TAMPA, Fla. -- Alexander Mogilny had two goals as the New Jersey Devils took over the Eastern Conference lead with a 7-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
The Devils, who hold a one-point advantage over Ottawa in the race for the conference's top spot, won for the 14th time in 15 games.
New Jersey, which had a franchise-record 13-game winning streak end in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday, set a team record with its seven consecutive road win.
Mogilny, who has four goals and nine points in four games against Tampa Bay this season, put the Devils up 4-1 with consecutive second-period goals.
Jason Arnott, Scott Niedermayer, Randy McKay, Bobby Holik and Petr Sykora also scored for the Devils.
Fredrik Modin scored for Tampa Bay, which has lost three straight.
Penguins 4, Sabres 1
PITTSBURGH -- Hans Jonsson and Robert Lang scored 12 seconds apart in the opening minute against Buffalo backup goaltender Martin Biron, and Pittsburgh went on to a victory.
Kevin Stevens scored his first goal in nine games and Jaromir Jagr got his first in five as the Penguins, coming off a 4-2 victory Sunday that ended New Jersey's 13-game winning streak, won consecutive games for the first time since March 8-10.
The Sabres, winners of six of seven, put only 19 shots on Penguins rookie goalie Johan Hedberg one night after beating Atlanta 4-0 in Dominik Hasek's 10th shutout of the season. Hedberg was working on his first NHL shutout in his only fifth career start until Dave Andreychuk scored on a power play at 3:13 of the third period.
Flames 3, Blue Jackets 0
CALGARY, Alberta -- Fred Brathwaite made 19 saves for his franchise record-tying fifth shutout of the season as Calgary beat Columbus.
Jarome Iginla, Chris Clark and Valeri Bure scored for Calgary, which won consecutive games for the first time since Feb. 9-10. The Flames also won in Chicago on Sunday.
Greg Gilbert improved to 3-4-1 since taking over as coach after Don Hay was fired March 13.
Brathwaite, who also had five shutouts last season, again matched the Flames' record for shutouts in a season, set by Dan Bouchard in 1973-74 and matched by Phil Myre in 1974-75.
Sharks 3, Kings 2, OT
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Mike Ricci scored his second goal of the game 1:53 into overtime to lead San Jose over Los Angeles.
