PITTSBURGH (AP) -Arron Asham's tiebreaking goal with 9:22 left gave the New Jersey Devils a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in a wild game Wednesday night.
Asham scored on a tap-in from just to the left of the net off a pass from Zach Parise, who had three assists. Travis Zajac had two goals, and Jay Pandolfo, John Madden and David Clarkson each had two points for New Jersey, which scored 11 goals in two games after netting only seven in its first four.
Sergei Gonchar had a goal and two assists, and Evgeni Malkin and Gary Roberts added a goal and assist each for the Penguins.
The teams combined to go 5-for-12 on the power play. The Penguins nearly scored another goal but it was disallowed due to a disputed too many men on the ice penalty. Pittsburgh also argued that Zajac's second goal shouldn't have counted because Brian Gionta fell on top of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in the crease.
There were also several delays when fans threw items onto the ice.
Stars 3, Blue Jackets 2, SO
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jussi Jokinen scored in regulation and had the only shootout goal to give Dallas the victory over Columbus before the smallest crowd to watch an NHL game at Nationwide Arena.
Jokinen, who tied it 1-1 early in the first period, was the second skater during the shootout. He beat Fredrik Norrena with a deke and a backhander.
The crowd of 11,820 was the smallest announced attendance for a Blue Jackets regular-season home game.
The Stars forced overtime when Brenden Morrow converted a one-timer from the high slot with 1:11 remaining - seconds after Dallas pulled Smith for an extra attacker.
The Blue Jackets took a 2-1 lead at 8:24 of the third period on Jiri Novotny's diving jam shot after his first shot hit the post. Rick Nash added a goal and assist.
