NHL Roundup: B's Bounce Back, Beat Preds 6-2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Carl Soderberg scored on the power play goal and had two assists, Jarome Iginla added a pair of goals and the Boston Bruins beat the Nashville Predators 6-2 Monday night.

Brad Marchand, Matt Fraser and Reilly Smith also scored for Boston, which gave coach Claude Julien his 400th career win.

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston. Craig Smith scored twice for Nashville.

The Bruins scored three goals in the first period.

At the 1:16 mark, Zdena Chara took a shot from inside the blue line that was deflected into the net by Iginla, who was stationed in front of the goal.

Fraser scored his first goal of the season, beating Predators goalie Carter Hutton on a breakaway with a snap shot into the top right corner of the net at 5:59.

Hutton was replaced by Marek Mazanec after Fraser's goal.

BLACKHAWKS 5, DEVILS 2: In Chicago, Patrick Sharp scored twice and Patrick Kane, Bryan Bickell and Nick Leddy also connected to lead Chicago.

Stephen Gionta and Michael Ryder had goals for the Devils, whose season-high four-game point streak (3-0-1) ended.

Kane has points in 12 straight games, matching his career high -- set earlier this season and just before his run.

He has seven goals and 14 assists in his streak, and at least one point in all but one of his past 25 games, helping him climb into second in the NHL scoring race behind Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby.

Bickell's goal was his first since Nov. 10, but he missed 14 of Chicago's 19 games during that span with a knee injury.

Chicago rookie Antti Raanta blocked 10 shots in his seventh straight start -- all since Blackhawks top goalie Corey Crawford suffered a lower-body injury on Dec. 8.

RANGERS 2, LEAFS 1, SO: In New York, Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as New York Rangers shook off a late tying tally.

Zuccarello and Stepan scored in the first two rounds, and Talbot stopped Nazem Kadri in the third to end it. Kadri scored a disputed goal with 1:24 left in regulation to force overtime.

Jonathan Bernier was exceptional for Toronto, making 42 saves through overtime and allowing only J.T. Miller's goal 7:04 into the third period. The Maple Leafs played their third straight shootout and lost for the second consecutive time. They are 2-5-2 in their last nine.

SENS 5, PENS 0: In Ottawa, Craig Anderson made 27 saves for his second shutout of the season.

The game was close after two periods but the Senators dominated the Penguins in the third outshooting them 15-9 while getting goals from Erik Karlsson, Kyle Turris and Cory Conacher.

Zack Smith and Bobby Ryan also scored for the Senators and Anderson earned the 24th shutout of his career.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for the Penguins, but had his five-game winning streak come to an end.

The win ended a three-game losing streak for the Senators with all three of those losses coming in Ottawa.

The Penguins had won 12 of their past 13 games in Ottawa, including seven in a row.

LIGHTNING 6, PANTHERS 1: In Sunrise, Fla., Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists and Tampa Bay extended its winning streak to five games.

Valtteri Filppula had a goal and an assist and Victor Hedman had three assists. J.T. Brown added two third-period goals for Tampa Bay.

Alexander Killorn and Tyler Johnson also scored for the Lightning.

Ben Bishop made 28 saves for his 20th victory of the season.

Sean Bergenheim scored and Scott Clemmensen made 30 saves for Florida.

ISLANDERS 3, RED WINGS 0: In Detroit, Evgeni Nabokov made 23 saves for his 56th career shutout.

Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner, Casey Cizikas scored for New York. The Islanders have only won three of their past 17 (3-10-4).

Petr Mrazek stopped 16 shots for Detroit.

Okposo opened the scoring with 9:03 left in the first when he put a cross-crease pass into the empty-side of the net off the rush for his 12th goal.

Grabner got his fifth goal, with 4:53 remaining in the opening period, when his shot from the left circle deflected off the stick of Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith. Cizikas made it 3-0, with 3:05 left in the first period, when he put in a one-time shot from in front of the net. It was Cizikas' fourth goal.
