The Penguins (5-6-3) led, 5-2, midway through the second period, but Boston scored twice in a span of 1:51 during a two-man advantage.

The Bruins tied it at 12:52 of the third period on Ruzicka's eighth goal of the season.

Philadelphia 4, St. Louis 3--Rick Tocchet scored twice in the first period at St. Louis as the Flyers took a three-goal lead and hung on for the victory that ended the Blues' eight-game unbeaten streak.

Steve Duchesne added a goal and an assist for the Flyers.

Brett Hull scored two goals for the Blues.

Minnesota 3, Detroit 2--Dave Gagner's second goal of the game broke a tie with 5:32 left to give the North Stars the victory at Detroit.

Winnipeg 2, Vancouver 2--Troy Murray scored in the second period and Luciano Borsato in the third to give the Jets a 2-1 lead, but Robert Dirk scored for Vancouver at 13:35 for the tie.
