CALGARY, Alberta – Henrik Zetterberg scored twice to help the Detroit Red Wings run their win streak to seven with a 4-1 victory Thursday night over the Calgary Flames.

Zetterberg has 12 goals and at least one point in all 14 of Detroit’s games this season, and helped the Red Wings take all three games of a trip to western Canada for the first time in 21 attempts.

Alex Tanguay scored for Calgary, which ended its season-long seven-game homestand at 4-2-1.

Canadiens 5, Flyers 2

MONTREAL – Saku Koivu had a goal and an assist and Cristobal Huet stopped 16 shots.

Alex Kovalev and Tom Kostopoulos scored special-teams goals in the second period, and Guillaume Latendresse scored in the third on a fine pass by Koivu, who opened the scoring 8:53 in.

Chris Higgins scored on a 5-on-3 at 16:42 of the third as Montreal remained undefeated through regulation in six games (5-0-1).

Senators 6, Thrashers 4

OTTAWA – Randy Robitaille scored his first two goals for Ottawa before leaving with an injury.

Robitaille, signed as a free agent earlier this month, scored twice to stake Ottawa to a 2-0 lead early in the second period, but was hit by Thrashers defenseman Garnet Exelby and didn’t return.

The Senators (10-1-0) almost blew it without him. Although Ottawa scored three more times, the Thrashers rallied with four consecutive goals in the third period, including three by Ilya Kovalchuk.

Rangers 2, Capitals 0

NEW YORK – Chris Drury scored his first goal since opening night, and Henrik Lundqvist earned another shutout as the New York Rangers went on their first winning streak of the season.

Lundqvist made 31 saves and has been a big reason why the punchless Rangers have had success in the early going.

Islanders 4, Lightning 0

UNIONDALE, N.Y. – Rick DiPietro turned aside 28 shots for his 12th career shutout and added an assist.

Bill Guerin, Josef Vasicek, Ruslan Fedotenko and Trent Hunter scored for the Islanders.

The Lightning got 28 saves from Marc Denis. Tampa Bay has lost all six road games and has allowed 28 goals away from home.
