• Blue Jackets goaltender Allen York recorded the first win of his NHL career with a 4–2 victory over the Red Wings on Wednesday. York is only the fifth goaltender in the last 20 seasons to post his first NHL win in a game against the Red Wings. The other goaltenders to do that since 1991–92 were Robert Esche (Jan. 4, 2000), Marc-Andre Fleury (Oct. 18, 2003), Rastislav Sana (Nov. 24, 2003) and Devan Dubnyk (Mar. 19, 2010).

• The Rangers overcame a 2–0 deficit to post a 4–2 win over the Jets in Winnipeg. Defenseman Michael Del Zotto began the Rangers’ comeback with a shorthanded goal in the second period. It was the first shorthanded goal of Del Zotto’s NHL career and the first SHG by a Rangers backliner this season. The Rangers had two shorthanded goals from defenseman last season, both by Marc Staal.
