NHL roundup: John Gibson, Ducks blank Stars

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Mason McTavish collected one goal and one assist and goaltender John Gibson posted his first shutout in 14 months as the host Anaheim Ducks blanked the Dallas Stars 2-0 on Wednesday.

Adam Henrique also scored for the Ducks, while Gibson made 35 saves for his 24th career shutout and first since Nov. 2, 2021.

Scott Wedgewood stopped 25 shots for the Stars, who lost two straight games in regulation time for the first time since Nov. 8 and Nov. 11. The Stars brought their fathers and mentors on a road trip through Southern California but dropped both clashes played on consecutive nights.

The Ducks went into the game with just one win in their last six games and five victories in their previous 22, sending them to the bottom of the Pacific Division, but they defeated the Central Division-leading Stars.

Wild 5, Lightning 1

Calen Addison set a Minnesota rookie record with a goal and two assists, Kirill Kaprizov scored twice to tie a team record, and the Wild beat Tampa Bay in Saint Paul, Minn.

In producing three points for the second time in his career, Addison became the first Wild rookie ever with multiple three-point outings. Kaprizov extended his home point streak to 14 games, matching the mark set by Marian Gaborik in the 2007-08 season.

Joel Eriksson Ek and Sam Steel netted goals, Matt Boldy had two assists and Filip Gustavsson made 34 saves for Minnesota. Brayden Point tallied on the power play for the Lightning, and Brian Elliott stopped 28 shots.

Devils 5, Red Wings 1

Dougie Hamilton, Jack Hughes, Alexander Holtz and Nico Hischier all had a goal and an assist to lead New Jersey over host Detroit.

Miles Wood had two assists and Vitek Vanecek made 32 saves for New Jersey, which has won both games against the Red Wings in Detroit this year.

Lucas Raymond scored a late goal for Detroit. Husso finished with 22 saves for the Red Wings.
