Late Gionta goal sinks Red Wings

Stephen Gionta scored with 37 seconds left to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Gionta broke the tie as time ticked down, adding to earlier New Jersey goals from Adam Henrique, Marek Zidlicky, and Travis Zajac.

David Krejci's helped the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

Jarome Iginia got the other goal for Boston, who peppered Tim Thomas' goal with 39 shots, giving food for thought to veteran goaltender Roberto Luongo, acquired from Vancouver earlier in the day.

Columbus raced into a 3-0 first period lead as Boone Jenner, R.J. Umberger and Anisimov found the net.

The Colorado Avalanche have won three in a row after beating the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2, moving to 40 wins faster than ever before in franchise history.
