DEVILS 4, RED WINGS 3

NEWARK, N.J. • Martin Brodeur made 20 saves in what might have been his last game with the Devils, and Stephen Gionta scored the tiebreaking goal with under 37 seconds left to lift New Jersey to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Adam Henrique, Marek Zidlicky, and Travis Zajac also had goals for the Devils (27-23-13), who closed within one point of Detroit (28-21-12).

Johan Franzen, Brendan Smith and Todd Bertuzzi scored for the Red Wings against Brodeur, who has been the subject of trade rumors leading up to Wednesday’s NHL dealing deadline.

Gionta put the Devils ahead for good when he tipped Mark Fayne’s point shot past Jimmy Howard for the winning goal.

Howard finished with 25 saves.

BRUINS 4, PANTHERS 1

BOSTON • David Krejci scored three goals for Boston in a win over Florida, hours after the visiting Panthers made a series of deals to retool their lineup.

Jarome Iginla also scored for the Bruins, who kept former Boston goalie Tim Thomas busy all night with 39 shots on goal.

It was possibly Thomas’ last game for the Panthers, who earlier Tuesday acquired veteran Roberto Luongo from Vancouver.

Thomas allowed three goals before Krejci scored in an empty net with 14 seconds left.

Boston backup goalie Chad Johnson had a much quieter night, facing 24 shots as the Bruins beat Florida for the seventh straight time. Johnson had a shutout until Florida defenseman Brian Campbell scored with 7:13 left.

BLUE JACKETS 4, STARS 2

COLUMBUS, Ohio • Artem Anisimov scored twice, including a late insurance goal, and Columbus held off a third-period rally to beat Dallas.

The Blue Jackets have won three in a row and are vying for only their second postseason appearance since joining the NHL in 2000.

Columbus scored on the first shot of the game and bolted to a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Boone Jenner, R.J. Umberger and Anisimov against backup Dan Ellis. Ellis was shaky early in making his first appearance since Feb. 1.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves, one on an open shot by Jamie Benn with 5 minutes left with the Blue Jackets clinging to a one-goal lead. Bobrovsky solidly tracked loose pucks near the crease the entire game to improve to 5-0-1 against Dallas.

Defensemen Alex Goligoski and Trevor Daley had goals early in the third period for the Stars.
