• Islanders 5, Rangers 3: After snapping a six-game losing streak against the Rangers on Tuesday, the Islanders are probalby hoping they can play their rivals more often. The last five games in this series -- including four this season -- have gone the Islanders' way. Tuesday's also ended a four-game Rangers winning streak, and it turned when Viktor Kozlov and Mike Skillinger scored goals within 27 seconds of each other. Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was allowed to hang around for all five Islanders goals.

  • Nets 101, Raptors 86: Yep, these are the two best teams in the Atlantic Division. With the win, the Nets move in to first place at 15-19, a half-game better than the Raptors' 15-20 mark. New Jersey only improved to their current record after winning four of five. Jason Kidd -- apparently undistracted by the domestic dispute with his wife -- had 10 points and 14 rebounds. No Nets game would be an easy win without Vince Carter; he put in 32.
