Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, shooting in the second period, had two goals and an assist against the Bruins.

DETROIT — The way both teams were scoring, Pavel Datsyuk couldn't help reaching this milestone.

Needing one point to hit 900 in his career, Datsyuk had two goals and an assist Sunday to lead the Red Wings to a 6-5 victory over the Bruins. Henrik Zetterberg and Darren Helm also scored twice each for Detroit in a game that felt like a throwback to a more high-scoring era. "It looked like 1986," Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said.

Both teams squandered two-goal leads before Danny DeKeyser's shot from the point deflected past goalie Jonas Gustavsson at 7:37 of the third. Zetterberg was credited with the goal.

Brad Marchand set a Bruins record for fastest goal by scoring 8 seconds into the gameFleming Mackell had a goal 9 seconds into a game in 1953.

Game highlights: Keith Kinkaid had 28 saves for his first NHL shutout in leading the Devils past the visiting Kings 1-0. David Schlemko scored the lone goal.

Around the league: The Blackhawks put Marian Hossa on injured reserve and recalled center Vincent Hinostroza from AHL Rockford. Hossa was hurt Saturday on a hit by Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm on his lower left leg.

  1. Ryan Callahan encouraged by his return


    Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't the only key Lightning player to make a triumphant return Friday night against Nashville.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

  3. Lightning's Steven Stamkos looks close to top form in first game since November

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb may have pitched last game in Rays uniform (w/video)

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.
