Danny DeKeyser scored for the Red Wings, who went to third-string goalie Petr Mrazek when Jimmy Howard couldn’t play because of the flu. Mrazek stopped 33 shots.

Detroit has dropped four of five.

Stars 3, Blues 2 — Jamie Benn scored 3:42 into overtime, giving Dallas a victory in St. Louis, one night after Peverley collapsed on the bench.

Defensemen Alex Pietrangelo and Roman Polak ended lengthy goal droughts for the Blues, who lost for the first time in five games with new goalie Ryan Miller.


Colton Sceviour, among two call-ups by the Stars with Peverley out indefinitely and teammate Alex Chiasson also hospitalized due to emotional distress after his teammate’s ‘‘cardiac event,’’ scored on a power play in the first period.

Miller robbed the other call-up, Chris Mueller, with a glove save from point-blank range with 2:16 to go in the third. But he couldn’t corral a shot by Benn, the Stars captain, that gave Dallas its fourth win in five games.

Devils 2, Flyers 1 — Jaromir Jagr scored the winning goal to snap a third-period tie and lead New Jersey over host Philadelphia.

Travis Zajac had the other goal for the Devils, who won for the fifth time in seven games to move within 2 points of the third-place Flyers in the tightly-bunched Metropolitan Division.

Nicklas Grossman scored for the Flyers, who are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. Philadelphia had a potential tying goal by Scott Hartnell disallowed by officials with 40.1 seconds remaining because it was determined that Hartnell pushed goalie Martin Brodeur into the net.


Penguins 2, Capitals 0 — Marc-Andre Fleury made 32 saves for his fifth shutout of the season, leading host Pittsburgh over Washington.

Jussi Jokinen and Sidney Crosby scored for the Penguins.

The Penguins have also beaten their longtime rivals a franchise-record eight straight times.

Alexander Ovechkin was held without a point for the fourth consecutive game as the Capitals lost for the fourth time in their last five.

Hurricanes 3, Rangers 1 — Jordan Staal and Jiri Tlusty both had a goal and an assist, and host Carolina snapped a 10-game losing streak against New York.

Elias Lindholm added an insurance goal for Carolina late in the third period. Cam Ward made 24 saves for his first win since Dec. 31.

Predators 4, Sabres 1 — Shea Weber had a goal and an assist and Nashville won its second straight road game with a victory over Buffalo.

Nick Spaling, Craig Smith, and Paul Gaustad also scored for the Predators.

Coyotes 3, Panthers 1 — Radim Vrbata had a goal and two assists to lead visiting Phoenix.

Oilers 4, Wild 3 — In St. Paul, Minn., Taylor Hall scored in the fourth round of the shootout to lift Edmonton.

Sharks 6, Maple Leafs 2 — Joe Pavelski scored a pair of goals and added an assist to lift host San Jose.
