Boston — Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary scored second-period goals, reserve goaltender Jonas Gustavsson made 28 saves in his first action of the season and the Detroit Red Wings edged the Boston Bruins 3-2 Monday.

Henrik Zetterberg had the other score for Detroit (4-2), which won its second straight game.

Loui Eriksson and Milan Lucic had Boston’s goals. The Bruins had a two-man, power-play advantage for nearly 2 minutes early in the third period, but couldn’t mount a comeback.

Gustavsson, playing in place of No. 1 goaltender Jimmy Howard, bobbled a few shots in the opening period, but improved as the game went on. He made a pair of stops on Jarome Iginla’s shots from the left point when the Bruins had the two-man edge for 1:54 early in the third period.

Tuukka Rask made 24 saves for Boston (3-2).

Lucic’s goal was the 100th of his career and cut it to 3-2 with 1:20 to play. With Rask pulled for an extra skater, the Bruins had the puck in Detroit’s zone for nearly all of the final 80 seconds.

Capitals 4, Oilers 2

Washington — Joel Ward, Alex Ovechkin and Troy Brouwer scored goals in less than four minutes of the second period, and Washington snapped a three-game losing streak a win over Edmonton.

With the score tied at 1, Ward took advantage of a power play and scored his first goal of the season at 10:06 of the second.

The Capitals scored four times on 20 shots against Edmonton goalie Jason LaBarbera.

Wild 2, Sabres 1

Buffalo, n.y. — Jason Pominville scored the winning goal in his return to Buffalo as Minnesota beat the winless Sabres.

Kyle Brodziak also scored for Minnesota (3-1-2). Josh Harding made 21 saves.

Buffalo (0-6-1) tied a franchise record for longest winless streak to start a season. The Sabres were 0-5-2 in 1999 and 0-4-3 in 1990.

Pominville, a former Sabres captain, played his first game in Buffalo since he was traded to Minnesota last April for center Johan Larsson, Rochester goalie Matt Hackett, a first-round pick that was used on defenseman Nikita Zadorov and a second-round selection.

Brian Flynn lifted Buffalo into a 1-1 tie with 4:56 left in the second period, scoring his first goal of the season off an assist from Zemgus Girgensons.
