Martin Brodeur scored his third career goal and made 17 saves in his first game in a month as the New Jersey Devils downed the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Thursday.
Brodeur had been out since Feb. 21 with a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck. Peter Harrold, Adam Henrique and Andrei Loktionov also scored to help the Devils snap a three-game losing streak.
Jeff Skinner had the Hurricanes' lone goal while Dan Ellis made 19 saves in Carolina's fifth consecutive loss.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, Brodeur is the first goalie to score a power-play goal since Evgeni Nabokov for San Jose in 2002.
Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney scored 4:22 apart in the third period for Dallas, lifting the Stars over the Los Angeles Kings for their fourth straight win at Staples Center.
The 41-year-old Jagr and 40-year-old Whitney scored in the same game for the second time this season. On Jan. 19 against Phoenix, they became the fourth pair of teammates age 40 or older to score in the same game since 1942-43.
At New York, Jacob Markstrom made 44 saves and just missed his first NHL shutout to help the Florida Panthers get a 3-1 win against the playoff-hopeful Dallas Rangers.
The Rangers had gotten back into eighth place in the Eastern Conference with wins on consecutive nights this week after a three-game skid. But Markstrom was sharp and shut down offensively challenged New York.
Brian Campbell scored in the first period, and Scottie Upshall made it 2-0 in the second against Henrik Lundqvist, who faced 23 shots.
The Boston Bruins earned a late 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators after Dennis Seidenberg scored with 1:04 left.
Daniel Paille also scored for the Bruins and Anton Khudobin made 27 saves. The Bruins pulled within three points of Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh.
Kaspars Daugavins scored for Ottawa.
Vancouver's Jordan Schroeder scored midway through the third period and Cory Schneider stopped 33 shots as the Canucks grinded out a 2-1 win at the Arizona Coyotes.
Schneider allowed a tying goal to Antoine Vermette in the third period, but Schroeder put the Canucks back up by punching in a rebound after a redirect by Jannik Hansen trickled past Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera.
Christopher Tanev also scored.
Braden Holtby made 20 saves at Winnipeg, Manitoba, for his fourth shutout of the season and Alexander Ovechkin had a goal and two assists in the Washington Capitals' 4-0 victory over the Jets.
Nicklas Backstrom added a goal and an assist for Washington, while Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson also scored.
In other games, the Montreal Canadiens downed the New York Islanders 5-2, the Buffalo Sabres defeated Toronto Maples Leafs 5-4 in a shootout, and the Nashville Predators were 5-3 winners over the Calgary Flames.
