BOSTON 4 NEW JERSEY 1
Jonas Gustavsson stopped 19 shots and picked up his seventh win of the season as the Bruins defeated New Jersey 4-1.
Bobby Farnham scored his sixth of the season. He has been a terrific find as Farnham had been considered a fighter before this season with some huge numbers in the minors. He still has 34 minutes in 25 games so the goals are a big added bonus.
Cory Schneider is now 17-13-5 as he gave up all four goals on 31 shots.
Dennis Seidenberg had a pair of assists.
CAROLINA 4 COLUMBUS 1
Elias Lindholm scored twice to lead the Hurricanes to a 4-1 win over Columbus.
Cam Ward turned aside 35 shots to improve his record to 12-11-4.
It was the Columbus debut of Seth Jones whom the Blue Jackets picked up in a trade with Nashville Wednesday. Jones saw 22:31 and was a minus-two.
Anton Forsberg got the start for Columbus and made 25 saves as he allowed three to get past him. He is now 1-2 this season.
CHICAGO 3 BUFFALO 1
It was quite a night in Chicago as Philip Danault scored the winner with his first career NHL goal as the Blackhawks beat the Sabres 3-1.
Corey Crawford was terrific in goal for Chicago as he turned aside 28 shots to improve his record to 22-10-2. Crawford has been outstanding of late and deserves to be a top-five fantasy goalie at this time.
Duncan Keith had a pair of assists.
COLORADO 5 NASHVILLE 3
Boy, is Pekka Rinne in a bad way. The Nashville netminder gave up four goals and there was not a bad one in the bunch but he was the hard luck loser once again as his record dropped to 16-12-6. The tough part is that he started the season with a 10-2-3 record. His .907 save percentage and 2.48 GAA are nothing to write home about.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 19 of 22 shots to improve to 15-10-3.
TAMPA BAY 3 EDMONTON 2
The Tampa Bay Lightning scored three times in the third period to overcome a 2-0 Edmonton lead and defeat the Oilers 3-2.
Ben Bishop made 24 saves to pick up his 16th win of the season.
Cam Talbot made his seventh start in eight games and was the hard-luck loser as he made 24 saves.
ANAHEIM 4 ST. LOUIS 3 (Shootout)
The big news of the night was the possible knee injury suffered by goaltender Jake Allen when Corey Perry ran into him, 27:03 into the game, forcing the netminder to leave. Brian Elliott took over and stopped 23-of-25 after Allen made 11 saves while giving up one.
John Gibson made 25 saves in the Ducks cage for the win.
Ryan Kesler scored twice including a power play effort in the third period to tie the game and send it into overtime.
Corey Perry with his 15th also scored for the Ducks as the game was decided in a shootout.
