     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A quick start, two rookies contributing and some scoring opportunities while on the penalty kill helped the Minnesota Wild recover from a dreary loss at home.
 
     Eric Staal had a goal and assist, Luke Kunin and Zack Mitchell each scored their first NHL goals, and Minnesota beat the New York Islanders 6-4 on Thursday night.
 
     Marcus Foligno, Jason Zucker and Jonas Brodin also scored for Minnesota. Devan Dubnyk stopped 29 shots to win for the second time in six starts this season for the Wild, who lost 1-0 at home on Tuesday against Vancouver, their fifth loss in regulation or overtime through seven games in a season filled with high expectations.
 
     Anthony Beauvillier, Nick Leddy, Anders Lee and Mathew Barzal scored for New York, which had won three in a row. Thomas Greiss finished with 27 saves.
 
     Staal scored short-handed to cap a three-goal first-period burst for Minnesota in 7:26. He later assisted on Kunin's tally as the rookie became the first player in Wild history to score short-handed for his first NHL goal, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
 
     New York entered the game with the league's worst power play at 7.1 percent this season and had allowed three short-handed goals in its first nine games. The Islanders were 0 for 5 on the power play against the Wild, in addition to allowing two more short-handed goals.
 
     Minnesota overwhelmed the Islanders from the outset.
 
     The Wild were outshooting the Islanders 10-0 at the start of the game and 13-1 after Staal earned a breakaway for a short-handed marker. Kunin's tally came in the second as Staal broke free on a 2-on-1. The veteran center sent a cross-ice pass to Kunin, who snapped a quick shot past Greiss.
 
      Mitchell, who was recalled from Iowa of the AHL earlier in the day, earned his first goal in the third when he pushed a rebound back towards Greiss, who appeared to kick the puck in the net. Greiss has allowed 17 goals on 166 shots in five games this season.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have named Garvin Alston pitching coach. The 45-year-old Alston became bullpen coach for the Oakland Athletics last season after starting the year as the San Diego Padres' pitching rehab coordinator.
 
     He previously served as bullpen coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks and as minor league pitching coordinator and minor league rehab pitching coordinator in two earlier stints with the A's. Alston pitched in the Rockies, Royals and Dodgers systems and made six major league appearances with Colorado in 1996.
 
     The Twin announced Alston's hiring today. He replaces Neil Allen, who was let go after three seasons. The Twins' team ERA of 4.59 ranked 19th in baseball this season.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns coach Hue Jackson could use a win on his team's trip to London to face the Minnesota Vikings. Jackson is 0-7 this season and 1-22 since taking over in Cleveland. He'll be without two of his top players on Sunday as Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas suffered a season-ending injury last week and rookie standout Myles Garrett has a concussion.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BALTIMORE (AP) - Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass before being knocked from the game with a concussion, and the Baltimore Ravens frustrated quarterback Matt Moore and the Miami Dolphins in a 40-0 victory Thursday night.
 
     Alex Collins ran for a career-high 113 yards, and Baltimore (4-4) returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the most lopsided shutout in franchise history.
 
     In the midst of one of his best performances of the season, Flacco was struck in the helmet by Miami linebacker Kiko Alonso while sliding at the end of an impromptu run. Flacco's helmet flew off his head, and the 10-year quarterback appeared dazed as he struggled to his feet.
 
     The play occurred with 3 minutes left in the second quarter. Alonso was flagged for unnecessary roughness, providing Baltimore with a first down that ultimately turned into a touchdown.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Keller Chryst threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to JJ Arcega-Whiteside with 20 seconds left and No. 20 Stanford survived Bryce Love's absence for a 15-14 come-from-behind victory over Oregon State.
 
     Love, the nation's leader with an average of 198.1 yards rushing per game, tweaked an ankle against Oregon on Oct. 14. The Cardinal (6-2, 5-1 Pac-12) announced that Love would sit out about 90 minutes before the start of the game in Corvallis.
 
     Stanford went for it on fourth-and-10 on the Oregon State 40 with 2:19 left in the game and Chryst hit Kaden Smith with a 25-yard pass to keep the drive alive. After Chryst found Arcega-Whiteside in the end zone, the 2-point conversion failed but Stanford intercepted Oregon State quarterback Darell Garretson's hurl with 3 seconds left to end it.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Lauri Markkanen scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half, including a key 3-pointer with 48.5 seconds left, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Atlanta Hawks 91-86 for their first win of the season. Markkanen also grabbed 12 rebounds, leading a dominant rebounding effort for Chicago. Robin Lopez had 16 points and eight rebounds and reserve David Nwaba finished with 15 points and 11 boards, helping the Bulls to a whopping 62-40 advantage on the glass.
 
     Other NBA finals:
 
     - Marc Gasol had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Mike Conley added 22 points and the Memphis Grizzlies held on for a 96-91 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Memphis held a 20-point lead in the third quarter. The Mavericks cut into the lead behind Wesley Matthews, who finished with 18 points and made four 3-pointers in the period.
 
     - Al Horford had 27 points and nine rebounds, and the Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 96-89. Kyrie Irving added 24 points and seven assists for Boston. The game was played at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena, formerly known as the MECCA, which served as the Bucks' home from 1968 until the team moved into the Bradley Center in 1988.
 
     - DeMarcus Cousins immediately scored after winning the opening tip and never stopped on the way to 41 points and 23 rebounds, and the emotional big man dominated his old team to rally the New Orleans Pelicans past the Sacramento Kings 114-106. Cousins took the crowd at Golden 1 Center on a trip down memory lane, then left them with some heartache after a spectacular performance.
 
     - Blake Griffin made a 3-pointer as time expired and the Los Angeles Clippers remained unbeaten with a 104-103 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Griffin scored 16 of his 25 points during the fourth quarter. DeAndre Jordan had seven points and 18 rebounds for Los Angeles, which at 4-0 is one of two unbeaten teams remaining in the NBA. All five Portland starters scored in double figures
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Pavel Buchnevich scored twice and added an assist, rookie Boo Nieves had three assists and the New York Rangers beat the winless Arizona Coyotes 5-2 Thursday night.
 
     Michael Grabner had two goals, Chris Kreider also scored and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 27 shots to help the Rangers get just their third victory of the season in the finale of a season-high six-game homestand.
 
     New York shook up its line combinations and played with a traditional lineup consisting of 12 forwards and six defensemen for the first time in a week. It helped the Rangers beat Arizona for the eighth straight time, dating back to March 24, 2014.
 
     In other NHL finals:
 
     - Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov became the seventh set of teammates in NHL history to start the season with point streaks of at least 11 games, and the surging Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Thursday night. Kucherov got his 12th goal in the first period, and setup Stamkos' power-play goal from the low left circle that put Tampa Bay up 2-1 at 6:22 of the third. Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy made 29 saves.
 
     - Danton Heinen scored both goals and Anton Khudobin made 36 saves to lift the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. Joe Thornton scored for San Jose, which went 0 for 6 on the power play. The Sharks had one in the final two minutes after Brandon Carlo went off for slashing and got three shots while creating havoc in front of Khudobin but couldn't capitalize.
 
     - Radim Vrbata recorded his seventh career hat trick to lift the Florida Panthers over the Anaheim Ducks 8-3.  Evegenii Dadanov scored two goals and Vincent Trocheck and Aleksander Barkov each had a goal and two assists for the Panthers while Owen Tippett, the youngest player in the NHL at 18, scored his first career goal. Kalle Kossila scored his first NHL goal for Anaheim and Andrew Cogliano and Logan Shaw also scored.
 
     - Phil Kessel's 300th career goal at 1:07 of overtime lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Kessel, who also scored the overtime winner against Edmonton on Tuesday, became the 18th American-born player to reach 300 career goals and the second active behind Minnesota's Zach Parise. Conor Sheary scored his fifth for the Penguins, who won for the fifth time in six games. Pittsburgh has won seven of nine since losing the first two games.

     - Jean-Gabriel Pageau had a goal and two assists, Erik Karlsson added two assists and the Ottawa Senators beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-4. The Flyers appeared to score midway through the third period but after a coach's challenge the goal was reversed due to goaltender interference.
 
     - Jonathan Quick stopped 40 shots for his 46th career shutout, Adrian Kempe and Tyler Toffoli scored 11 seconds apart in the first period and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-0. Anze Kopitar and Kurtis MacDermid also scored for the Western Conference-leading Kings, who beat the Canadiens 5-2 last week in Los Angeles.
 
     - Matt Benning scored the tiebreaking goal with 2:27 remaining and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had two goals as the Edmonton Oilers finally found their offensive touch in a 5-4 victory over the Dallas Stars.
