Osgood returns to help Wings upstage Kings

CHRIS Osgood made 30 saves in his return to Detroit's lineup after a four-game break, leading the Stanley Cup champions Red Wings to a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings in Detroit on Friday.

Detroit became the third team this season to reach the 90-point mark, after the San Jose Sharks and the Boston Bruins.

Derek Meech opened the scoring with 7:52 left in the second period, charging in from the point to put in a rebound off a goal-mouth scramble.

Tomas Kopecky made it 2-0 early in the third period when he beat Kings goalie Jonathan Quick on a one-timer from along the goal line.

Alexander Frolov pulled one back for the Kings almost five minutes into the last period, but they could not draw level. Quick had 39 saves.

Elsewhere in the National Hockey League, it was: Canadiens 4, Flyers 3 (in overtime); Flames 4, Wild 1; Penguins 5, Blackhawks 4 (in OT); and Canucks 2, Lightning 1.

In Philadelphia, Mathieu Schneider scored on a powerplay at 3:21 of overtime to lift Montreal over Philadelphia.

Schneider - recently acquired from Atlanta - scored his seventh goal of the season on a wrist shot from the right circle.

The Flyers outshot the Habs 37-31 in regulation, but wasted all eight powerplay attempts. Philadelphia, with the best record for converting powerplays at home, failed to convert on both its 5-on-3 advantages.

In Calgary, Alberta, Calgary notched a fourth straight win by downing Minnesota.

Mike Cammalleri scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season, and Miikka Kiprusoff made 15 saves.

The Flames, 10 points clear atop the Northwest Division, have earned points in nine games in a row.

In Chicago, league points leader Evgeni Malkin scored on a powerplay early in overtime as Pittsburgh escaped with victory after allowing Chicago to force the extra period.

Malkin ripped a one-timer from the right circle with just two seconds of penalty time remaining.

The Blackhawks rebounded from 0-2 and 2-4 deficits to send the game to overtime.

In Vancouver, the hosts edged Tampa Bay to go outright fifth in the Western Conference playoff race.

Steve Bernier scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, and the Canucks kept the Lightning winless in Vancouver.
