Blue Jackets 4, Red Wings 1

Cam Atkinson and Sam Gagner had a goal and an assist each to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Brandon Dubinsky also scored, Lukas Sedlak picked up his first NHL goal and Gagner added an empty-net goal for Columbus, which won its fifth straight. Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves.

Rangers 1, Blackhawks 0

Nick Holden scored with 4:05 remaining in overtime to lift New York over Chicago. Antti Raanta stopped all 26 shots he faced to earn his first shutout of the season and the fifth of his career.

The abrupt ending spoiled a terrific performance by Blackhawks goaltender Scott Darling, who turned aside the first 36 shots he faced before allowing Holden's game-winner.

Wild 3, Oilers 2 (shootout)

Jason Pominville, Chris Stewart and Eric Staal scored in a six-round shootout as Minnesota extended its winning streak to three, beating Edmonton.

Jason Zucker and Matt Dumba scored in regulation for the Wild, who got 25 saves from Devan Dubnyk in their first home game since Black Friday.

Capitals 4, Sabres 1

Philipp Grubauer made 26 saves and four different players score a goal to lead Washington over Buffalo. T.J. Oshie, Jakub Vrana, John Carlson and Marcus Johansson scored the Capitals.

Ducks 3, Sharks 2

Hampus Lindholm scored his first goal of the season with 5:38 left in the game as Anaheim beat San Jose at Honda Center to move back atop the Pacific Division standings.
