Power milestone for Hull

Brett Hull let only his familiar grin show what his latest milestone meant to him.

Hull tied Dave Andreychuk's NHL record with his 263d career power-play goal and Kris Draper scored twice to lead the Red Wings to a 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes last night in Detroit.

Hull scored on a one-timer -- the same way he has netted countless goals -- to give Detroit a 2-0 lead in the second period.

He chose not to talk with reporters after the game, and didn't say anything to Draper on the bench after scoring.

Hull, who has 737 goals in 18 seasons, moved past Marcel Dionne for third on the NHL career list with his 732d Dec. 8. He trails only former Red Wings great Gordie Howe (801) and Wayne Gretzky (894).

Predators 7, Sharks 3 -- Steve Sullivan made the most of his Nashville debut with three power-play goals and an assist, and Marek Zidlicky set a Predators record with five assists in a victory against visiting San Jose.

Kimmo Timonen added two goals, one on the power play, and an assist, and Scott Walker had a power-play goal and three assists. The Predators were 5 for 7 with the man advantage.

Oilers 5, Avalanche 1 -- Ryan Smyth had a goal and two assists, and Shawn Horcoff added a goal and assist as Edmonton beat Colorado in Denver.

Igor Ulanov, Steve Staios, and Jason Smith also scored in a three-goal second period for the Oilers, 0-2-1 in their previous three games. Colorado had a season-low 15 shots.

Islanders 4, Penguins 3 -- Mariusz Czerkawski scored a pair of power-play goals, and Garth Snow stopped 18 shots as New York held on for a victory over Pittsburgh in Uniondale, N.Y.

Mighty Ducks 3, Blue Jackets 1 -- Vaclav Prospal scored the go-ahead goal with 1:49 left and Cam Severson recorded his first NHL goal as Anaheim extended Columbus's road winless streak to eight games.

Stars 4, Kings 3 -- Mike Modano scored twice for his first multigoal game of the season and Dan Ellis made 25 saves in his NHL debut to lead Dallas to victory in Los Angeles.

Panthers 1, Sabres 1 -- Roberto Luongo stopped 41 shots, allowing Florida to rally for a tie against host Buffalo.
