Zetterberg seals Red Wings win, Devils beat Kings
Henrik Zetterberg was the hero for the Detroit Red Wings as they defeated the Boston Bruins 6-5 in an NHL goal-fest.
The game got off to a nightmare start for the Red Wings as Brad Marchand scored his 28th goal of the season for the Bruins after just eight seconds.
Zetterberg scored his first at two minutes, 44 seconds of the first period but Boston replied emphatically to take a 3-1 lead through Zach Trotman and Loui Eriksson, with Pavel Datsyuk scoring his 10th of the season to pull it back to 3-2 before the first intermission.
The Red Wings took the lead in an emphatic second period as Darren Helm scored either side of Datsyuk's second to move 5-4 up ahead of the third period, only for Boston's Joonas Kemppainen to level the scores 38 seconds into the final period.
But Zetterberg's second of the match sealed the win for the Red Wings.
David Schlemko scored a first-period winner as the New Jersey Devils accounted for the Los Angeles Kings 1-0.
Backup Devils goaltender Keith Kinkaid made 28 saves to complete the shutout.
Patrik Berglund's third-period goal proved the winner as the St. Louis Blues defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1.
Two third-period goals from Derek Stepan secured a 3-1 win for the New York Rangers against the Philadelphia Flyers, while the Buffalo Sabres cruised to victory in a 4-1 triumph over the Colorado Avalanche.
