    Goalie Jonas Hiller captured his 14th consecutive victory and guided the streaking Anaheim Ducks to a 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

    The Ducks (35-8-5) extended their unbeaten run in regulation at home to 19-0-2. They also swept the two-game series from the Red Wings (20-16-10).

    Anaheim remains the NHL's hottest club, winning its seventh in a row and 17 of its last 18 games.

    Right winger Marian Hossa celebrated his 35th birthday with a goal and assist as the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a three-game losing streak to beat the Oliers 5-3.

    Chicago (30-8-10) started rookie Antti Raanta in place of goaltender Corey Crawford, who has lost all four of his starts since returning from missing nearly a month due to a lower-body injury.

    Goal-tender Darcy Kuemper (2-1-0) notched his first NHL shutout and third career win as Minnesota topped Nashville 4-0.

    Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves to help the New York Rangers rout the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1.

    Buffalo centre Cody Hodgson returned to the lineup and made quite an impact as he drew a penalty that negated a late goal by the Washington Capitals, then scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the Sabres 2-1.

    The New York Islanders scored three times in the final 4:16 of the game to defeat the Dallas Stars 4-2.
