• Devils 1 Rangers 0: It was another classic New Jersey game. Brad Lukowich scored in the first period to put them on top and their defense and goaltending made it stand up. Martin Brodeur was 26-26 on save opportunities and the Rangers did not get a single power play in the game.

    The win gives the Devils a commanding 10-point lead in the Atlantic Division. While there is still plenty of hockey left in the season, no one is playing better than New Jersey right now and unless the Rangers shake things up they will be battling to make the playoffs and not to win the division.

  • Pittsburgh 5 Islanders 2: Things looked good through the first two periods as New York had battled back from two different deficits to tie the game at 2, but things fell apart in the third period. Sidney Crosby got things started for the Penguins with a power-play goal and he added another as part of a three-goal third period that blew the game open.
  • DePaul 71 St. John's 63: The Red Storm collapsed in the second half, scoring only 28 points and watching an 8-point halftime lead turn into a 12-point defeat.
