Red Wings beat red-hot Bruins

– Gustav Nyquist broke a tie with 7:12 left in the third period, and Detroit held on to beat Boston 3-2.

Nyquist scored 1:42 after teammate Tomas Jurco tied the game. Jimmy Howard finished with 33 saves to seal the win.

The NHL-leading and Atlantic Division-champion Bruins had won a franchise-record nine straight on the road and had earned at least a point in their previous 16 games. Boston led the Red Wings twice, but couldn’t put away the young, scrappy and short-handed team.

Detroit’s Tomas Tatar scored early in the second period to tie the game the Bruins were basically dominating. Tatar used his left skate to push the puck across the front of the crease to set up Jurco’s goal.

Nyquist didn’t need much help on his game winner.

The Bruins turned the puck over near Detroit’s blue line, and Nyquist got to it. He raced up ice, skated around defenseman Zdeno Chara and ended his blurring sequence with a goal in his third straight game, extending his point streak to 10 games.

ISLANDERS 2, SENATORS 1: In Ottawa, Ontario, Josh Bailey had a goal and an assist for the second straight night as New York earned back-to-back victories.

Bailey, playing in his 400th NHL game, scored a power-play goal in the first period, and assisted on Casey Cizikas’ winning goal midway through the third. Bailey outwaited goalie Craig Anderson and slid the puck into the crease from behind the goal line to Cizikas.

Ryan Strome had two assists, and rookie Anders Nilsson followed up Evgeni Nabokov’s home victory against Florida on Tuesday by making 35 saves.

The Islanders have won three in a row and five of six.

Milan Michalek’s power-play tally 6:41 into the third period was the lone goal for the Senators, who had won three straight.
