  1. Boston scored twice in the first 2:05 of the third period to come back to beat Montreal 2-1.  Tyler Seguin and David Krejci sparked the quick offensive explosion with a goal and an assist each, eliminating the lead that P.K. Subban had given the Habs.
  2. Viktor Fasth recorded his first career shutout and his fourth straight win of the season as Anaheim downed Colorado 3-0.  Sheldon Souray had a goal and an assist, as did Saku Koivu for the Ducks.  Fasth made 31 stops for the shutout, and improves to 4-0-0 on the season as he makes a claim for the starters job in Anaheim.
  3. Jaromir Jagr‘s 668th goal of his career was the OT winner in Dallas’ 3-2 win over the Oilers.  Jagr also had an assist for a two point night, and Jamie Benn matched his offensive output.  Jagr’s goal moved him into a 10th place tie with Luc Robitaille for all time goals.  Derek Roy had the other Dallas goal while Edmonton got offense from Ales Hemsky (1G, 1A) and Justin SchultzSam Gagner assisted on the first Oilers goal, extending his point streak to 10 games.

There is a full dozen games on a busy Thursday including Ottawa hosting Carolina.  Other games of interest are Cory Schneider‘s return to the Vancouver net in Minnesota and Montreal paying a visit to Buffalo in a Northeast Division Matchup.
