Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + The Dallas Stars' medical staff acted quickly and decisively in treating forward Rich Peverley after he collapsed on the bench last week because of an irregular heartbeat. He will undergo a heart procedure and will sit out the rest of the season, but the medical personnel on duty at the American Airlines Center saved his life. + Kudos to New York Islanders forward John Tavares for reaching out to Jake Lotocki, an 11-year-old Winnipeg boy who was rudely heckled for wearing a Tavares jersey to a recent Jets game.

PITTSBURGH ? Mark Recchi scored the third of the Bruins' four goals in the final 3 1/2 minutes to cap their second frantic rally in two visits to Pittsburgh, and Boston beat the Sidney Crosby-less Penguins, 4-2, on Monday night. The comeback win, the second victory by Boston in six games, came after the Bruins squandered a 2-0 lead with 2 1/2 minutes left Saturday and lost 3-2 in overtime to Montreal. Gregory Campbell added an empty-netter and set up two goals during a rally similar to one when Boston trailed 4-2 in Pittsburgh on Nov. 10 before scoring five goals in the third to win 7-4. Pittsburgh is 0-2-1 without Crosby, who is out with a concussion.

Sidney Crosby netted the deciding tally in the shootout and gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-3 victory against the New York Islanders on Saturday night. Islanders rookie John Tavares got nearly everything he hoped for in his NHL debut, scoring a go-ahead goal and adding an assist. He went second for New York in the shootout but fired wide. Jeff Tambellini rang a shot off the post on the Islanders' first attempt before Penguins defenseman Kris Letang beat Dwayne Roloson in the tiebreaker.

Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury might not be able to explain his success in shootouts, but the numbers tell the story. Fleury made 31 saves and stopped three more tries in the shootout, and Kris Letang scored the only goal in the tiebreaker in the Penguins' 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. Pittsburgh improved to 6-0 in shootouts this season thanks in large part to Fleury, who has given up only one goal to 19 shooters. Sidney Crosby, who came in having connected on all five of his shootout attempts, was denied in the second round when Buffalo goalie Patrick Lalime closed his pads quickly enough to block the try. -- associated press
