It was the third straight six-goal game for the Bruins, known more for their defense, following road wins of 6-1 and 6-3. The Atlantic Division leaders improved to 5-0-1 in their last six games.

Thomas won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 2011 when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. He spent one more season with them, took last season off and then joined the Panthers.

Zdeno Chara, Reilly Smith, Shawn Thornton and David Krejci also scored for Boston, which led 4-0 until Brad Boyes connected for Florida with 2:33 left in the second period. Dmitry Kulikov added a power-play goal for the Panthers 4 minutes into the third.

CAPITALS 5, SABRES 4, OT

BUFFALO, N.Y. • Alex Ovechkin capped a four-point night by setting up Mike Green’s goal a minute into overtime to give Washington a win over Buffalo.

Ovechkin had two goals and two assists for his 14th multipoint game of the season. Green had two goals and an assist, and Troy Bouwer also scored in a game the Capitals never trailed.

Cody Hodgson had two goals and Christian Ehrhoff and rookie Phil Varone, with the first of his career, scored for Buffalo. The Sabres dropped to 1-4-3 in their past seven.

Mikael Backlund scored twice for the Flames, who have won three straight games for the first time this season. Matt Stajan had a goal and an assist, Lance Bouma also scored and Lee Stempniak set up three goals.

Marian Hossa scored twice for the Blackhawks (32-10-13), who are 0-2-3 in their last five games. Patrick Kane and Ben Smith also scored for the defending Stanely Cup champions.

Both starting goalies were replaced.

BLUES 3, DEVILS 0

ST. LOUIS • Alexander Steen gave St. Louis the early lead and Jaroslav Halak earned his fourth shutout of the season in a victory over New Jersey.

Brenden Morrow added a power-play goal midway through the third period and Maxim Lapierre scored into an empty net with 2:08 left. The Blues have won three straight and tied the Blackhawks atop the Central Division.

The Blues cleaned up on defense a week after getting whipped 7-1 in New Jersey when Halak gave up four goals on 14 shots after relieving Brian Elliott. Halak has started all three games since, allowing a total of four goals.
