Columbus 2
Carolina 3 (Recap)

Buffalo 0
Pittsburgh 3 (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* Tyler Seguin had two goals and an assist, while Jamie Benn had one and one…but the Avs still won 4-3 in regulation. Tough one for the Stars. They played well, but Semyon Varlamov made 41 saves.

* Pretty predictable game for the Penguins. They beat Buffalo 3-0 on the strength of two point games from…Tanner Glass and Craig Adams. Sure. (Sid had two assists as well.)

* Columbus scored twice in the first three minutes against Carolina, and the rout was on. Except the didn’t score again, and this happened.

staals goals

Game, ‘Canes.

* Brad Marchand had a goal and three assists against the Isles – that dude has been on a tear lately (12 points over a six game point streak). Also on a tear: Kyle Okposo. More on him in “An Opinion.”

* David Perron put a puck in the empty net with just over a minute left to complete his hat-trick, and seal the victory for the Oilers. It’s the second of his career, both against the Canucks. Jordan Schroeder scored twice for Vancouver, his first two of the year.

* Jonathan Quick had a 23 save shutout in a 1-0 Kings win over the Sharks.

rangers win


Chicago (Recap)

NY Rangers 7
New Jersey 3 (Recap)

Florida 5
Detroit 4 (SO) (Recap)

Vancouver (Recap)

Edmonton (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* Tomas Tatar and Riley Sheahan each had a goal and an assist for the Red Wings, but it wasn’t enough. Detroit led the lead slip away, and Florida took the game in a shootout. By the way, Florida is now 0 for their last 42 powerplays!

* Jaromir Jagr had two assists while Patrick Elias scored two goals, but it was the Rangers who ran away with the game 7-3. Mats Zuccarello had two for New York, and ended up with the team’s “Broadway hat.”

* Blake Wheeler scored twice (one into an empty net) as the Jets beat the Blackhawks in Chicago 3-1. The Jets are now 6-1(!) with Paul Maurice behind the bench.

* I have NO idea how this is possible, but Ryan Smyth scored on the PP, which ties him for 2nd on the Edmonton Oilers in powerplay goals with the club at 125…with Wayne Gretzky. He’s now one back of Glen Anderson for first.

* Ben Scrivens stopped 34 pucks and was named the first star for the Oilers.

* Antoine Vermette had a hat-trick against the Canucks in a losing cause. It was Kevin Bieksa who got the OT winner for Vancouver, his second of the night.

Carolina 5
Buffalo 3 (Recap)

Winnipeg 0
San Jose 1 (Recap)

Nashville 2
Vancouver 1 (Recap)

Los Angeles 1
Anaheim 2 (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* I don’t normally do this, but here’s a couple negative stats. Jonathan Bernier was yanked after giving up three on 13 shots, then Reimer gave up four more. Jamie Benn had a goal and three assists, while Valeri Nichushkin had two and one to help make that all happen.

* Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz both had a goal and two assists. Man, those guys are good. They’re like…Greek gods. They’re Olympian those two, I swear.

* Terrible ‘ol Victor Hedman, not good enough to make the Swedish Olympic d-corps (Oduya, Tallinder are though), had three assists, which moved him to 11th in overall points-per-game by defenseman this year (29 points in 44 games). His true strength is defensive hockey though, so…wait, why the hell isn’t Hedman on the Swedish team? Holy hell.

* Andrej Sekera had a goal and two assists for the Canes, while Alex Semin sniped two more to help them top the Sabres 5-3. Semin now has six goals in his last four games (2, 1, 1, 2), which is half his year total of 12. Not bad son, not bad.

* Alex Stalock had a 20 save shutout vs. the Jets, which is about the least you can do in a shutout, I believe.

Carolina 3
Philadelphia 2 (Recap)

Montreal 1
Pittsburgh 5 (Recap)

Chicago 4
Detroit 5 (SO) (Recap)

Phoenix 2
Calgary 3 (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* Henrik Zetterberg had a three point night (all assists) in the Red Wings hard-fought 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. He’s a pretty special player – his pass to Nyqvist was evidence.

* The Penguins got two points performances from Evgeni Malkin (one and one), Jussi Jokinen (two goals) and Matt Niskanen (two assists) in their 5-1 rout of the Canadiens. Marc-Andre Fleury made 23 stops in the win, but that’s not all he did. See below for more!

* Claude Giroux tacked on another couple points to his season total, which brings him up to 46 in 51 games. He’s been chasing that PPG mark since starting slow, but he’s getting close. Nathan Gerbe did a thing too…also available below.

* Kari Ramo made 30 stops in the Flames win over Phoenix.

Los Angeles
Columbus (Recap)

Buffalo (Recap)

Dallas (Recap)

Philadelphia (Recap)

Colorado (Recap)

Edmonton (Recap)

Anaheim (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* The New York Islanders top line of Thomas Vanek, John Tavares and Kyle Okposo pushed the team past the Rangers in MSG last night, combining for seven points.

* Drew Stafford touched all three Buffalo goals (two and one), but it wasn’t enough for the lowly Sabres. Florida nipped them 4-3.

* Both Damien Brunner (just back from a knee injury) and Eric Gelinas had a goal and two assists each in the Devils 7-1 rout of St. Louis.

* RJ Umberger had two goals in Columbus’ 5-3 win over LA. That’s seven straight for CBJ, a franchise record.

* Craig Anderson was in the net for 34 shots and a shutout for Ottawa over Washington. Kari Lehtonen of the Dallas Stars also had a shutout last night, making 18 saves vs. the Wild.

* Phil Kessel and Nathan MacKinnon both scored twice, but it was Kessel’s Leafs who emerged victorious.

* Roberto Luongo stopped 28 of 29 shots to help the Canucks past the Oilers. Ben Scrivens made his first start for Edmonton at the other end, and stopped 25 of 27 shots in the loss.

* Ondrej Pavelec stopped 40 of 42 shots to help the Winnipeg Jets hand the Ducks their first home loss of the season. Which is kind of insane, in couple ways.

Notable Numbers

* Brad Marchand scored twice and Patrice Bergeron added two assists to help the Bruins top the Kings 3-2.

* Matt Read’s two goals against the Islanders wouldn’t be enough, as Kyle Okposo scored a late goal and the eventual shootout winner for New York. Okposo had a heck of a game – goal, assist, fight, shootout winner.

* Drew Shore scored twice and Scott Clemmensen made 35 saves to help the Panthers upset the Penguins in Pittsburgh. Jesse Winchester had a three assist night for the cats as well.

* Both Phil Kessel and Jake Gardiner had a goal and an assist, while Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier stopped 39 of 41 shots to help extend the Leafs winning streak to five games. It’s been nearly seven years since the Leafs last did that.

* Joe Pavelski’s scored twice to help the Sharks top the Flames.

Green-Nash goal


Boston 2
Chicago 3 (SO) (Recap)

Tampa Bay 5
Carolina 3 (Recap)

Washington 1
NY Rangers 4 (Recap)


Notable Numbers

* The Rangers and Capitals both extended streaks. Only issue: Rangers streak is wins, Caps is losses. Five straight now for the latter.

* Three men scored two goals on Sunday: Rick Nash (definitely heard of him), Brad Marchand (heard of him, I assume), and Mark Barberio (almost no chance).

* Some goalies played well on Sunday too. Corey Crawford’s 34 saves on 36 shots was good. Henrik Lundqvist’s 24 on 25 was too. But Ben Bishop’s 48 on 51 sort of gets the “best goalie performance of the night” nod.
