Mark Stone scored in regulation and again in overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night in the first of two regular-season games in the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

Swedish defenseman Fredrik Claesson and Christopher DiDomenico also scored for the Senators.

Nail Yakupov, Alexander Kerfoot and Nathan MacKinnon scored for Colorado.

Stone scored 59 seconds into overtime for his 11th of the season. MacKinnon tied it for Colorado with 7:07 remaining in regulation.

The teams will complete the NHL Global Series in Stockholm on Saturday night. It’s for the fifth time the NHL has played regular-season games in Europe, but the first since 2011.

The capacity crowd of 13,000 spectators at Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe cheered loudly for both teams, each led by Swedish captains – Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog and Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson.

Capitals 4, Penguins 1: In Washington, John Carlson and T.J. Oshie scored rare home power-play goals, and Braden Holtby became the second-fastest goalie in NHL history to 200 victories in Washington’s win over Pittsburgh.

Holtby stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced to pick up victory No. 200 in his 319th game, second only to Hall of Famer and six-time Stanley Cup winner Ken Dryden, who did it in 311. The only goal he allowed was credited to Phil Kessel, but went in off Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov.

Chandler Stephenson and Jakub Vrana also scored for Washington.

Panthers 4, Sabres 1: In Buffalo, New York, Roberto Luongo broke a tie with Curtis Joseph for fourth place on the NHL career victory list with 455, making 24 saves in Florida’s win over Buffalo.

Evgenii Dadonov and Aleksander Barkov each had a goal and an assist, and Ian McCoshen and Vincent Trocheck also scored to help the Panthers snap a five-game skid.

Kyle Okposo scored for the Sabres, and Robin Lehner stopped 27 shots.

Maple Leafs 3, Bruins 2 (OT): In Toronto, Patrick Marleau scored in overtime to give Toronto a victory over Boston Bruins in the first game of a home-and-home series.

James van Riemsdyk scored twice, the second to tie it with a minute left in regulation, and Frederik Andersen made 33 saves. The Maple Leafs have won three in a row to improve to 11-7-0.

Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak scored for Boston, and Anton Khudobin stopped 30 shots.

Boston will host the back end of the two-game set Saturday night.

Stars 5, Islanders 0: In Dallas, Ben Bishop made 14 saves in his 20th career shutout and Dallas beat New York.

John Klingberg had a goal and two assists for Dallas, and fellow defenseman Esa Lindell added a goal and an assist. Klingberg leads NHL defensemen with 18 points.

It was Bishop’s first shutout of the season. He got some help 3 1/2 minutes into the second period when Tyler Seguin swept the puck away from the net to prevent an Islanders goal.

Hurricanes 3, Blue Jackets 1: In Columbus, Ohio, Jordan Staal had two goals, Cam Ward made 25 saves and Carolina beat Columbus.

Staal snapped a 1-1 tie 8:54 into the third period when he beat Sergei Bobrovsky from the slot.

Teuvo Teravainen assisted on each of Staal’s goals, and Brock McGinn got an empty-net goal with 25 seconds left. Brandon Dubinsky scored for Columbus, and Bobrovsky stopped 26 shots.
