In a game that’ll be talked about more for Sidney Crosby’s supposed “slew foot” on Ryan Callahan, it saw Crosby extend his consecutive points streak to 13 games with an assist and made the Penguins 9-0-1 over their last ten games. Maxime Talbot, Kris Letang, and Chris Conner scored for the Pens while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots in the win. Henrik Lundqvist saved 24 shots in the loss while Marian Gaborik scored his fifth goal of the season. As for slew foot mania, we’ll surely be talking about this more tomorrow.
A sloppy game from the Hurricanes turned into a definitive win for the Stars. James Neal had two goals and Jamie Benn had a goal and an assist for the Stars as they won their fourth straight game. Kari Lehtonen was strong in net stopping 27 shots. Eric Staal had Carolina’s lone goal. The game got a bit feisty in the third period when Steve Ott and Tim Gleason exchange pleasantries after Gleason put a wicked hit on an unsuspecting Adam Burish.
In a game that should’ve been one that saw the Sens get on a win streak, it turns out they lose in one of their worst efforts of the season giving them losses in six of their last eight. Stuffing the Sens was former goalie Martin Gerber who saved 22 shots in the effort. Tom Gilbert, Andrew Cogliano, Gilbert Brule, and Taylor Hall did the scoring for Edmonton while Brian Elliott was mediocre in stopping just 21 shots. Nick Foligno scored his first goal of the year for Ottawa.
The Wild’s second period woes continued in what was an all-around awful game for Minnesota. After a scoreless first, Calgary got goals from Jay Bouwmeester and Jarome Iginla in the second to put the Wild out of their misery. Niklas Hagman added a third goal in the third period to ice it. Jose Theodore played strong despite the outcome saving 28 shots. Meanwhile, his counterpart Miikka Kiprusoff was flawless in stopping 32 shots in earning the shutout.
A lackluster effort out of the Kings turns into a strong win for the crosstown rivals from Anaheim. Jonas Hiller stopped 27 shots to earn the shutout while Cam Fowler and Jason Blake had the goals for the Ducks. Blake’s goal came late in the third as the Kings were trying to tie the game, but a two-on-one with Teemu Selanne turned into the nail in the coffin for the Kings. The loss dropped the Kings to 10th in the Western Conference. Don’t take that to mean things are bad though, things are so tight in the standings that they’re just three points out of second.
