Red Wings hold off gritty Sabres, 3-2

Buffalo trailed 3-0, but fought back to make it close.

DETROIIT —

Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and an assist and the Detroit Red Wings held off the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Friday night.
Darren Helm and Tomas Jurco also scored for Detroit. Danny DeKeyser had two assists and Jimmy Howard made 21 saves.
It was Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's 413 win for Detroit, which ties him with Jack Adams for the all-time franchise record.
Jamie McBain scored and Nicolas Deslauriers got his first career goal for Buffalo, which has the NHL's worst record. Matt Hackett stopped 28 shots.
 
 
Flames 2, Panthers 1
SUNRISE, Fla. — Mike Cammalleri scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and the Calgary Flames beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 Friday night.
Kenny Agostino also scored for Calgary and Joey MacDonald stopped 34 shots.
Vincent Trocheck scored for the Panthers, and Roberto Luongo made 15 saves.
Luongo started his first game since March 27th against Carolina when he left after the first period following a collision with the Hurricanes' Radek Dvorak. Luongo sustained a mild concussion and missed three games.
 
Chicago 4, Blue Jackets 3
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ben Smith tapped in a rebound with 3.7 seconds left on a wild scrum to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.
With time running out, Duncan Keith threw the puck on net and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky blocked it with his arm but it popped out of his reach. While he and two teammates scrambled to get to the loose puck, Smith got a stick on it and pushed it into the net.
Jeremy Morin, Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa also had goals for Chicago, and Keith had three assists. Antti Raanta had 24 saves.
Derek MacKenzie, Ryan Johansen and Artem Anisimov scored for Columbus, in the middle of a fight for the playoffs and in dire need of points. Bobrovsky had 34 saves.
