Red Wings surge past Isles

NEW YORK — Justin Abdelkader and Danny DeKeyser scored 1:11 apart in the second period Monday night to lead the Red Wings to a 4-2 victory over the Islanders.

Brad Richards scored in the first period and Petr Mrazek stopped 27 shots to give the Red Wings their second win in five games (2-2-1). Luke Glendenning added an empty-netter in the final minute.

Brock Nelson and Mikhail Grabovski scored for New York, and Jaroslav Halak had 22 saves while the Islanders lost in regulation for the first time in five games (3-1-1). Both teams played for the last time before Sunday's All-Star Game in Nashville.

With both Boston (which defeated Philadelphia) and Detroit winning, the Lightning fell to fourth in the Atlantic Division, two points behind the second-place Red Wings and a point behind the Bruins.

Game highlights: Former Lightning wing Brett Connolly redirected Zdeno Chara's shot from the point with 1:54 left, lifting the visiting Bruins past the Flyers 3-2. … J.T. Miller scored after the Rangers squandered a two-goal third-period lead as New York came back to beat Buffalo 6-3 for its eighth straight win over the Sabres.

Around the league: The Ducks recalled defenseman Simon Despres, who missed 42 games with a concussion. Despres hasn't played since Oct. 16, when he was hurt on a shoulder-to-head hit from Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie, who was suspended three games. … The Panthers extended center Aleksander Barkov's contract for six seasons through 2022, according to a tweet by Barkov and owner Doug Cifu, the Sun Sentinel reported.
