BRUINS 4, DEVILS 2

Patrice Bergeron and Chris Kelly also scored and Chad Johnson made 20 saves as the Eastern Conference leaders hurt the Devils’ postseason hopes by sending them to their third straight loss.

The 10-game winning streak ties Anaheim for the NHL’s longest this season. It is the Bruins’ longest since a 10-game run in November 2011, and four shy of the franchise record set in 1929-30.

Patrik Elias and Travis Zajac scored for the Devils, who are now in danger of missing the playoffs for the second straight year and third time in four. Martin Brodeur made 27 saves.

RANGERS 8, SENATORS 4

OTTAWA, Ontario • Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to become the Rangers’ winningest goalie and New York used a four-goal second period to cruise past the Ottawa Senators.

Lundqvist, who made 16 of his saves in the second period, has 302 victories — one more than Mike Richter. He is also one shutout shy of 50 for his career.

Derick Brassard, Benoit Pouliot, John Moore and Ryan McDonagh all scored in the second, with the final three coming less than four minutes apart late in the period. Brassard and Rick Nash each finished with two goals.

Mike Hoffman, Mika Zibanejad, Milan Michalek and Bobby Ryan scored for the Senators, who have lost four straight and eight of 10.

CANADIENS 6, AVALANCHE 3

MONTREAL • Thomas Vanek had a hat trick to lift Montreal over the Colorado Avalanche in former Canadiens great Patrick Roy’s first game at the Bell Centre as an NHL head coach.

Brandon Prust, who left the game late in the first period with an injury, returned to score a goal and set up one by Travis Moen for Montreal, which won its third game in a row. Vanek got his first goal in six games since he was acquired in a trade deadline deal.

Trailing by two goals, Roy pulled goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with 2:20 left to play, but Dale Weise scored into the empty net.

Rookie Nathan MacKinnon scored a highlight-reel goal and Max Talbot and Jamie McGinn also scored for the Avalanche, who lost for only the third time in 10 games.

WILD 6, ISLANDERS 0

UNIONDALE, N.Y. • Matt Moulson scored twice and had three points in his first game against the Islanders since being traded earlier this season, and Ilya Bryzgalov was solid in making 36 saves as the Minnesota Wild made the most of 22 shots.

Moulson, an impending free agent dealt by the Islanders to Buffalo in October before being shipped to Minnesota at the trade deadline, scored the first of the Wild’s two goals in the opening period and their third in the final frame.
