Wings stop Bruins' run

RECOMMENDED READING


DETROIT — Gustav Nyquist broke a tie with 7:12 left in the third period and the Red Wings ended the Bruins' nine-game road winning streak with a 3-2 win Wednesday night. Nyquist scored 1:42 after teammate Tomas Jurco tied the score.

The league-leading Bruins' winning streak was a franchise record. Boston, which had earned at least a point in its previous 16 games, was without leading goal-scorer Jarome Iginla (30), who sat out with a lower-body injury. The injury isn't major and Iginla is day to day, coach Claude Julien said.

The victory gave the Red Wings a little breathing room in their quest to make the playoffs for a 23rd straight season. They own the first of the two wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference and extended their lead over the No. 2 Blue Jackets to three points and the No. 4 Maple Leafs to four.

St. Louis finally scores: After not scoring for 14 games since being traded from the Lightning to the Rangers, Marty St. Louis got a goal in a 3-1 win over the host Canucks late Tuesday. St. Louis took a pass from Rick Nash on a two-on-one shorthanded break and beat Eddie Lack from the right circle in the third. St. Louis said he was relieved: "Fifteen games is as long a drought that I've had in a while. … It's a big momentum swing."

Around the league: Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews will miss the rest of the regular season with an injury suffered Sunday on a hit by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. Toews left the ice holding his left arm. Chicago wants to make sure he is 100 percent for the playoffs, which begin April 16, coach Joel Quenneville said. … Capitals coach Adam Oates said captain Alex Ovechkin quit on a play that led to the Stars' fourth goal in a 5-0 Dallas win on Tuesday. A nonchalant Ovechkin allowed Alex Chiasson to get past him and set up a goal by Dustin Jeffrey. Ovechkin leads the league with 48 goals but is last in plus-minus at minus-36. … Wild goalie Josh Harding, who has been adjusting to treatments for his multiple sclerosis, practiced for the first time since mid January.
