-- Jarome Iginla attempted a pass, but the puck deflected off of Jake Muzzin for the big 600th career goal. He admitted it wasn't intentional, because Iginla's an upstanding kind of guy.

Iginla went three games with 599 goals and got it off a positive bounce. His next goal would tie Jari Kurri at 601.

He has generated 11 goals and 21 points with 25 PIM in 40 games so far this season.

-- Iginla grabs the headlines, yet Tyson Barrie stole the show. Barrie enjoyed the best performance of his young career, scoring two goals and generated two primary assists for his first four-point game.

He now has 27 points on the season.

-- Semyon Varlamov broke a four-game losing streak in impressive fashion, stopping 30 out of 31 shots. He's now 13-10-3 with a .913 save percentage and one shutout.

-- Strong night for the Avs power play, which went 3-for-5. The Kings went 1-for-5.

-- Colorado is pairing Nathan MacKinnon and Matt Duchene again, which could be very lucrative. Keep that in mind, especially for daily fantasy.


-- Ottawa had been shut out in two straight games, and the Senators were at risk of being blanked in three consecutive games when they were down 2-0.

Obviously that changed, and Bobby Ryan was the catalyst. He generated a primary assist on Mike Hoffman's goal, scored the tying tally and the OTGWG.

Ryan improved to 36 points in 39 games this season. He's almost generating a point-per-game obviously, yet Ryan's been fairly streaky this season.

-- Alexander Steen helped St. Louis to get off to that early lead with two primary assists. Troy Brouwer scored a nice opening tally and Kevin Shattenkirk connected on the power play.

Shattenkirk earned his tally, firing seven SOG and delivering two hits.

-- Erik Karlsson grabbed an assist while nothing five SOG. He didn't go over 30 minutes of ice time, but his 28:50 TOI is still pretty high considering these were back-to-back games.


-- Louis Domingue turned aside 35 out of 37 shots for the win, improving his record to 4-2-2 on the season. Domingue's individual stats look solid too with a nice save percentage (.926) and a shutout already.

Seems pretty safe to add him, even if it's on a short-term basis.

-- Shane Doan continues to be on quite a roll. He scored two goals in this one, giving him a remarkable run of seven goals in his past four games. Before that, Doan only had eight goals in his previous 26 contests.

His overall numbers are pretty good: 15 goals, 6 assists for 21 points and 42 PIM in 30 GP.

-- Daniel Sedin scored a goal and looked horrific in getting some teeth knocked out by an errant puck. He bounced back remarkably and seems to be OK.

-- Laurent Dauphin scored the first goal of his NHL career, hitting that mark in his third game. He's an interesting guy to watch with a halfway decent pedigree (39th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft).


-- Cam Talbot stopped all 29 Hurricanes shots for his first shutout of the season, and thus is first shutout as a member of the Edmonton Oilers. He's now on a two-game winning streak to improve his overall record to 7-11-2, with climbing numbers.

He's been looking pretty impressive since December kicked in.

-- Cam Ward did not grab the win, although he enjoyed a solid night stopping 26 out of 27 shots. This drops him to 11-11-4, and his overall numbers look ... as mediocre as usual.

-- Andrej Sekera scored the only goal of the game, his fifth with the Oilers. It must have been especially sweet for Sekera, as he spent the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons with Carolina.

-- This is part one of two very difficult things to dissect, as there were barely any SOGs (29 for Carolina, 27 for Edmonton) with just one goal.


-- This is the other shoulder shrug snoozer. This one was even worse, with just 43 SOG combined.

-- Dylan Larkin scored the only goal of the game, and it was a sweet one, his 14th tally of his already impressive rookie season.

-- Brad Richards deserves plenty of credit for his fantastic breakout pass. The 35-year-old has two points in his past two games, bumping him up to 12 points in 27 contests during his debut campaign with Detroit.

-- Petr Mrazek made all 22 saves for his second shutout of the 2015-16 season. His overall numbers are quite nice, and he keeps stating the case for the No. 1 gig over the long-term.

-- He didn't win thanks to the helpless situation he was in during that Larkin goal, but Cory Schneider continues to play fantastically.
