The Boston Bruins moved top of the NHL North-East Division with a 5-4 win over the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday.

Gregory Campbell scored twice and Jaromir Jagr had two assists as the Bruins inflicted an eighth straight defeat on the Devils, only two short of their franchise record.

In the Devils' Atlantic Division, the New York Rangers moved level on 44 points with city rivals the Islanders after a shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Phil Kessel's two goals were in vain as Mats Zuccarello scored the only goal in the shootout to give the Rangers a 3-2 win.

In the Western Conference, Pacific Division leaders the Anaheim Ducks suffered a rare defeat, going down 4-1 to the Colorado Avalanche.

Matt Duchene had a goal and an assist and PA Parenteau two assists as the Avalanche won on the road for the first time in almost two months.

The Vancouver Canucks, top of the North-West Division, beat divisional rivals and fellow Canadians the Calgary Flames 4-1.

Roberto Luongo made 40 saves before his Canucks team-mates scored three times in the second half of the third period, Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler claiming two assists apiece.

The Phoenix Coyotes beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-1, Boyd Gordon and David Moss each with a goal and an assist.
