Johan Franzen also scored for Detroit and Chris Osgood made 15 saves.
Chris Kunitz scored Anaheim’s goal and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 37 shots before being removed after two periods. Jonas Hiller made eight saves in the third period.
Predators 2, Sabres 0
BUFFALO, N.Y. ó Pekka Rinne made 30 saves for his first career shutout, Jason Arnott snapped a tie in the third period and Nashville beat the Sabres.
J.P. Dumont also scored and had an assist for the Predators (12-10-2), who won for the third time in five games.
Blue Jackets 3, Canucks 2
COLUMBUS, Ohio ó Kristian Huselius scored off a pass from Rick Nash with 4:44 left and the Blue Jackets got their first win this season after allowing the first goal.
Columbus came in 0-6-3 when the opponent scored first, becoming the last team in the NHL to win after falling behind 1-0.
Rookie Steve Mason improved to 6-2-1 in his first professional season, stopping 29 shots.
Avalanche 6, Wild 5
ST. PAUL, Minn. ó Paul Stastny had two goals and an assist, and the low-scoring Avalanche broke out for a win over Minnesota.
Marek Svatos, David Jones, T.J. Hensick and Milan Hejduk also scored for Colorado, which entered the game as the second lowest scoring team in the Western Conference. The six goals were a season high for the Avalanche.
The Avalanche (12-12-0) had a 20-6 advantage in shots midway through the second period and capitalized on several Wild turnovers and miscues to build an insurmountable lead.
ROGERS HURT
RALEIGH ó Former NBA standout Rodney Rogers was hospitalized after getting injured while riding an all-terrain vehicle.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol said Monday that Rogers was four-wheeling in the woods in rural Vance County north of Raleigh on Saturday when he fell off the vehicle.
A patrol spokesman said Rogers was taken by helicopter to Duke University Hospital in Durham. His condition wasn’t immediately known.
Rogers spent 12 seasons in the NBA from 1993-2005 and won the league’s Sixth Man Award in 2000 with the Phoenix Suns. The former Wake Forest star averaged 19.3 points and 7.9 rebounds per game during three seasons with the Demon Deacons. He was selected a second-team All-America by The Associated Press in 1993.
NASCAR
MOORESVILLE ó Scott Speed will race full-time next season in NASCAR’s elite Sprint Cup Series, a move anticipated since Red Bull Racing released AJ Allmendinger to make room for the former Formula One driver.
The team will change the Toyota from the No. 84 to No. 82 to accommodate Speed, who has been training for NASCAR since his summer 2007 release from Red Bull’s F1 team. Jimmy Elledge will be his crew chief.
Speed ran the final five Cup races of the year, and his best finish was 16th in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway when he drove teammate Brian Vickers’ car.
