Craig Anderson made 34 saves, and Kyle Turris scored two goals as the Ottawa Senators beat the New Jersey Devils, 2-0, on Wednesday night in Newark, N.J.
Anderson earned his third shutout of the season and 29th in his NHL career. He had struggled recently, going 2-6-2 in his previous 10 starts.
New Senators coach Dave Cameron improved to 2-1-1 since he replaced the fired Paul MacLean.
The Devils, whose losing streak was extended to five games, went 0 for 5 on the power play.
Bruins 3, Wild 2 - Loui Eriksson scored in overtime as Boston halted a three-game losing streak with the win in St. Paul, Minn.
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby returned from a bout with mumps, while several teammates were tested for the virus as a precaution.
Crosby worked out Wednesday for the first time after missing three games over the weekend. He could return to the lineup as early as Thursday night, when the Penguins face Colorado.
General manager Jim Rutherford said that Crosby was "doing well" and that he would let Crosby and coach Mike Johnston decide the timetable for a possible return.
The NHL fined Nashville Predators forward James Neal $2,000 for violating the league's revised rule against diving and embellishing.
The new rule, implemented for this season after approval by the NHL board of governors and the players union, is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players and teams who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties.
Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale.
Neal was issued a warning after an infraction at St. Louis on Nov. 13. No penalty was called then. His second violation at San Jose on Saturday led to the fine imposed Wednesday. Neal received a penalty for embellishment on that play.
Third and fourth violations carry fines of $3,000 and $4,000, respectively. A fifth violation yields a maximum $5,000 fine for a player and $2,000 for the head coach.
Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley reached an agreement with the team on a multiyear contract extension, a clear signal he and new general manager Brad Treliving can work together.
The deal, made in Hartley's third season, could make him one of the longest-serving coaches in Flames history. Bob Johnson was behind Calgary's bench for five seasons, 1982-83 to 1986-87.
Hartley was hired by former general manager Jay Feaster, who was fired Dec. 12, 2012. Calgary's president of hockey operations, Brian Burke, served as interim GM until appointing Treliving as his replacement in April.
