Step 1 for winning on the road: Score three goals in a 12-minute span. Step 2: Hold the opponent without a shot in that stretch. That's exactly what the Rangers did in a 5-2 win over the Wild in Minnesota. Marian had an assist in his first game in Minnesota as a visiting player and Martin Biron made 26 saves. Artem Anisimov, Michael Del Zotto, Alexander Frolov, Brandon Dubinsky and Ruslan Fedotenko had the goals for the Rangers, who bounced back from a loss at Colorado to improve to 7-3-0 on the road this season.

The Islanders lost their 12th straight game -- and their second under Jack Capuano -- in a 4-1 loss to the Panthers. They have an NHL-worst 11 points and have 11 goals in their last 10 games. It can't get worse, can it?

The Devils are only one point ahead of the Islanders. They lost 3-2 to St. Louis. David Clarksonand Mattias Tedenby had the goals for New Jersey, which has lost three straight.

Seven Nets scored in double figures, but Carmelo Anthony and the Nuggets proved to be too much in a 107-103 win over the Nets. The Nets have now lost three of four games on their western swing.
