Jackets' 2-1 win over the Flyers.

Foligno got the puck on his stick in the slot and fired one past Steve Mason with 2:27 remaining in overtime. It was his 14th goal of the season.

That came after Schenn, with the goaltender pulled for an extra skater with 16.5 to play in regulation, tapped the puck around Sergei Bobrovsky's left side for his 12th of the season.

Penguins 6, Lightning 2

Pittsburgh shook off the rust from its bye week, scoring four goals in a row en route to a dominating win over Tampa Bay at PPG Paints Arena.

Conor Sheary, Eric Fehr, Chris Kunitz, Scott Wilson, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang scored for the penguins, who won their fifth straight.

Hurricanes 4, Bruins 3

Sebastian Aho's second goal of the game came with 3:26 remaining in overtime to give Carolina a victory against Boston at PNC Arena.

Derek Allen and Jay McClement also scored for the Hurricanes, who have points in 12 of their last 13 home games. Aho, a rookie, has 10 goals. Cam Ward made 32 saves.

Senators 5, Oilers 3

Tom Pyatt's second-period goal stood as the winner, and Ottawa snapped a four-game winless drought by defeating Edmonton at Canadian Tire Centre.

Blackhawks 5, Predators 2

Ryan Hartman recorded his first career hat trick with three goals in the third period, including a pair of empty-net goals, and Chicago from Nashville.

Artemi Panarin and Niklas Hjalmarsson also scored for the Blackhawks. Patrick Kane finished with three assists as the Blackhawks won their third game in a row.

Wild 2, Ducks 1

Minnesota used two second-period goals to beat Anaheim at Honda Center.

Matt Dumba and Jared Spurgeon scored less than two minutes apart in the middle frame to account for the scoring and Devan Dubnyk stopped 23 shots for the Wild, who out-shot the Ducks, 36-24.

Ryan Kesler scored the Ducks lone goal.
