PITTSBURGH -- Jason Allison had a goal and two assists on Los Angeles' newly formed top line and the Kings remained successful on the road, winning 5-4 Wednesday night to run Pittsburgh's winless streak to eight games.

Allison and new linemates Adam Deadmarsh and Ziggy Palffy combined for six points after getting 10 the night before in a 5-1 victory at Columbus.

Deadmarsh had a goal and an assist, Palffy had one assist.

The Kings are 15-4-1-1 in their last 21 games and 8-1-0-1 in their last 10 road games.

Janne Laukkanen scored twice on goals set up by Mario Lemieux, but the Penguins remained winless (0-5-1-2) since beating Atlanta on Jan. 26.

Lemieux, playing in his first game since helping Canada win the Olympic gold medal, became the seventh NHL player with 1,600 points when he assisted on Laukkanen's first goal. He is fourth among active players with 1,601 points, trailing Mark Messier, former teammate Ron Francis and Steve Yzerman. Wayne Gretzky is the all-time leader with 2,857 points.

Red Wings 3, Panthers 2, OT

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Brett Hull's goal with 48.5 seconds left in overtime rallied Detroit to a victory over Florida.

Hull's late heroics foiled a franchise-record performance by Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, who stopped 57 of 60 shots.

Luc Robitaille's second power-play goal of the game forced overtime with 2:13 left in regulation.

Sandish Ozolinsh and Kristian Huselius scored for Florida.

Flyers 1, Devils 0

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Philadelphia's Simon Gagne spoiled goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck's return from retirement with a second-period goal in leading the Flyers to a win over New Jersey.

Roman Cechmanek made 22 saves in outdueling Vanbiesbrouck and helped the Flyers remain unbeaten (3-0-1) against the Devils this season.

Giving Martin Brodeur a rare night off, Vanbiesbrouck finished with 31 saves in his first game since deciding to come out of retirement on Feb. 4.

Vanbiesbrouck's last game was on Apr. 22, a 4-3 win over Chicago. He did not see any action in the playoffs and retired after New Jersey lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final.

Canadiens 3, Blackhawks 2

CHICAGO -- Stephane Quintal scored a power-play goal with 4:32 left as Montreal beat Chicago.

Montreal's Jeff Hackett stopped 27 shots to post his first win since Oct. 13 and help the Canadiens snap a three-game losing streak. Hackett made his first start since Jan. 21.

Chad Kilger and Jan Bulis also scored for the Canadiens, who scored more than two goals for the first time in six games.

Chicago's Michael Nylander tied the game at 2 with 7:02 left, erasing the Blackhawks' early 2-0 deficit.

Boris Mironov also scored for Chicago, which lost only its fifth home game.
