NHL Headline News

 DALLAS (AP) - Alex Chiasson broke a third-period tie with his first goal in 13 games, and Lindy Ruff earned his 600th NHL coaching victory with a 3-2 win over his former team, the Buffalo Sabres, on Monday night.
Jamie Benn's slap shot from the blue line deflected off Chiasson and past goalie Jhonas Enroth for a power-play goal at 10:25 of the third. Ruff posted his first 571 wins with the Sabres before joining the Stars.
Defensemen Jordie Benn and Alex Goligoski both scored their third goal of the season for the Stars, who overcame a 1-0 deficit. Benn had been scoreless for 11 games, and Goligoski had gone 48 without a goal.
Tyler Ennis scored twice for Buffalo, with Matt Moulson assisting on both goals. The second got the Sabres even at 3:23 of the third.
Enroth made 36 saves, and Dallas' Kari Lehtonen had 21.
WILD 3, FLAMES 2
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Jared Spurgeon's power-play goal in the third period helped Minnesota beat Calgary and notch its season-high fifth straight win.
Kyle Brodziak also scored, rookie Darcy Kuemper stopped 21 shots during his 15th start in a row, and the Wild raised their record at home to 22-7-2. Playing in front of their fans for the first time in 25 days due to the Olympic break, the Wild also improved to 14-4-2 since the new year began while welcoming captain Mikko Koivu back from injury.
Zach Parise gave the Wild some insurance by deflecting a shot past Reto Berra with 5:16 remaining for his 21st goal. Just 77 seconds later, Mark Giordano scored to bring the Flames back within a goal. But Kuemper hung on to raise his record to 11-3-2.
Mike Cammalleri, playing perhaps his last game for the Flames with the NHL trade deadline looming on Wednesday, tied it 1-1 in the second period.
Mikael Granlund had two assists while playing in the NHL for the first time against his brother Markus Granlund.
BLUE JACKETS 2, MAPLE LEAFS 1
TORONTO (AP) - Dalton Prout and Artem Anisimov scored second-period goals, and Columbus held off Toronto.
The Maple Leafs dropped their third straight since the Winter Olympics. They had won seven consecutive at home, their best stretch there since a nine-game run in the 2006-07 season.
Prout, a defenseman, and Anisimov scored less than three minutes apart for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves in the win. The Blue Jackets completed a three-game season sweep of Toronto.
Mason Raymond had the lone goal for Toronto, bringing the Maple Leafs within a goal with 4:15 remaining. Toronto made a late flurry after goalie James Reimer was pulled for an extra skater, but couldn't tie it.
Reimer, in his first start since Jan. 25, made 31 saves. Toronto had won five of six before the Olympic break.
