Recchi makes Bruins winners in OT

at Panthers 1 1 1 1 4
Avalanche 0 2 1 0 3
BOSTON — Mark Recchi tipped Dennis Seidenberg's slap shot past Ryan Miller in overtime, a power-play goal that was initially waved off by the referee, and the Bruins escaped with a 3-2 victory over the Sabres on Tuesday night.

The game continued until the next whistle, with 1:58 left, but the goal 2:11 into the period officially ended it.

Luke Adam netted his first NHL goal for Buffalo, but he also raked his stick across Marc Savard's face to give Boston the overtime power play.

Game highlights: Stephen Weiss scored his second goal of the game 43 seconds into overtime to give the host Panthers a 4-3 victory over the Avalanche. … Former Lightning players Jeff Halpern and Roman Hamrlik joined Brian Gionta in scoring third-period goals and the host Canadiens beat the Senators 4-1 for their third straight win.

Board of governors: Two days of meetings that ended in Palm Beach were routine, commissioner Gary Bettman said. Among the topics discussed were televisions rights. The league's deals with cable partner Versus and national network partner NBC expire after this season. Bettman said the league is in a 90-day exclusive negotiation period with Versus through the end of January, and then it will have an exclusive negotiation period with NBC.

All-Star voting: The Penguins' Kris Letang jumped from fourth to first among defensemen in the third week of voting, compiling 210,807 votes, all write-ins. Letang's total is second among all players to teammate Sidney Crosby, who remained the leader for the Jan. 30 game with 319,809 votes. Still second and third to Crosby at forward are the Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews (196,792) and the Lightning's Steven Stamkos (191,265). The Canadiens' Carey Price remained the top goalie with 209,025 votes, all write-ins.

The three forwards, two defensemen and goalie with the most votes will be named All-Stars. The league's Hockey Operations Department will select the remaining 36 players for the game. All the players will select two captains for each team; the captains will draft their teams from the remaining players.

Voting can be done at, through the league's Facebook page and by texting a player's last name to 81812. Voting ends Jan. 3.

Blackhawks: Second-leading scorer Patrick Kane is out up to three weeks with a leg injury sustained Sunday against the Flames when he hit the boards trying to avoid a check.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
