BOSTON — Brad Marchand scored two goals, and Tuukka Rask stopped 40 shots, leading the Bruins to a 6-2 victory over the struggling Hurricanes on Monday night.

Ducks 2, Oilers 1 — In Anaheim, Calif., Radek Dvorak scored two goals, Jonas Hiller made 27 saves after missing four games because of an illness, and Anaheim inched closer to the Pacific Division title.

Canucks 2, Coyotes 0 — In Vancouver, British Columbia, Ryan Kesler scored, Dam Hamhuis added an empty-netter, and Cory Schneider made 19 saves to lead Vancouver.

Flames 3, Avalanche 1 — In Denver, Mike Cammalleri broke a second-period tie, and Joey MacDonald stopped 39 shots, helping the Flames snap a 13-game road winless streak.
