  • DETROIT — Jarome Iginla scored with 6:28 left in overtime on a redirected shot that went off an opponent, lifting the Bruins to a 3-2 win over Detroit on Thursday night in Game 4 of their first-round series to finish off a comeback from a two-goal deficit.
    The Presidents' Trophy winners and defending Eastern Conference champions can advance with a win against the Red Wings on Saturday at home.
    Detroit took a 2-0 lead early in the second period after Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall each had a goal and an assist.
    Torey Krug scored midway through the second period to pull the Bruins within a goal. Milan Lucic tied it at 2 early in the third period.
    Boston's Tuukka Rask stopped 35 shots. Detroit's Jonas Gustavsson made 37 saves in a surprise start Thursday night, filling in for Jimmy Howard, who was out with the flu.

    At St. Paul, Minn., Charlie Coyle scored his third goal of the series for Minnesota, and the Wild dominated the Colorado Avalanche for the second straight game on their way to a win that evened the first-round matchup at two apiece.
    The Wild outshot the Avalanche a stunning 32-12, establishing a franchise record for fewest allowed by Minnesota. Colorado has been outshot 78-34 in the last two games, with Ryan O'Reilly getting the only goal.
    Kings 6, Sharks 3
