Devils rally to overcome Capitals 3-2

SCARE:In Detroit, the Blue Jackets thumped the Red Wings 3-2 in a game that took a frightening turn after Columbus center Artem Anisimov was taken off on a stretcher


Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula scored in the first two-plus minutes of the game to put the Red Wings ahead by two, a cushion they wasted for a third time during their five-game losing streak.

R.J. Umberger’s power-play goal a couple of minutes after Detroit took their two-goal lead pulled Columbus within one. Derek Dorsett tied it in the third period for the Blue Jackets, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

The game took a frightening turn early in the second period when Columbus center Artem Anisimov was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being struck in the head by Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey. Anisimov was alert and able to move when he was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Detroit scored on their first and third shots against Sergei Bobrovsky, who bounced back to finish with 28 saves.
