Devils win in OT to end skid
Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias each had three assists and combined to set up the game-winner for New Jersey, which blew a two-goal third-period lead.
Michael Ryder, Mark Fayne, and Jaromir Jagr also scored for New Jersey, which played with a lot more energy with its playoff hopes fading.
Red Wings 5, Penguins 4 - Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game with 1 second left in overtime to give Detroit a victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.
Detroit was up, 2-0; trailed, 3-2; and led, 4-3, with 7:43 left. Craig Adams pulled Pittsburgh back into a tie two minutes later.
The banged-up Red Wings are desperately trying to close the season well enough to extend their postseason streak to 23 seasons.
Ranger out of hospital
Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger was released from a Toronto hospital after being examined Wednesday night.
The team said Thursday that Ranger was sent home. His head struck the glass on a hit from the Tampa Bay Lightning's Alex Killorn, and he remained on the ice for seven minutes before he was taken off on a stretcher.
