FROM ELIAS: Montreal native Martin Brodeur recorded his 20th regular-season win at Bell Centre when he made 29 saves to lead the Devils to a 4–1 road victory over the Canadiens. Though he's never played for the Canadiens, Brodeur ranks seventh in career wins at Bell Centre, which opened in March 1996. The only visiting goaltender with even half as many regular-season wins in that building as Brodeur is Ryan Miller with 11. Bell Centre is the third NHL venue in which Brodeur has posted at least 20 regular-season wins as a visiting player; the others are Pittsburgh's former home rink, Mellon Arena (23), and Nassau Coliseum (22).

Sharks 2, Capitals 1 (F/SO)
* Sharks: sixth straight win over Capitals
* Sharks: eighth shootout win this season (ties Capitals and Maple Leafs for most in NHL)
* Alex Ovechkin (WAS): goal (leads NHL with 33 this season); 2 goals in previous 9 games

Avalanche 3, Blackhawks 2 (OT)
* Tyson Barrie (COL): two goals (5) including OT winner (first career multi-goal game)
* Barrie: three of seven career goals have come in OT
* Andrew Shaw (CHI): goal (13), assist (third multi-point game this season)

FROM ELIAS: Defenseman Tyson Barrie scored his second goal of the game at the 4:09 mark of overtime to earn the Avalanche a 3–2 win. Barrie is only the second defenseman in Quebec/Colorado franchise history to record a multiple-goal game that included an overtime tally. The first was Adam Foote, with 2 goals in the Avs' 3–2 win at Edmonton on March 10, 2004.

Lightning 2, Rangers 1
* Lightning: won eight of last 10 road games
