DETROIT — Jarome Iginla scored with 6:28 left in overtime, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night in Game 4 of their first-round series.

The Presidents’ Trophy winners and defending Eastern Conference champions can advance with a win against Detroit on Saturday at home.

Detroit took a 2-0 lead early in the second period after Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall each had a goal and an assist.

Torey Krug scored midway through the second period to cut the Bruins’ deficit to one goal. Milan Lucic tied it at 2 early in the third period.

Boston’s Tuukka Rask stopped 35 shots. Detroit’s Jonas Gustavsson made 37 saves filling in for Jimmy Howard (flu).

Other games

At Wild 2, Avalanche 1

Charlie Coyle scored his third goal of the series for Minnesota and the Wild dominated Colorado for the second straight game to even the first-round matchup at two apiece.

The Wild outshot the Avalanche by a stunning 32-12, establishing a franchise record for fewest allowed by Minnesota. Colorado has been outshot 78-34 in the past two games, with Ryan O’Reilly getting the only goal.

Jared Spurgeon used a slap shot to get a puck past Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov just 3:47 into the game, much quicker than the 65:08 the Wild needed to score the last time. Game 5 will be in Denver on Saturday.

At Kings 6, Sharks 3

Justin Williams and Marian Gaborik scored two goals apiece and Los Angeles emphatically avoided first-round playoff elimination with a victory over San Jose in Game 4.

Captain Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist, and Tyler Toffoli scored on his 22nd birthday during a three-goal second period as the Kings dodged a series sweep with a one-sided win that could plant a seed of doubt in their dominant California rivals’ minds.

Game 5 is Saturday in San Jose.

Jonathan Quick made 36 saves for Los Angeles, which chased Sharks goalie Antti Niemi.
