A goal in the closing seconds from Jonathan Ericsson secured a thrilling 3-2 win for the Detroit Red Wings against the Los Angeles Kings.

The game had been in the balance after the Red Wings saw goals from Pavel Datsyuk and Damien Brunner cancelled out by Anze Kopitar and Alec Martinez.

But with just five seconds remaining, Ericsson took advantage of Los Angeles' failure to clear the puck and his slapshot sealed the win.

David Clarkson scored twice as the New Jersey Devils defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1.

Ilya Kovalchuk also scored to put the Devils firmly on course for a fifth successive win before James Neal pulled one back for the Penguins.

The Tampa Bay Lightning suffered their fifth defeat in a row after a 5-1 thrashing against the New York Rangers.

Consolation

Carl Hagelin (2), Ryan Callahan, Arron Asham and Rick Nash all scored for the Rangers, with Vincent Lecavalier's strike scant consolation for Tampa Bay.

The Boston Bruins claimed their third successive win after they saw off the Buffalo Sabres 3-1.

Third-period strikes from Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic sealed the win for the Bruins after Brad Marchand's goal was cancelled out by Buffalo's Tyler Ennis.

Marcus Kruger, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were all on-target as the Chicao Blackhawks shut out the Nashville Predators 3-0 and the Columbus Blue Jackets suffered their seventh defeat in 10 matches, going down 3-1 to the Edmonton Oilers.
