DETROIT — Henrik Zetterberg scored three goals in the third period to cap an impressive Detroit comeback, lifting the Red Wings to a 6-4 victory over Buffalo on Sunday night – the Sabres’ 11th consecutive loss.

It was the sixth career hat trick for the Detroit captain, and it came after the Red Wings wiped out an early three-goal deficit against the struggling Sabres. Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek was replaced after allowing three goals on seven shots, but Buffalo barely put any pressure on the Red Wings after that.

Jets 4, Coyotes 3: Bryan Little scored the only goal of the shootout after also scoring in regulation, and host Winnipeg beat Arizona for its fourth straight win.

Michael Frolik and Dustin Byfuglien added a goal apiece for the Jets (25-14-8), who wasted a late two-goal lead. Winnipeg has earned points in its last six games dating to Jan. 10 against the Los Angeles Kings.

Lauri Koripikoski and Tobias Rieder scored for the Coyotes (16-24-5) to force overtime.

Stars 6, Blackhawks 3: Cody Eakin, Erik Cole and Shawn Horcoff scored in the third period to lead visiting Dallas to a victory over slumping Chicago.

Eakin also had a short-handed goal in the first period as Dallas won for the third time in four games. Dallas earned its first victory of the season against the Blackhawks after dropping the first three meetings.

Rangers 5, Penguins 2: Rick Nash scored twice to lift his goal total to an NHL-high 28 and New York drummed host Pittsburgh.

Derek Stepan also scored twice for the surging Rangers and Derick Brassard had a goal and two assists for New York.


RANGERS: New York and defenseman Marc Staal have agreed on a contract extension, keeping Staal off the free agent market this summer.
