Martin Brodeur moved within two wins of tying Patrick Roy's NHL career record when he made 35 saves in the New Jersey Devils' 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.
Jamie Langenbrunner, Brian Rolston and Zach Parise scored and the Devils killed off six of seven power plays in helping Brodeur post victory No. 549. New Jersey tied the franchise record with its eighth straight home victory.
Calgary newcomer Olli Jokinen's third goal in four games could not prevent the Flames from losing their third straight game. Curtis Glencross scored with less than a second to play for the final goal. It came on the Flames' final power play.
Canadiens 4, Oilers 3, OT: At Montreal, Saku Koivu scored twice, including a power-play goal 1:40 into overtime, as Montreal celebrated Bob Gainey's return to coaching with a win over Edmonton.
Koivu deflected Mathieu Schneider's point shot past Dwayne Roloson for the winner after he tied it with 4:35 left in regulation on a goal that required a lengthy video review. Referee David Banfield, who ultimately confirmed the goal, pointed to the net repeatedly when the puck deflected up off Oilers defenseman Steve Staios' stick on Andrei Kostitsyn's centering pass and caromed in past Roloson off Koivu, who was driving hard to the net.
