Players of the Night:

Jeff Glass, Chicago Blackhawks: Glass continues to do things that he probably shouldn’t be doing. He’s a 32-year-old rookie netminder who only played his first NHL game a few days ago. Now, the Calgary native is 2-0-1 and performing admirably in the absence of Corey Crawford.

Andreas Athanasiou, Detroit Red Wings: On paper, Athanasiou beat the Ottawa Senators, scoring the regulation marker and then the overtime winner, which was pretty epic.

Highlights of the Night:

What can you say? There were only two games on Wednesday and history was matched in one of them:



Red Wings 2, Senators 1 (OT)

Blackhawks 5, Rangers 2
