NHL Report / Scores and fast facts

>Tuesday's games

Minnesota 2, New Jersey 1: Clayton Stoner dumped the puck along the right boards into the Devils' end, and it caromed off the boards and angled into the open net -- goalie Johan Hedberg had gone behind the net to play the puck -- for his first NHL goal 1:14 into the third period. It was the game-winner. D Mark Fraser returned for the Devils after missing 34 games with a broken hand.

Tampa Bay 1, Washington 0: Martin St. Louis scored in OT and newcomer Dwayne Roloson stopped 34 shots for Tampa Bay.

Phoenix 4, Columbus 2: Shane Doan scored with 8:19 remaining to lift the Coyotes, who won for the third time in eight games.

Detroit 5, Edmonton 3: Todd Bertuzzi scored twice, breaking a tie with 2:50 left when his shot banked in off the skate of defenseman Ladislav Smid. The Oilers have lost seven straight.


>Late Monday

N.Y. Islanders 5, Calgary 2: John Tavares had two goals for the Islanders, who are 7-1-1 in their last nine games after starting the season 5-18-5.

Chicago 4, Los Angeles 3: Jonathan Toews scored the winning goal off his own skate at 14:33 of the third period for the Hawks.

Vancouver 4, San Jose 3: Alex Burrows scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period for the Canucks.
