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. Jordan Spieth wins British Open (w/ video)


    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    Lightning Strikes

    WESLEY CHAPEL — As a 17-year-old Triple-A hockey player, MacCallum Brown regularly plays against elite talent. As a Palm Harbor resident, he often has to travel to face that talent.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

  5. Rays claim not to be panicking after third straight brutal loss to Rangers (w/ video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
