Bruins 2, Canadiens 1
MONTREAL (AP) — Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.
The victory moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead.
P.K. Subban scored his first of the season on a second period power play for Montreal, whose five-game home winning streak ended. Boston outshot Montreal 23-22.
Ducks 3, Avs 0
DENVER (AP) — Viktor Fasth stopped 31 shots for his first NHL shutout and Francois Beauchemin (FRAHN'-swah BOH'-shee-mihn) scored in his 500th career game in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.
Sheldon Souray and Saku Koivu each added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who won their fourth straight game.
Fasth stymied the struggling Avalanche with one sprawling save after another to help Anaheim start a six-game road swing on a good note. The 30-year-old Swedish goaltender has been quite a find for the Ducks since he signed as a free agent over the offseason. He's yet to allow more than two goals in any of his four starts.
Stars 3, Oilers 2, OT
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Jaromir Jagr (YAH'-roh-meer YAH'-gur) scored the game-winner at 3:54 of overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 3-2 win over host Edmonton.
It was Jagr's 17th career overtime goal. Jagr leads all NHL players in that category.
Dallas improved to 5-5-1. Edmonton fell to 4-3-3 but picked up a point to creep within one point of Northwest Division-leading Vancouver.
