Two ex-Lightning wings join Devils

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Devils signed left wings Bruce Gardiner and Stephen Guolla, both former Lightning players, on Sunday.

Gardiner played 73 games with Columbus last season, scoring seven goals and adding 15 assists. Guolla played 63 games with Atlanta, with 12 goals and 16 assists.

Gardiner played 41 games in Tampa Bay in 1999-2000, with three goals and six assists, and went to the Blue Jackets in the expansion draft before last season.

Guolla played for the Lightning the same season and had six goals and 10 assists in 46 games. The Thrashers claimed him off waivers in March 2000.

Both were unrestricted free agents entering their sixth seasons.

Late Saturday

OILERS 6, PANTHERS 2: Ty Conklin put on a show his family will never forget.

Anson Carter scored twice and Conklin stopped 23 shots in his first NHL start for host Edmonton.

"It's a really good feeling," said Conklin, 25. "... My dad, my brother and my girlfriend came out. My dad suffered through enough 7 a.m. practices on Saturday and Sundays. I think he wanted to be out here to see it."

Conklin was recalled from Hamilton of the American Hockey League Oct. 10.

Mike Comrie, Georges Laraque and Todd Marchant each had a goal and an assist for the Oilers.

COYOTES 5, CANUCKS 2: Krystofer Kolanos scored the go-ahead goal with 6:02 remaining for host Phoenix. He picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone and scored from the bottom of the right circle.

RED WINGS 3, KINGS 2: Luc Robitaille scored the winner against his former team for host Detroit. Scotty Bowman also became the first coach in NHL history to record 1,200 wins as Detroit (7-1-0-0) won its fifth in a row.

DEVILS 3, SENATORS 2: Jason Arnott, Patrik Elias and Scott Neidermayer scored for host New Jersey, which has won two in a row after starting the season winless in four.

FLAMES 4, MAPLE LEAFS 1: Roman Turek made 22 saves and host Calgary got goals from Jarome Iginla, Dean McAmmond, Dave Lowry and Jamie Wright.

BLACKHAWKS 2, STARS 2: Phil Housley's power-play goal with 10:25 left lifted visiting Chicago.

BRUINS 2, PREDATORS 1: Mike Knuble scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period as Boston earned its first road victory.
