Masahiro Tanaka knew the English words to answer a question about the last time he'd been this anxious before a big game. ''Japan Series,'' Tanaka said, referring to last season's championship in which he saved the clinching seventh game. Nerves were an issue for Tanaka in the early innings of his major league debut for the New York Yankees, but the right-hander soon settled into his new surroundings. Tanaka pitched seven innings, Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and the Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-3 on Friday night.

Cammalleri scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and the Flames beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 Friday night. Cammalleri has scored the game winning goal in six of the Flames' last seven victories. Jiri Hudler brought the puck from behind the net and passed across to Cammalleri in front.

Ben Smith had the closest look and he likened it to mayhem. Antti Raanta had the worst view on the ice and to him it was a thing of beauty. Smith tapped in a rebound with 3.7 seconds left on a wild scrum to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night. With time running out, Duncan Keith threw the puck on net and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky blocked it with his arm but it popped out of his reach.

The Montreal Canadiens couldn't help but feel a sense of payback. The Canadiens had been seeking to get even with the Senators since last spring when Ottawa eliminated them in the opening round of the playoffs. Montreal got a small measure of that Friday night as they defeated the Senators 7-4, making Ottawa's chance at returning to the postseason more difficult. The Senators remained seven points out of the final wild-card berth in the East with just five games remaining.

The Houston Rockets are heading to the playoffs for the second straight year and believe wins like the one they picked up Friday night will help them when they get there. James Harden scored 39 points and the Rockets ended a three-game skid and clinched a playoff berth with a 111-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder ''It was a great win for us ... just to give ourselves confidence, especially going into the playoffs,'' Harden said. It shows the resilience we have.'' Kevin Durant scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for his 40th straight game with at least 25 points, the longest streak since Michael Jordan also did it 40 consecutive times in 1986-87. We lost.'' The normally mild-mannered Durant, who leads the NBA with 32.1 points a game, talked a little trash afterward when asked if he was frustrated by the physical defense Houston's Chandler Parsons and Francisco Garcia played on him.
