CAPITALS 7, MAPLE LEAFS 1: Alexander Ovechkin scored his seventh and eighth goals of the season and five Washington players got their first in the Capitals' victory against Toronto.

Brian Sutherby, Matt Bradley, Jeff Schultz, Matt Pettinger and Boyd Gordon all scored their first goals of the season for the Capitals while center Michael Nylander had three assists.

SHARKS 4, STARS 2: Devin Setoguchi scored two goals in the third period of his first NHL game to help San Jose rally past Dallas.

Setoguchi tied the game at 2 when he beat Dallas goalie Marty Turco midway through the third period. Two minutes, 34 seconds later, he took a pass in front of the net from Joe Thornton, who had two assists, and put the Sharks ahead 3-2 at 14:27.

Flames' Kiprusoff Gets 6-Year Extension

Miikka Kiprusoff agreed to a $35 million, six-year extension with the Flames that will keep the star goalie in Calgary through the 2013-14 season.

The 2006 Vezina Trophy winner, who would have been an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, was the last of a core of key players, along with captain Jarome Iginla and defenseman Robyn Regehr, to recently agree to long-term deals.

The 31-year-old Finn is in the final year of a deal that will pay him $3.6 million this season. The new deal will put him in a league with Vancouver's Robert Luongo ($6.5 million this season) and New Jersey's Martin Brodeur ($5.2 million).

FLYERS: Defenseman Randy Jones was suspended two games by the NHL for his violent hit on Boston's Patrice Bergeron during Saturday's game. Bergeron was injured after he was hammered to the boards face-first by Jones in the first period.

BONDRA RETIRES: NHL veteran and Slovakian star Peter Bondra retired to become general manager of his country's national team. Bondra, 39, played last season for the Chicago Blackhawks before becoming a free agent. He had 503 goals and had 389 assists in 1,081 NHL games.
