Boston • Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary scored second-period goals, reserve goaltender Jonas Gustavsson made 28 saves in his first action of the season and the Detroit Red Wings edged the Boston Bruins 3-2 Monday.

Henrik Zetterberg had the other score for Detroit (4-2), which won its second straight game.

Loui Eriksson and Milan Lucic had Boston's goals. The Bruins had a two-man, power-play advantage for nearly 2 minutes early in the third period, but couldn't mount a comeback.

Gustavsson, playing in place of No. 1 goaltender Jimmy Howard, bobbled a few shots in the opening period, but improved as the game went on. He made a pair of stops on Jarome Iginla's shots from the left point when the Bruins had the two-man edge for 1:54 early in the third period.

Tuukka Rask made 24 saves for Boston (3-2).

Capitals 4, Oilers 2 • Joel Ward, Alex Ovechkin and Troy Brouwer scored goals in less than four minutes of the second period, and host Washington snapped a three-game losing streak with a win over Edmonton.

Wild 2, Sabres 1 • Jason Pominville scored the winning goal in his return to Buffalo as Minnesota beat the winless Sabres. Kyle Brodziak also scored for Minnesota (3-1-2). Josh Harding made 21 saves.

Pominville, a former Sabres captain, played his first game in Buffalo since he was traded to Minnesota last April.

Buffalo (0-6-1) tied a franchise record for longest winless streak to start a season.
