The Red Wings beat the Wild 3-2 on Saturday afternoon in St. Paul.
Moulson tipped in Jonas Brodin's pass for his 21st goal.
Tatar tied it 3-3 with 8:17 remaining in the third with a shot from the right circle off the rush. It was his 16th goal.
PREDATORS 2, BLACKHAWKS 0
CHICAGO (AP) — Pekka Rinne made 29 saves for his first shutout in more than a year to lead Nashville over Chicago.
The Blackhawks outshot the Predators 29-17 and generated ample chances despite playing their second game without Patrick Kane, the team's leading scorer when he was injured against St. Louis on Wednesday. The star forward is on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and could miss the rest of the regular season.
Chicago fell six points behind Western Conference and Central Division leader St. Louis, which defeated Pittsburgh 1-0 earlier on Sunday.
The Blackhawks' Corey Crawford made 15 saves.
DEVILS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Rookie defenceman Jon Merrill set up a second-period breakaway goal by Patrik Elias and scored 32 seconds later to lead New Jersey to a much-needed win over Toronto, sending the struggling Maple Leafs to their fifth straight loss.
The skid ties Toronto's longest of the season and it could not have come at a worse with nine games left in the regular season.
BLUES 1, PENGUINS 0
Fleury made 26 saves for the Penguins but watched Backes' deflection carom off his glove and into the net just after a penalty against Malkin expired.
St. Louis bounced back from a one-sided loss at Philadelphia on Saturday to improve the league's best road record to 23-11-3. Pittsburgh's top-ranked power play went 0-for-5 a day after scoring three times in a win over Tampa Bay.
DUCKS 6, PANTHERS 2
Patrick Maroon also scored an early goal before leaving the game with a lower-body injury for the Ducks, who pulled within one point of San Jose atop the Pacific Division standings.
Jonas Hiller made 28 saves for Anaheim, which is four points behind Western Conference-leading St. Louis with 11 games left.
ISLANDERS 2, BLUE JACKETS 0
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Evgeni Nabokov made 41 saves in his 58th NHL shutout, and Travis Hamonic scored a coast-to-coast, power-play goal in the second period and New York dealt the Blue Jackets' playoff hopes a severe blow.
Nabokov got the best of Russian counterpart Sergei Bobrovsky in their third meeting this season and posted his third shutout in this campaign. It was just the Islanders' second regulation win ever over the Blue Jackets.
Columbus, which has dropped to fifth in the Metropolitan Division, has fallen out of an Eastern Conference playoff position with 11 games left. The Blue Jackets lost their second straight game and for the third time in four. This one was particularly costly as the Islanders are far out of post-season contention.
Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders, who bounced back from a 6-0 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday and finished a 2-2 homestand.
CANUCKS 4, SABRES 2
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Zack Kassian had four assists and Vancouver rallied to beat Buffalo.
The Canucks have consecutive wins for the first time since mid-January. Vancouver pulled within three points of eighth-place Phoenix, and one point of ninth-place Dallas in the race for the second wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference.
The Sabres, last in the NHL by a wide margin, suffered their eighth loss in the past 10 games as they squandered an early 2-0 lead.
