Bruins' Iginla delivers OT win

DETROIT — Jarome Iginla scored at 13:24 of overtime to give the Bruins a 3-2 win over the Red Wings on Thursday night and a three-games-to-one lead in their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

In goal for Detroit was Jonas Gustavsson, who started for the first time this postseason because Jimmy Howard had the flu. He made 37 saves.

Detroit led 2-0 4:27 into the second period after Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall each had a goal and an assist. Both missed practice Wednesday because they were about to become fathers. Datsyuk's wife had a girl Wednesday; Kronwall's girlfriend had a boy Thursday.

Boston's comeback was the ninth time this postseason a team erased two-goal deficit to win, a record for the first round. "We just needed to remain calm and work for that first goal," Iginla said. "We were able to do that and fight our way back into the game."

Also in the lineup for Detroit was forward Henrik Zetterberg, who played for the first time since having back surgery Feb. 21.

Wild-Avalanche: Minnesota left wing Matt Cooke apologized for the knee-to-knee hit on Colorado defenseman Tyson Barrie that sidelined Barrie for at least a month with a torn MCL, saying he did not intend to injure him. Cooke got a seven-game suspension Wednesday that removes him from the remainder of this West first-round series, which the Wild tied at two games each with a 2-1 win Thursday.

Blackhawks-Blues: Patrick Kane's fourth career playoff overtime goal gave host Chicago a 4-3 win over the Blues that evened their West series at two games each late Wednesday. It was the second goal of the game for Kane, who also had an assist and said it was the best he had felt since the Blues' Brenden Morrow fell on his left knee March 19, knocking him out for the final 12 games of the regular season.
