Rangers 4, Hurricanes 2
Center Derek Stepan scored on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:46 remaining as the New York Rangers rallied for a win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes appeared in good shape with a 2-1 lead after center Jeff Skinner scored on a penalty shot with 7:53 to play, before New York scored three times in the last seven minutes.
Red Wings 7, Devils 4
Right winger Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a win over the New Jersey Devils.
The Red Wings led 5-3 after a wild second period in which seven goals were scored.
New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider stopped 25 shots but also allowed seven goals for the first time in his career.
Panthers 2, Sabres 0
Goalie Roberto Luongo, playing his first game with Florida since 2006, led the Panthers to a home victory over the Buffalo Sabres.
The Panthers also got power-play goals from center Jesse Winchester and defenseman Dmitry Kulikov in a battle of the two bottom teams in the Eastern Conference.
Luongo was traded to the Panthers this week from the Vancouver Canucks.
