Red Wings fly better than Maple Leafs

Posted: Thursday, March 07, 2002

DETROIT -- Sergei Fedorov scored twice and the Detroit Red Wings had three power-play goals in a 6-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.

Detroit, which has the NHL's best record at 45-11-6-2 (98 points), won its seventh consecutive game.

Oilers 3, Lightning 2

TAMPA, Fla. -- Ethan Moreau had a tiebreaking short-handed goal 2:56 into the third period. Moreau scored from the right circle off a pass from Rem Murray during a 2-on-1.

Steve Staios and Todd Marchant had the other Edmonton goals.

Mighty Ducks 4, Thrashers 1

ATLANTA -- Paul Kariya scored two goals as Anaheim dominated Atlanta, outshooting the Thrashers 15-1 in the opening period. Atlanta's only shot was a weak back-hander from Per Svartvadet with 1:54 left that drew a derisive cheer from the crowd.

Dany Heatley scored on a goalmouth scramble with 6:48 left to spoil Steve Shields' bid for his first shutout in more than a year.

Capitals 3, Flames 2

WASHINGTON -- Sergei Gonchar scored with 2:04 remaining in regulation. Gonchar tied a career high with his 21st goal by using Ulf Dahlen as a screen in front of goaltender Roman Turek and scoring on a slap shot from the right point.

Peter Bondra scored twice for the Capitals, who had lost two of three games.

Jarome Iginla had his league-leading 40th goal and an assist for the Flames, who had a three-game winning streak halted.

Canadiens 5, Bruins 3

MONTREAL -- Joe Juneau scored goals 35 seconds apart just 53 seconds into the game. Juneau, who had a goal and two assists in a 5-3 win over Atlanta on Monday, also set up a goal and has six points in his last two games.

Richard Zednik scored his 16th goal with 2:23 left in regulation to seal the win after Benoit Hogue had drawn the Bruins -- who outshot Montreal 41-16 in the game -- within one.

Montreal's Jeff Hackett stopped 36 shots, including all of 18 in the second period, before he was injured on a goalmouth scramble and had to leave 8:30 into the third. He was replaced by Jose Theodore.

Stars 3, Kings 2, OT

DALLAS -- Brenden Morrow scored with 1:07 left in overtime as the Dallas Stars beat Los Angeles 3-2 Wednesday night to tie the Kings for second place in the Pacific Division.

Morrow's shot from the middle of the left circle bounded off the pads of goalie Felix Potvin, who had 28 saves before that.

With 71 points each, the Stars and Kings are three points behind San Jose. Dallas beat the division-leading Sharks 4-1 on Sunday.

Avalanche 4, Blue Jackets 1

DENVER -- Steven Reinprecht had a goal and two assists and backup goalie David Aebischer stopped 32 shots as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 Wednesday night.

As they've done so frequently this season, the Avalanche started slow, getting just three shots in the first period. But they came on strong in the second with three goals.

Reinprecht put the Avs up 2-1 in the second period when he slipped the puck between Ron Tugnutt's legs on Chris Drury's pass from the right side. It was the first of Colorado's seven goals since the Olympic break that didn't involve Joe Sakic.
