Datsyuk hits 900 in wild Wings win

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.
